Historic Preservation

With over 15 years of historic project experience, our firm’s appreciation for historic preservation and conservation continues to be a guiding principle and special area of interest for McMillan Pazdan Smith.  Clients include educational institutions, city and county governments and individuals who wish to preserve the history and heritage of the past, while addressing the financial, cultural and technological needs for a building’s modern use.

We understand that a specific site may represent significant historic context to a community and a new design must appreciate the past while looking into the future.  The firm’s portfolio of various building types includes significant historic restoration and preservation credentials, including Wofford College’s Old Main Building and Walker Hall for the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind, exemplifying a commitment to preserving the stature of a building’s character, regardless of time and place.
