Preservation Technology

BLENDING MATERIAL KNOWLEDGE WITH TECHNICAL REALITY

The Preservation Technology Studio understands the opportunities presented by the continuing use of existing and historic buildings. By blending good design, new technology, and sustainable practices, we extend the service-life of these structures and their character-defining components. Our approach is a preservation-minded one, emphasizing treatments that are reversible and don’t impact the rest of the structure or the environment.

Evaluations Informed by Experience

Our conservators are experienced professionals with knowledge of building materials, deterioration mechanisms, and repair techniques. Because we understand historic building materials and their changing uses over time, we respond to projects quickly, and guide sound evaluations and repair decisions. Our collective experience ranges wide—materials science and conservation, carpentry, structural engineering, and architecture—yielding a multi-disciplinary approach to our condition assessments and material analyses.
