How I Can
The objective of a building history is to tell the story of the building from the date of construction to present day. By placing your building within a historic context and revealing alterations we can more accurately preserve the building's character defining features.
What are the historically significant features of your building and what condition are they in? An assessment systematically works through a building and documents materials, condition, and integrity.
The second part of an assessment makes specific recommendations to mitigate the loss of character defining features and to help the overall health and appearance of a building.
Deferred care leads to the loss of historic materials and features which intern result in costly repairs. We make maintenance feasible and manageable by designing a maintenance program to be predictive and proactive rather than reactionary. Cyclical conservation will reduce costs and keep your building intact.
Picking the right contractor can be a difficult and lengthy process. Using my experience in the trades, I will develop a scope of work, hire, and oversee projects to ensure they are done effectively and efficiently.
Upgrading our historic buildings so they can reflect our environmental needs is a goal for many. I can help you develop strategies for increasing your efficiency while not causing damage to your building.
