Advantages of Historic Preservation

Mahogany, Inc. Historic Preservation Orchard Street Church

Our work includes Orchard Street Church, in which we received a Historic Preservation Award from Baltimore Heritage, Inc.

We have experience in historic preservation, particularly as it pertains to wood. Preserved commercial spaces are an asset to their communities, and add character and charm to their neighborhoods and often have a rich history. If you’re the business owner of a historic building, and your goal is to keep your business around for even more decades to come, then give us a call. Here is more detail about the advantages of historic preservation. 

Historic Wood Restoration Helps with Economic Development 

Of course, historic wood restoration has aesthetic value, but it helps with economic development as well. It keeps neighborhoods stable and jobs within the community. On state and local levels, historic preservation is beneficial. When an older building runs the risk of being shut down due to structural issues, it means that many jobs could be lost. Not only are we experts regarding historic wood restoration, but we have experience in building commissioning as well. If you own an older business or establishment and want to make sure that it’s running as it should, we can help you. Spring will be here very soon, and as things heat up, you want to make sure that your HVAC systems are efficiently running and that your business is energy-efficient. 

Historic Preservation Shines a New Light on an Older Building 

Historic buildings have a lot of rich history that impacts the people that grew up around them, and newer generations. For older buildings to survive throughout the ages, it takes a general contracting company that cares to preserve them. We’re that company. Because we’re a locally-owned business, we care that our entire community thrives. We care about the upkeep of historical landmarks. We’re passionate about keeping commercial spaces intact so that children, parents, and grandparents have stories to share about their experiences in a particular place. An older business being in pristine condition helps with tourism as well. 

Our work includes Orchard Street Church, in which we received a Historic Preservation Award from Baltimore Heritage, Inc. We’ve also worked for Baltimore City College as well as the Mount, our most recent project.
