What our clients are saying about us:

Minnesota Historical Society

"Meghan Elliott and her Preservation Design Works (PVN) team brought a new level of energy, urgency, and depth of multidisciplinary insight in the creation of a business plan well positioned to ensure Minnesota will be among the leaders in the emerging trend of service-based historic preservation training. The PVN team was exceptionally professional and compassionate toward all stakeholders in the process - a spirit that was a critical success factor in creating this very useful business plan." 

- David Grabitske, Manager, Outreach Services at MNHS

Minneapolis Community and Technical College 

"Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) was bequeathed the historic Wells Center in 1996. While always grateful for gifts, MCTC was not well-positioned to manage this historic asset. Preservation Design Works (PVN), led by Meghan Elliott, first designed an affordable maintenance plan. Then, far beyond her paid scope, Meghan enlisted Project for Pride in Living (PPL) in a State Legacy Grant application last spring. It was an ingenious strategy and a great way forward for this building. When nothing looks promising for a challenging historic property, I recommend turning to PVN." 

Mike Christenson, Vice President at Minneapolis Community and Technical College

RYAN COMPANIES US, INC.

“Ryan Companies US, Inc. recently had the opportunity to work with Meghan and her team for the first time on a historic project. We found the company to be very knowledgeable, extremely responsive, possess great communication skills, produce comprehensive and professional documentation and to be totally service-focused. We subsequently have awarded additional work to the firm. Working with Meghan and her team has been an enjoyable experience and we look forward to building even a stronger relationship.” 

- Bob Parr, Ryan Companies, Director of  Development

APIARY, LLC 

Meghan Elliott and her team at PVN have been instrumental in making the Hollywood Theater project happen. They’ve worked with me and the City, neighborhood, state, National Park Service, and project team to phase a challenging historic rehab in an iconic theater building that’s been dark for 30 years. The Hollywood Theater project has been a demonstration of PVN’s expertise, range of services, and leadership in preservation. This project would not have happened without them.
