Knowing "how" is important, but so is knowing "why".  This comes from a combination of experience and exploration, knowledge and judgment.  We build on our foundation of proven performance by continually looking at new possibilities and communicating ideas effectively.  We have been growing this expertise since 1956.

Historic Preservation

Preservation of historic buildings has always been important to Guttmann & Blaevoet and we have extensive experience with their renovation.  Fundamentally, we appreciate the opportunity to be champions of protecting places that tell stories of our past.  Practically, we understand that replacement or upgrade of systems in historic buildings requires sensitivity to respecting the historic fabric of the building.  At the same time, meeting new seismic and life safety codes as well as modern standards for occupant comfort, indoor air quality and energy efficiency adds significant challenge and requires exceptional creativity to successfully rejuvenate historic structures.
