Partnering to Preserve History
The restoration and preservation of historic buildings embraces national, cultural and social values as well as furthers economic interests. It is a complex process that requires multi-disciplinary knowledge, experience and expertise. In addition, historic preservation interfaces increasingly with green construction and sustainability, introducing new factors into the planning and implementation processes.
