Historic Tax Credit Applications: Historic tax credits are a powerful financial incentive for building reuse.
Section 106 Review Process: Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA) requires Federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties. Any project receiving federal funds, licenses, or permits, must complete the Section 106 review process.
- Preservation Project Strategies: PVN was created to increase the use of historic buildings. We bring the leadership, expertise, and strategic thinking to develop solutions for the most difficult preservation projects.
National Register Nominations and Historical Research: The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the official list of the United States’ historic places worthy of preservation. Most preservation funding sources, such as historic tax credits or grants, require NRHP-listing or eligibility. We are open-minded in our understanding of historic significance, which expands the meaning of heritage and makes more preservation projects happen.
Historical Architecture: Historical architects are the core of preservation design services at PVN. Our architects work with other PVN staff, clients, and project stakeholders to collaboratively develop project strategies and design solutions that meet preservation standards and guidelines, project goals, and existing historic materials and conditions of the building. PVN is not a full-service design firm, but rather uses historic preservation design and expertise to make historic preservation projects happen.
Historic Preservation Approvals: We guide our clients and projects to successful approvals at the local, state, and federal levels.
Preservation Funding Sources: Historic buildings are eligible for financial incentives for reuse. We translate heritage value to market value.
- Construction Review: Historic tax credit projects require additional due diligence during construction. All work must meet the approved Part 2 application. Any construction that is not approved can jeopardize approval of the project for historic tax credits.
