“We help buildings speak.” Battle Brown, founder of Manassas Consulting. 

Letting the building talk to you is one of the most difficult things to do with existing structures when managing its long term maintenance or considering a major restoration, renovation, rebuilding, re-provisioning, or addition.  Especially true in historic or preservation planning, our visual communications tools help the building speak.  Whether you need a simple blueprint style drawing with building surface texture showing mortar joints or other features, a full visual inspection of facades, or an asset management planning tool that integrates with your facilities maintenance system we can help. 

Whether you have contractors for a proposed project now or future generations of users and managers of your historic asset, we can help your building speak to them.
