  • Upon completion of the project, it is inspected by an experienced engineer for preservation code compliance and quality standards.

EXPERIENCE

Our Project Managers have been involved with jobs that have required the investigation of existing structures for renovation and/or rehabilitation. They are familiar with an array of construction methods, and have analyzed structures over 100 years old. Some historic renovation projects have required the development of new methods of structural problem solution and retrofit techniques.
