P 469.259.4214

As a sixth-generation Texan, from an early age, Justin was aware of his family’s deep connection and pride to their humble corner of the world. That sense of place and love of history and architecture led him to pursue historic preservation. Justin works with buildings that are a tangible link to the past and tell a community’s collective story.

Justin has over 13 years of experience with preserving and rehabilitating historic buildings, new construction, and master planning. His diverse portfolio includes civic, education, religious, hospitality, commercial, office, museums, parks, and residential projects. He also has experience with historic preservation tax credits, conditions assessments, historic finishes, historic resources surveys, National Register of Historic Places, Historic American Building Survey (HABS) documentation, and archival research.

He is actively involved in the community and volunteers for various local and state-wide non-profits where he leads committees and special projects. He also donates his professional expertise through pro bono preservation and research-related services and projects. An example of his service includes leading a Preservation Dallas research team to document 133 historic schools in the Dallas Independent School District (DISD).

What is your favorite building or landmark?

Little-Chapel-in-the Woods on the campus of Texas Women’s University exemplifies Texas Regionalism and is a masterpiece of architect O’Neil Ford. It is my favorite Texas building by my favorite Texas architect. In some part, they both led me to where I am today as a preservation architect.
