  • In instances where public money is being spent on the modification, rehabilitation, or demolition of a historic or potential historic building we can assist with your needs as you seek a “No Adverse Impact” letter from the SHPO and/or NPS. Our services for Section 14.09 and Section 106 review strive to come up with amicable solutions for both the client and the SHPO/NPS when tax credits are not being used, but compliance with the Department of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation is required.
