The Historic American Building Survey (HABS) and Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) are programs of the National Park Service aimed at developing a detailed record of historical buildings and structures in the United States. Hartgen prepares HABS/HAER documentation throughout the northeastern United States. Documentation packages usually include architectural drawings, archival-quality photography, historical research, and a written report. These services are typically sought for projects subject to compliance with historic preservation law or are sponsored by individuals and groups active in historic preservation.
