Historic preservation and adaptive reuse have become important economic tools to provide needed facilities yet maintain cultural interests and heritage. These projects can be challenging. AHA’s engineers and experts are well versed in balancing modern energy conservation and building performance goals with the sensitivity necessary to preserve our historic fabric and cultural history. AHA provides building owners a process of analysis and engineering that includes comprehensive management strategies, long-term planning, solid cost models and engineering solutions that help optimize capital and maintenance investments. AHA’s effectiveness is based on the following skills: advisory services tailored to project goals, materials research to determine existing capabilities based on our knowledge of building types back to the early 1800s, and our diagnostic testing, evaluation, and modeling capabilities. Our experience is underscored by our ability to work collaboratively with restoration architects, structural preservation engineers and historians. The firm’s experience includes a wide range of historical buildings from auditoriums to school structures.
