The National Archives has issued a new guide to guide renovators on what to look for when they’re working on the restoration of historic buildings.
The guide is the result of the National Park Service’s partnership with the American Architectural Association (ABA) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP).
It includes materials used for building construction, architectural design, structural engineering, architectural renovation and structural engineering solutions.
ABA and NTHP will offer the guide to a select group of architects and engineers, including a new group of “architects and structural engineers” who will work with the National Archives and Historic Preservation Service (NARA) to build a database of restoration projects.
NARA will use the database to offer information on what projects to look out for and the best ways to renovate existing buildings.
A new guide was also released on Tuesday with guidance for renovators who want to get a handle on building materials used during the Civil War.
“The goal of this guide is to help restore, preserve and preserve the buildings and the historic significance they once had in America,” said the guide, which was written by NARA’s David Tischler.
While the guide offers general guidance, it also gives guidance for each building in the US that was built during the civil war, such as its exterior, interior, floors, windows and doors.
Some of the material used in the construction of historic structures was sourced from abroad, according to the guide.
For example, the guide provides guidance on the construction materials used to build the Civilian Conservation Corps headquarters in the city of New Orleans, which once housed the US Civil War’s Army, Navy and Air Force.
The guide also provides guidance for the buildings that were destroyed during the war, including the New Orleans Civilian Cemetery, where thousands of Confederate soldiers are buried.
It also details the materials used in building a cemetery at Fort Sumter, Georgia, the site of the US’ largest military installation.NARA also provides a guide for renovating the historic houses in New York City and Chicago.
The agency said it was working to update the guide with additional information from the ABA and the NTHP.
