Preservation Design Works (PVN) makes historic preservation projects happen through our unique integration of research, preservation design, real estate development services, and a deep understanding of the regulatory and economic framework of historic preservation. We embrace challenges, respect all project stakeholders, and have a broad understanding of heritage.

PVN leadership and staff have core values that drive our intentions, relationships, and projects. We seek team members who share these values:

OPEN-MINDED. 

We genuinely listen and consider all stories and communities in our understanding of heritage. The unconventional solutions we develop may be considered outside the boundaries of normative preservation. By taking a second look at resources that others may not view as "historic," we expand the meaning of heritage and work to make more preservation projects happen.

TECHNICAL EMPATHY. 

We will always walk a mile in our client's shoes; we treat their concerns and resources as our own. All of our clients and project stakeholders are treated with respect.

COLLABORATIVE. 

Our interdisciplinary office thinks across and outside of our own discipline and expertise. We support each other on projects and thrive on the synergy of our collective backgrounds and skills. We feel that the best solutions are the result of teamwork.

RESPONSIVE.

Communication is our modus operandi to provide transparency in an opaque process, keep our clients up-to-date, and create actionable solutions.

Interested in joining our team?

If you share these values and want to be a part of our team, we would love to hear from you. PVN hires professionals who are customer‐service focused, open‐minded, supportive, and detail-oriented.

To be considered, please submit a cover letter and resume to Tamara Ludt.
