Preservation for us is honoring our past and preparing Maine’s downtowns and village centers for their future. Maine has an abundance of quality historic architecture prominently located along our Main Streets. Maintaining and adaptively re-using these anchors of community identify and pride present great challenges, and meeting those challenges demands the clever balancing of differing and occasionally contradictory considerations.
We are recognized across the state for expertise in Historic Preservation. Our approach and success is based on skillfully reconciling the interrelated demands of building conditions, program use, preservation philosophy, historic and cultural significance, life safety, accessibility, market feasibility, costs and municipal planning. The Gannett House Project: A First Amendment Experience is an excellent example.
