Historic Structures Reports/Materials AnalysisMusic_Hall.jpg

Preservation Company works with owners of historic structures in a number of ways. Oftentimes our work starts off with the preparation of a historic structures report, which provides a comprehensive guide to the historic building fabric of a particular resource. Although HSR’s vary depending on the resource and the use/audience for the document, they typically include a history of the resource, an analysis of its character-defining features and their condition and treatment suggestions.

Many times Preservation Company’s expertise relating to individual historic buildings will take a different form depending on the project and the client. Our work in this vein varies from consultation on historic building materials (and their replacement when necessary), to testimony about historic resources in historic districts.
