When it comes to design review guidelines, we have always been in the forefront. Our manuals for residential and commercial areas nationwide were among the first of their kind. Today they continue to set the standard for clarity and practicality, making the work of local historic commissions and review boards easier. Recent projects include updating design guidelines for Georgetown, South Carolina, Mooresville, North Carolina and Abita Springs, Louisiana.
Our manuals typically include more than 100 illustrations providing property owners and review boards with concise information and realistic choices about appropriate rehabilitation and new construction. We continually track trends, new materials and fresh approaches to design guideline issues.
The firm’s Principal, Phil Thomason lectures frequently about design guidelines and preservation planning issues at meetings and conferences across the country.
