As a structural engineering company located in the historically rich environment of New England, we at Summit have worked on many historical restoration projects. These projects have required a variety of services in specialized expert knowledge areas including:
New England contains many historical buildings and as time passes these structures often require renovations and repairs to meet current demands (new uses, energy improvements, expansions, etc.). The goal at Summit Engineering with regards to historic preservation and restoration is to provide solutions that meet or exceed the Secretary of Interior Standards for The Treatment of Historic Properties, while meeting the needs of the property owner.
Summit Engineering has significant experience working on historic structures. Examples include: the rehabilitation of the Holmes Building in Eastport, ME; Goodwill Hinckley Moody Chapel Restoration (winner of a Maine Preservation award); Woodbury Mills in Dover, NH (on the National Register for Historic Places); the Steam Bending Building at the Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston, MA; the renovation of the Parish of Christ Church in Andover, MA; Searle’s Castle in Windham, NH; and 175 Market St. in Portsmouth, NH to name a few.
With more than 50-years of combined experience, our engineers at Summit work with the client to preserve historic buildings while modernizing them for present uses. Our engineers can provide renovation solutions for a variety of historic materials, as well as facades and other portions of the structure. Our team at Summit understands that each restoration project is unique and we work to provide innovative solutions that meet the client’s present and future needs.
