Statement of Purpose

Since it's inception, in 1975 Walter B. Melvin Architects, LLC has had a deep appreciation for the rich detail and authentic workmanship of older buildings and historic structures. With our high professional standards and commitment to the preservation of historic detail, we strive to achieve clearly specified, long lasting, high-quality restoration, while stressing an empathy for 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 restoration techniques that have become industry standards.

Our architects, presevationists, 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 to be equally important. Well-preserved buildings must be both financially and structurally sound.
