What we do


Recognizing and protecting historical sites

Parametrix guides our clients through identification, documentation, monitoring, and preservation of historical sites and properties in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act. We determine the historic significance of bridges, buildings, landscapes, districts, and traditional cultural properties and develop documentation to protect those properties working with state and tribal historic preservation offices. Our experience includes directing archival research, historic building inventories, and historic bridge evaluations; documenting historic districts and acequias; and developing historic contexts.

South Valley Water System
Bernalillo County, New Mexico

Client: Bernalillo County Public Works Division

Over a span of nearly 10 years, Parametrix worked on the multi-phase expansion of the South Valley Water System. It involved extensive public involvement, with a series of public and citizen advisory group meetings. The project was funded in phases, so a memorandum of understanding was negotiated with the New Mexico SHPO allowing archaeological and historic built environment surveys and reporting to be completed as the detailed system designs were developed. Parametrix documented and evaluated hundreds of historic buildings, acequias, and archaeological sites—as well as assessed effects to several potential historic districts.
