We care about more than the age of your building. The existing built environment has a huge impact on community development and the natural environment. The fact that they are also beautiful is just a perk! Ask us about how your project can help make an impact.
Our blend of forensic consulting, contracting and historic preservation experience makes us unique, and affords us understanding to bridge the gap between modern expectations and historic building construction. In our consults, our recommendations are not only materially appropriate, but also practical for our clients. As contractors we provide services with an understanding of historic building methods, the life cycle and practicality of historic materials, and the most affordable and appropriate ways to approach our projects. We also aim to educate building owners on the importance of appropriate maintenance to assure the longevity of their properties.
Blind Eye aims to reach clients who have the same passion for the maintenance of their historic buildings that we do, as our core values guide all our historic restoration work:
- To value the durability and longevity of historic materials and methods over the designed obsolesce and disposable mentality of modern construction.
- To respect the intentions and skill of the original craftspeople and builders as we respect the labor of our own employees and craftspeople.
- To maintain as much original material and integrity as possible with every treatment to do our part diverting construction debris from landfills.
