Structure Relocation




Structure relocation is the process of moving a structure from one location to another by disassembling and then reassembling it at the required destination, or transporting it whole. For the latter, the building is first raised and then may be pushed on temporary rails or dollies if the distance is short. Otherwise, wheels, such as flatbed trucks, are used. These moves can be complicated and require the removal of protruding parts of the building, such as the chimney, as well as obstacles along the journey, such as overhead cables and trees.
Reasons for moving a building range from commercial reasons such as scenery, to preserving an important or historic building. Moves may also be made simply at the whim of the owner, or to separate a building from the plot of land that it stands on.



Restoration


Restoration includes preservation, leaving as much material untouched as possible, reconstruction to replace missing elements, and repair work to bring the building to a historically accurate condition in one particular time period. This may include removing some historic building elements (after documenting them) to make the building historically accurate for a specific date in history.



Consultation


Is there a project where you don't have all the right players and pieces in place? We can fill in as a consultant to help you in various capacities from lending insight on a recommendation basis to having our own crews come and complete the project. We use our experience to guide local contractors or carpenters to produce the right finish or look for your project.
