With experience on hundreds of projects, E2PM’s Cultural Resource Management (CRM) team know the “ins-and-outs” of the historic preservation and cultural resources industries and bring that experience to every client and project. From localized cellular telecommunications facilities to large-scale multi-state corridors to properties located in local historic districts, E2PM has the knowledge and experience to guide a project to successful resolution no matter the regulatory environment.
