Historic Preservation

Woods • Peacock has extensive experience with historic buildings, many of which appear on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, including surveys, renovations, restorations, alterations and repairs. Whether the goal of the project is historic façade preservation or conversion of the building’s use, we have worked with owners and other team members to resolve the distinct challenges that each project presents. Our experience ranges from the restoration of the entrance at Mount Vernon in Virginia to the renovation of the U.S. Embassy Chancery in Rome.

A few tasks of the myriad of projects have included:

  • Restoration of masonry and stone
  • Underpinning of historic stone foundations
  • Restoration and rehabilitation of waterfront structures
  • Needling and supporting historic facades during major renovations

Woods • Peacock, as the structural engineer, was a part of the design team receiving the 2005 Mayor’s Award for Historical Preservation for the renovation and restoration of Cleveland Elementary School in Washington, D.C.
