106 Reviews are mandated by governmental agencies. The purpose is to review extant resources in a given location and/or area to determine if the resources are architecturally and/or historically significant. The identified resources are then evaluated according to the National Park Service Criteria for evaluation to determine their eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places. At this time, the resources are also evaluated for possible further documentation. The purpose of 106 Review is to identify, document and protect significant resources from pending or future activity, such as road construction, or other activity. Our firm is well qualified to complete these reviews as is illustrated by the following examples.

Conservation Assessments

The "Heritage Preservation" provides conservation assessment programs (CAP) in the form of non-competitive grants to conduct general conservation assessments of museum sites and collections. A conservation assessment provides an overview of all of a museum's collections and environmental conditions, as well as its policies and procedures relating to collections and the building's care.

Heritage Preservation supports a two-day site visit by a conservation professional and/or historic preservation consultant who conducts the assessment and writes a report making recommendations.

Our firm has participated in several Heritage Preservation projects acting as an architectural conservator.


The Historic American Building Survey, "HABS", was established by the National Park Service in 1933 with the purpose of compiling a record of America's historically and architecturally significant buildings through photographic, written, and graphic documentation. The Historic American Engineering Record, "HAER", was also established by the National Park Service in 1969 to document historic engineering and industrial sites. HABS and HAER documentation is important to America's architectural resources. Our firm has done both types of documentation.
