Hardlines Design Company (HDC) specializes in historic preservation architecture, restorations, adaptive reuses and rehabilitations of historic buildings. Since 1990, Hardlines Design Company has provided extensive historical architecture services to federal agencies such as the Air Force, Navy, Corps of Engineers, National Park Service, Department of Agriculture, and NASA as well as to state agencies such as the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT).
HDC is known for the quality of our technical reports. HDC staff assisted with the creation of the ODOT cultural resources manual and was tapped to edit all technical reports for the Cleveland Innerbelt study after impressing the client with the user-friendliness and clarity of the CRM report. HDC staff have also assisted other companies with producing report text for large-scale studies, including creating contexts for a statewide GIS predictive model for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation under contract to AECOM.
