Contractors and Skilled Trades

Contractors and skilled tradespeople come to us when facing difficult problems with old buildings.  When the standard solution seems overly destructive and expensive, Heritage Standing Inc. can assess if other options are available.  We can answer questions such as “does the rubble stone foundation really need to be replaced with concrete?”  and design alternative paths to reach code objectives.  Historic construction methods and materials must be handled knowledgeably to avoid unnecessary construction and accelerated deterioration from incompatible repairs.  Heritage Standing often provides the following services to contractors and skilled trades people:

  • condition assessment, including past performance evaluation
  • compatible materials design (mortar, etc)
  • project management during construction
  • integrative project design and build: collaboration throughout the project with skilled tradespeople, owners, and design team
