History and Architectural History

PaleoWest’s professional staff meet the United States Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualification Standards under History and Architectural History (as defined in 36 CFR Part 61).

We assist our clients with detailed historical evaluations of the built environment including residential structures, historic districts, commercial buildings, farmsteads, industrial complexes, bridges, water conveyance structures, military installations, and others.

With offices coast-to-coast in the United States, PaleoWest is uniquely able to mobilize expert staff to conduct historic-period built environment studies in any geography and in support of all types of undertakings--from single building historical evaluations and assessments to large scale projects addressing hundreds of built environment resources, we do it all. We use state-of-the-art technology and the latest trends in research and historic preservation to ensure maximum efficiency and that our client’s compliance needs are met. Our staff is committed to providing the best quality deliverables on time and within budget.
