Historic Preservation

Respect for the designers, artisans and craftsmen who created this country’s architectural history is the driving force for our firm’s dedication to historic preservation. The restoration and architectural conservation of historic buildings is critical to understanding the character and values of those who founded our nation. The first step in many preservation projects is to document a property’s historical and architectural significance and establish the appropriate direction for future treatment. These efforts typically include archival research, architectural, structural and archeological investigations, conditions assessments, a statement of treatment philosophy and specific recommendations for implementation of preservation and conservation strategies.
