Historic Preservation

We have worked on historic preservation and adaptive reuse in some of the most iconic, grand, and glorious structures in the world. Fifteen buildings in our portfolio are listed as National Historic Landmarks, National Historic Sites, or on the National Register of Historic Places, and 10 of our international projects have historic designations as well. Our experience has given us a critical understanding of historic preservation and repurposing as we integrate ongoing organizational changes in the workplace, and sustainable heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, security and other technology systems to give new life and relevancy to significant historic structures.

KCCT’s restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse projects include the Schoenborn Palace (1643-1656) in Prague, Czech Republic; the White House (1792); U.S. Capitol Building (1793-1865); National Building Museum (1882); Library of Congress, Thomas Jefferson Building Renovation (1890-1897); and the U.S. Supreme Court (1935), among many others. Our expertise in historic preservation, restoration, and repurposing is one of our firm’s strengths.
