Historic Preservation

Sustainable and Historic Building Projects

Historic projects require intimate knowledge of regulations and a passion for the details of historic design. Encore lives and breathes preservation in the Baltimore, Washington DC and Mid Atlantic Region and is ready to assist with:

  • National Register Nominations
  • Historic Tax Credits
  • Maryland Inventory of Historic Places (MIHP) forms
  • Determination of Eligibility forms (DOE)
  • Grant Assistance
  • Section 106 Review

Preservation Throughout The Project

A successful preservation project starts with clear project goals and understanding if the project is a restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive use.

We help our clients understand and fulfill the many local, state and federal preservation requirements for approvals that drive potential funding and budgets, timelines, uses, and historic material treatments.

Encore provides services at every phase of the project to ensure a timely, well documented, and successfully constructed project.
