Impact7G Acquires JLD Preservation Consulting, Expands Cultural Resource Management Services
June 21, 2022

JLD Preservation Consulting, a historic preservation and cultural resources consultancy, has been acquired by Johnston-based Impact7G, Inc. on Friday, June 17th, 2022. Impact7G is proud to combine resources and talent with JLD to offer our clients a single source of comprehensive environmental solutions.

JLD Preservation Consulting was established in 2018 Nashville, TN by Jaime L. Destefano. As Principal Architectural Historian, Jaime managed a diverse portfolio of projects related to Section 106 cultural resources reviews, large-scale surveys, and National Register nominations of central business districts, neighborhoods, and individual properties.

Among the many notable projects JLD has completed since its inception, several have recognized resources and historic districts significant among African American communities in the southeastern United States. JLD is nearing completion of a massive National Register nomination for what will likely become the nation’s largest African American neighborhood placed on the National Register. Other noteworthy projects include a statewide survey of healthcare facilities in Mississippi attributed to the Hill-Burton Act of 1946, and recently completed a survey and National Register Multiple Property Documentation Form of Mid-Century Modern commercial architecture in Topeka, Kansas.

JLD brings a wealth of experience in the establishment of local historic districts and design guidelines. Impact7G is also excited to significantly expand our grant and tax credit coordination services through JLD’s expertise in the Rehabilitation Tax Credit application process.

“We are thrilled to join Impact7G, which will allow us to continue our commitment to historic preservation and ensuring that our historic built environment endures,” Destefano said.
