This report explores the history and thought process behind an idea for a historical restoration company based out of San Francisco, California. This is a vital service for both building owners and the public, as historical buildings with deferred maintenance pose a threat to the lives and safety of civilians in the streets below. The city of San Francisco recognized that historical buildings may pose a threat to public safety and recently put an ordinance in place to mandate inspections and repairs of these buildings. There seems to be a gap between firms that profess the ability to assign qualified individuals to perform façade inspections and the actual result that comes from these inspections. A highly experienced team has been put together to run this business, and this report covers the logistics of how this business will operate. Based upon industry leaders’ opinions in the niche, the author’s own experience in the niche, as well as financial data reviewed by a finance major, this plan seems to be viable for a historical restoration business offering consulting and construction management services.
