HISTORIC BUILDINGS

 

We understand the exacting requirements of adapting and restoring historic buildings.

 

Our documented success is crucial for ventures of this type because historic buildings are an architectural challenge both in their maintenance and adaptation to contemporary use.

 

We have a wide range of experience in the care of such buildings and in their careful conversion to modern uses.
