ASSESSMENT & PRECONSTRUCTION SERVICES

    • Historic Structures Reports: Historic Structures Reports may be required before construction can begin on a significant structure. Our in-house Historic Preservation Specialist is qualified by the Secretary of the Interior to perform site assessments and draft historic structure reports. These reports detail historic context and how the proposed project may affect the existing historic resource.
    • Site Assessment: Our Historic Preservation Specialist, in partnership with our skilled craftspeople and tradesmen, will evaluate and determine site conditions for use in preconstruction phase.
    • Experience-Based Estimating: Our Preconstruction and Estimating team offers realistic estimates and value engineering options based on many years of experience working with Historical Architects and on historic preservation and adaptive reuse projects. 
    • Preservation Planning: Our team will partner with you to develop a step-by-step plan that includes some or all aspects of the historic preservation process, as desired. This includes sourcing historically appropriate material, site planning, environmental contaminant assessment, and work with the federal, state, and local preservation officers to ensure compliance.
    • Preventative Maintenance Planning: Preventative maintenance is the best way to reduce building life cycle costs. We provide case-specific plans that take both current issues and anticipated requirements into account. 
    • Preservation Law Compliance: Our team is experienced in complying with local, state, and federal laws pertaining to historic preservation, and can supply guidance and documentation in that regard.
    • Architectural Surveys: We offer architectural survey services, documenting existing architectural components, as may be required for compliance with preservation guidelines or may be utilized in grant applications.  
    • Adaptive Reuse Planning: The most sustainable building is the one that is already built. Loven Contracting will work with Flagstaff property owners to repurpose existing structures to suit current needs.
