*When I started at KH in 1994, I did not have any experience working on existing buildings. However since my first assigned project, I have always enjoyed working on existing buildings. I am still amazed to walk into a building and experience an existing structural framing method or layout that I have never seen before.* - Brian D. Wentz, PE CDT APT-RP, Director of Historic Preservation, Associate
