While often considered a challenge by many, for GBCA the integration of heritage resources within new development is an exciting opportunity for recognizing the heritage value of an historic place and managing change in a creative and useful way. GBCA prepares required heritage documents and assists with obtaining approvals for site plan and building permits. Our collaboration with project teams continues by providing heritage related construction documents at later phases of the project, including integration of building systems into existing heritage fabric. GBCA’s expertise in restoration technology provides invaluable service to the design team throughout the design and construction phases of projects. Our contribution to projects always begins with an understanding of what the heritage site has to offer and where the programmatic shortcomings are.
