Do More With What You Have...
Preservationists fight to save historic resources and educate the public about the significance of our built environment. We are faced with mounting challenges that radically alter our world, as climate change, population shifts, and economic difficulties force us to live differently. Meanwhile, the bulk of our built environment is terminating its prescribe 50 to 100 year life cycle. Luckily, statistics are showing positive signs that Americans are doing more with what they have by investing in existing buildings.
