Commonwealth Preservation Group

Commonwealth Preservation Group (CPG) is a small woman and minority-owned business established in 2004.  CPG provides preservation planning and design, historic rehabilitation tax credit, and historic resource and National Register nomination consulting services.  CPG has worked with homeowners, architects, historical societies, developers, religious institutions, and federal, state and local government to guide proper rehabilitation of historic buildings, identify and survey historic resources, ensure compliance with appropriate state and Federal regulations, and to promote sound preservation planning.  CPG performs work throughout the country.  To date, CPG has consulted on over 500 preservation projects to ensure compliance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.  In addition, CPG has completed over 100 historic district and individual nominations for properties listed on state historic registers and the National Register of Historic Places; this designation not only provides state and federal recognition of historic resources, but also opens the door to the availability of historic tax credits for contributing buildings.  Paige and Marcus Pollard are the company owners, and are personally involved in each project that the firm undertakes.  They meet the US Department of the Interior’s Professional Qualification Standards for History, Architectural History and Historic Architecture.

Commonwealth Preservation Group strives to balance historic preservation considerations with modern requirements imposed by codes, technology and user needs for the benefit of our clients and their historic properties.
