Firm Profile

Experts in Historic Preservation

Architectural Preservation Services, LLC (APS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Worcester Eisenbrandt, Inc. (WEI), and was founded in 2008 to provide specialized services in the field of historic preservation. The team consists of conservators, masons, carpenters, metalsmiths, artists, craftspeople, and project managers dedicated to working in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, as well as with the Code of Ethics of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works.

By collaborating closely with WEI, APS is able to manage a project from the initial documentation and assessment of existing conditions to the implementation of treatments. The APS team has the knowledge, experience, and resources to work with a variety of materials, including masonry, wood, metals, plaster and paint finishes, mortars, ceramic, tile, and glass. Projects vary greatly in scope, from assessing the condition of a decorative plaster ceiling to repairing an early twentieth-century chair, and from conducting analysis of a nineteenth-century mortar to providing quality control on a multi-million-dollar construction project. Clients include architects, engineers, general contractors, museums, educational institutions, government agencies, developers, religious organizations, cemeteries, and private homeowners.
