Find the Preservation Skills You Need

Preservation of historic properties takes special skills—skills acquired by men and women through training and experience. These skills are known as “craftsmanship.” Owners of historic properties have a need to locate skilled artisans. Artisans have a need to be known for their expertise. HGAC is offering a place for owners to locate artisans through this listing available here on our website.

"The most rewarding aspect of our architecture practice must certainly be when there is an existing acknowledged historic building involved to be restored and reused. It could be part of the fabric of the program to be augmented with new construction and adapted to a new use. Maybe it is the entire focus of the project and it is to be brought back to a specific time and use during a long existence."
