Historic Preservation/Restoration

More than half of Structures North’s projects involve historic structures, many of these in initially poor condition and nearly all of them needing intervention. We take pride in our ability to develop appropriate material treatments and design solutions for the specific conditions at hand. Sometimes it is the purpose of our work to reverse the weathering effects of time, or to counter damage that has occurred from lack of proper maintenance. Other times, we must correct as-originally-built flaws in historic structures with discretely placed modifications or supplements that better satisfy the original builders’ intent while providing improved safety and longevity. Always in such projects where structural modifications are necessary, our goal is to leave no visible trace.
