Video: Climate resiliency at Historic New England

Oct 6, 2021

Historic New England factors the increasing threat of climate change into its plans to preserve historic properties. In the video below, Team Leader for Property Care Ben Haavik speaks about what we have learned about climate resiliency, how climate change affects our preservation work, and what we are doing to prevent potential damage to historic buildings and landscapes.

Moving forward

Climate resiliency influences the decision-making at all levels of Historic New England’s property care work. We will continue to publish and share white papers, and develop new case studies and research that will guide best practices for preservation professionals and the general public.
