Project Description

Historic structures present unique challenges since they often do not meet contemporary performance standards. We combine in-depth, specialized knowledge of façade restoration, historic materials conservation, and older 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 have worked on hundreds of individual landmarks recognized on state and city historic registers, and are thoroughly familiar with all of the structural materials found in historic buildings, including:

  • Timber
  • Masonry
  • Plaster
  • Concrete
  • Iron
  • Steel
