Historic Building Moving and Raising
Historic preservation has always been our main specialty. Payne Construction Services Inc. has raised and moved some of the oldest buildings and homes in the country, both wood-framed and masonry. We take great pleasure knowing that we are able to help preserve historic buildings and structures for future generations to appreciate and experience them for years to come.
Structural moving has been around for hundreds of years and is a great way to preserve historic buildings. With our experience, knowledge, and technology, our building movers can continue to do our part to save these historical monuments. In the past, we have successfully moved buildings that date back to the mid-1600s and 1700s, including their historic fireplaces and chimneys, without damaging the structures. In fact, we have relocated the first and second-oldest remaining Quaker meeting houses in the U.S. as well as one of the oldest remaining grist mills in the U.S. Our building movers have also successfully moved historic churches, commercial buildings, schools, farms, barns, and houses.
Payne is ready to make your building moving happen, on time and on budget. Contact us today with questions or to get the process started.
