Public agencies, house museums, and other non-profit owners of important historic properties require detailed knowledge on which to base restoration projects. The Historic Structure Report (HSR) is the first step in that process. It brings together architectural historians, historic architects, engineers, and other materials conservation experts to create a document that provides a tremendous amount of information.
The HSR typically contains a detailed history of the property, an architectural history and evolution of its construction, an assessment of its historical and architectural significance, and an assessment of its condition. It then provides recommendations for treatments of its materials and features along with photographs and drawings to document all of the above. Our firm is proud to have provided owners of a variety of building types with the necessary information on which to create a rehabilitation or restoration program.
