Historic Restorations require a high level of attention to detail. R. E. Lee is proud to work with the finest local craftsmen to insure these irreplaceable buildings are preserved for future generations.

Featured Projects

Experience: Historical

From our first project, “Kenwood”, which is now listed on the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Register of Historic Places, to renovating buildings on the Lawn at the University of Virginia (protected as a United States World Heritage Site), we have renovated buildings incorporating the highest level of stringent requirements for historical restoration. We understand the balance that must be achieved between preservation, modern functionality, and cost. Whether the goal of the project is a complete historical restoration or to simply incorporate modern systems into a historical structure, we offer the expertise and leadership to maximize the value of each project.
