When Dovetail opened its doors in June 2005, our goals were to conduct exemplary historic preservation services, treat our staff well, and provide our clients with incredible service through excellent communication and project diligence. We also recognized that one of the most important things we could offer our clients was access to disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) credits as a woman-owned company. Over the years, we have become DBE certified in nine states through various transportation agencies (from north to south): New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. We are also certified with numerous independent agencies including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, Amtrak, and more (see our Certifications tab for a full roster).

We are beyond thrilled to announce that Dovetail was recently approved as a Federally certified Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) through the Small Business Administration. This new certification will provide additional benefits to our clients who perform work at the federal level. Whether it is seeking archaeological services, creating historic preservation plans, or working with a State Historic Preservation Office or the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, let Dovetail help meet your preservation needs.

We will continue to seek opportunities to create new ways to help our clients as we grow. Please give us a call at 540-899-9170 or email me ([email protected]) if you want to hear more about our certifications or our services. We’d love to be part of your project!

Until next time,

Kerri S. Barile, President
