Historic buildings that are largely intact or meet certain criteria must be recorded using methods significantly different than archaeological sites. Additionally, the requirements established by local, state, and federal agencies for the preservation of architectural history vary broadly. Our team members apply a specialized skill set to evaluate these properties, ensuring that all regulations are met.
Metcalf employs team members who are able to perform basic compliance activities, including Historic American Building Survey (HABS) and Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) documentation for architectural resources. Our staff is prepared for projects where the main focus is architectural history as well as projects involving a mixture of architectural history and archaeological sites. Metcalf brings the specialized knowledge that is required to complete your projects.
