·         Rehabilitating historic structures in a multitude of ways including needs assessments, energy efficiency projects, façade maintenance, and structural projects.

·     Helping save iconic community structures through adaptive reuse.

·     Hands-on conservation and landscape projects for community or public lands improvements.
