We were hired to provide solutions to this former DuPont property in Delaware regarding repair mortars and plasters. This is the place where smokeless powder was improved upon and which helped us in WW1. There's always an interesting story behind every old place we find ourselves visiting. We would love to hear the stories you have behind your vintage building and help you with its refurbishment!

Adaptive reuse: Much more than historic preservation. Developers, architects, and engineers had to figure out the best way to preserve culturally significant buildings while updating the structures to meet current code and development standards and incorporate modern systems.

We all love historic homes, but how did our grandparents survive hot and steamy summers?? The answer: those older homes had a few tricks up their sleeves.

Some of us might wonder how our grandparents survived hot and steamy summers before AC became a common household feature, but the fact is older homes had a few tricks up their sleeves.

The use of Lime Plaster in unconventional places.
Simon Dale spent about $5,200 to turn a plot of land in the woods into a home that looks a lot like something out of a Lord of the Rings shire for him and his family.

"All over America, preservation projects are expanding housing options, helping cities becoming more affordable, and demonstrating that history, sustainability, fairness, and economic vitality can go hand-in-hand"

Historic neighborhoods provide benefits to everyone, not just homeowners.
