Historic Structure Surveys


Environmental Services, Inc 

Environmental Services, Inc. (ESI) cultural resource professionals include architectural historians and historians who have conducted historic resource surveys ranging from single structure evaluations to large 10,000+ building inventories for city and county governments.

This group has completed Historic American Building Survey (HABS) and Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) documentation and has received National Register nomination for historic structures determined to be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historical Places.

An architectural survey that ESI typically performs documents buildings and structures over 50 year of age within an area of potential effect as defined by the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), other local ordinance or sometimes by municipalities that are interested in documenting their cultural heritage.

Although referred to as “architectural" a survey of historic properties looks beyond buildings to include all visible aspects of the built environment that when combined form our historic fabric. Properties may include cemeteries, bridges, dams, ships, windmills, silos, monuments, roadways, parks and gardens.

When we perform an architectural survey, we collect information on the historic property including the condition, integrity, form of the structure, interior and ancillary features, as well as background research that may include information on the builder, past occupants, and purpose/function of the structure.

Once historic properties have been identified as significant through the survey process, ESI will perform documentation of a structure, which may include a variety of activities ranging from photographing the significant features of the resource to creating measured drawings to construction a detailed history of the property through historic documents. Structures that are deemed potentially eligible, or eligible, are documented using the standards developed by the HABS/HAER.

*ESI partners with select engineering and surveying firms in North Carolina for engineering and survey projects.
