Another publication where the advantages of historic preservation are highlighted in a place where you would typically expect only to see accolades for new design and construction. A companion piece to the article I shared on Monday, this one focuses on the financial incentives available, tools we have been using for years. Some of the comments I provided to the previous article find their way into this one also.
NORMAN ALSTON architects
For the past 30 years, Norman Alston Architects has shown the possibilities that are available when important historic buildings and sites are thoughtfully preserved and equipped for modern, productive use. The firm has completed successful, award-winning restorations, renovations, and additions by demonstrating that preservation is economically advantageous, environmentally responsible and culturally invigorating. Our projects are often catalysts for redevelopment of the surrounding community. Successful projects range from important large structures in large urban areas to numerous small projects in rural communities where professional skills in historic preservation are often assumed to be unavailable.
