Historic Preservation in Local Communities
Winston Churchill said, “We shape our buildings, and then our buildings shape us.” The same thought holds true for communities: The way we design and maintain them exerts a powerful influence on the quality of our lives.
As historic structures age, the challenges of preserving them and the neighborhoods they anchor multiply. Redevelopment may appear too complicated. Lacking experience, know-how, and even patience, some communities may throw up their hands and simply resort to the bulldozer as a quick fix solution to property abandonment.
There are approximately 86 Georgia Cities and Counties with Historic Preservation Ordinances in the State of Georgia and from a Historic Preservation standpoint ETL Constructions aim is to provide community leaders and individuals with alternatives to demolition in dealing with vacant, poorly maintained or abandoned buildings. Our team is armed with the tools, experience and knowledge to restore, preserve or rebuild a single structure or an entire community.
