Statement of Purpose

Walter B. Melvin Architects, LLC has a deep appreciation for the rich detail and authentic workmanship of older buildings and historic structures. With our high professional standards and our commitment to the preservation of historic detail, we strive to achieve clearly specified, high-quality restoration, while stressing an empathy with the original building design and materials. We apply proven construction methods to each project, with a focus on long-term restoration solutions. In addition to using traditional strategies, we have developed many new restoration techniques designed for a variety of building concerns.

Our architects and project managers work closely with clients, providing personal service and emphasizing open, full communication. We establish a direct rapport with building owners, cooperative board members and building managers.

At Walter B. Melvin Architects, LLC, we look beyond the architectural construction concerns; considering financial planning for each project as equally important. Well-preserved buildings must be both financially and structurally sound.
