Section 106 Consulting

In order for federal agencies to meet their National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 (36 CFR 800) and Section 110 requirements, MASON has offered our consulting expertise to all branches of the military and several other federal agencies for over three decades.

This expertise has imbued us with a rich understanding of military properties, which in turn has allowed us to develop an extensive archive of building type information. Our work includes preparing evaluations of effect for Section 106 consultation letters and, in certain cases, developing the mitigation required by federal agencies that result from consultation with the historic partners. This can include everything from HABS/HAER documentation to historic context studies to additional interpretive materials.

Our historical architects also offer guidance on ways to avoid or minimize adverse effects on historic buildings by employing design modifications in line with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Our historical architects are well-versed in producing Historic Structures Reports, which are helpful tools for federal agencies planning renovations to historic buildings.
