Historic Architectural Services

ECORPís Cultural Resources Department includes architectural historians with experience in the identification and evaluation of historic-period resources such as houses, barns, commercial buildings, mining landscapes, industrial sites, public utilities, ranches, military structures, bridges, farmsteads, historic districts, and other elements of the built environment. ECORP utilizes public and private archives, libraries, and historical societies to develop high quality historic research designs, innovative mitigation strategies, and to answer complex research questions.

ECORPís architectural historians conduct all types of large and small scale federal, state, and local environmental compliance projects carried out under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Sections 106 and 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

ECORPís architectural history staff meets the Secretary of the Interiors Professional Qualifications Standards for Architectural History and History.
