PA SHPO Consultants List

| 1 Comment

The Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office has released an updated and revised Consultants List.

PA SHPO maintains the Consultants List as a resource for our constituents interested in hiring a professional consultant or architect to assist them with historic preservation projects involving PA SHPO and National Park Service programs and project review under the Pennsylvania History Code and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, as amended.

This list is updated quarterly and includes company names, primary contacts, contact information, and a general list of the services they offer.   Starting January 2017, the Consultant List will be downloaded from Mail Chimp during the first week of each quarter of the calendar year and provided to PA SHPO staff and PHMC’s webmaster to upload to our website.  The current Consultant List can be found at

**Please note that the list on the PHMC website is searchable.  To scroll forward or backward throughout the list, there is a very, very small dot in the bottom right corner under the columns for state.  The best way to find the arrow is to hover your mouse over that area and watch for the arrow to turn to a hand and then click.  We are aware that the scroll arrows are a problem and working to improve this feature.

Consultants and architects interested in being included must sign up for the Consultants List or email the PA SHPO. For more information about the PA SHPO and the Consultants List, please visit our website.  PA SHPO does not request or require that resumes, work samples, certifications, etc. be submitted to be included on the Consultants List.

Please note that the PA SHPO does not request proof of qualifications or professional licensure, and inclusion on this list does not constitute the endorsement of companies or work products by PA SHPO, PHMC, or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Consultants’ and architects’ experience and fees vary widely.

We strongly recommend that you solicit work proposals and examine the qualifications and experience of several consultants or architects, including recent examples of completed work, before contracting.
