Commitment to Safety & Preplanning

Technology-Driven Solutions for Historic Preservation
STRUCTURAL specializes in integrating technology-driven building envelope repair and restoration solutions through our specialty contracting services, allowing us to restore both the aesthetic appeal and structural integrity of a variety of historic structure types.
We collaborate with our design partners, including STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES, a Structural Group company, to perform mock-ups and tests to ensure that the methods and schedules selected are the optimal solution. Our commitment to the project extends to adherence, as required, to the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings, which translates into Historic Tax Credits for owners.
By teaming with select industry-leading design firms that focus on historic structures and critical performance areas such as building envelope design, and through the added solution building services of STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES, STRUCTURAL can provide customers with turnkey, value-added, Investigate-Design-Build solutions to historic building preservation and restoration.
Turnkey services with our integrated teams typically start with a comprehensive condition assessment. The combined expertise of our team provides clients with optimal solutions that create durable repairs with the lowest life cycle costs.
After initial analysis, the team moves into the solution building/design phase. In specialty related areas, solutions may include the uses of STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ proprietary products.
