PA SHPO Consultants List


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 twice a year and includes company name and contact information.  The lists are organized by services offered.  The current set of lists can be found here.

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.
