historic preservation cultural resource compliance training

Federal Agencies and Tribal Governments

VCHP has worked with Federal agencies on a variety of historic preservation projects. We have completed historic contexts, National Register evaluations, Section 106 compliance documentation, HABS/HAER documentation and reports, historic structure reports, and interpretive displays. VCHP strives to design the project methodology for maximum value. For example, to streamline data analysis for a Department of Defense project, VCHP designed a building inventory form for a large National Register evaluation survey, which tied the form’s information cells to a project database. The database thus included information, such as a structure’s character-defining features, so that the client could use the database for day-to-day property management at the end of the survey. It also included buildings that were exempted under a Programmatic Agreement and was tied to a separate database that provided comments from the State Historic Preservation Officer so that the installation could easily track their history of undertakings and building eligibility status.

VCHP has also worked with several New Mexico Pueblos to assist them with Heritage Conservation projects, such as collecting historic photographs of their tribe from museums and research institutions from around the United States, or facilitating meetings of community elders to discuss topics of cultural interest. We have also helped with their Section 106 compliance needs, developed cultural resource policies and procedures, and assisted with historic preservation projects and ethnographic research. VCHP has also provided project management services for large, federally sponsored projects that require special experience and expertise in order for the tribe to acquire the information they need to enhance their quality of life.
