Gorman & Company has been preserving significant historic buildings for more than three decades. During that time Gorman & Company has become recognized as a national leader in historic preservation.
The company has been awarded many distinctions including the National Trust for Historic Preservation / HUD Secretary’s top award for Excellence in Historic Preservation. Often historic buildings, centrally-positioned in a downtown or a neighborhood, are threatened because they have outlived their original use. They often lose their prior useful purpose and become costly burdens for local communities. Gorman & Company specializes in preserving these buildings, often turning them from community liabilities to significant community assets.
