"Due to the ephemeral nature of some building materials, the most delicate approach must be taken."

Historic Preservation

Historic preservation or conservation (UK) aims to preserve and protect the built environment. This includes buildings, monuments, landscapes and sites which embody cultural and historical significance. Relics of the past which are identified with a key historical person, event, architectural style, engineering feat or reflection of the past deserve protection from the encroachment of development, insensitive additions, change of use, and demolition. The tenants of preservation are to ‘do no harm’ to the structure and to balance interventions with sensitivity to the building fabric, historical significance, and ensure that additions or stabilization efforts are reversible.
