Historic structures present unique challenges since they often do not meet contemporary performance standards. Archaic materials and systems are susceptible to inappropriate repairs and modifications, and deferred maintenance.
We combine in-depth, specialized knowledge of façade restoration, historic materials conservation, and archaic structural systems with cutting-edge structural analysis and computer modeling capabilities. We investigate root causes and design effective and sensitive repairs, seeking out the most appropriate and cost effective solutions for each project. We strive to minimize impact to the historic fabric by applying our practical experience in nondestructive evaluation techniques, minimally invasive methods and remote monitoring.
We can also assist you in implementing temporary protection and stabilization measures for historic structures that are in a vulnerable condition, while long-term solutions are developed.
We are well versed in the required historic preservation approvals processes involving regulatory agencies at the local, state and federal levels, and can guide your project through the sometimes confusing filing and review procedures.
