A One-Stop-Shop For Your Existing Building Needs.

We specialize in existing and historic buildings. From design, to tax credits, to green certifications. We believe that good design is holistic and must be sustainable from top to bottom. We offer numerous sustainable design services to cater to new, existing, and historic structures.  Whether you’re looking to lower operating costs on an existing building or design a new benchmark project and get LEED certification, we can help you every step of the way.

Preservation in the United States exists on a sliding scale in terms of age-value.  Any building that has been in existence for 50+ years (from today's date) has the opportunity to be listed on the National Register of  Historic Places and apply for Historic Tax Credits. Whether it’s a designated  historic structure or an existing building looking for designation, our staff is trained to navigate the process.
