Implementation

ICC provides, with its own crew and management personnel, a full range of specialized conservation contracting services for historic structures. As conservation contractors who understand the theory and practice of historic preservation (and especially the aging and repair of building materials), we are able to implement and manage projects efficiently and to address anomalies as they arise. ICC ensures that the goals established in the design phase are realized during the implementation phase. Some of the services that ICC provides are listed below.
