About Tim Kelley Consulting

Tim Kelley Consulting is a full service Historical Resources and City Planning consulting firm, certified as approved Historic Resource Evaluation (HRE) consultants by the San Francisco Planning Department. In addition to helping property owners, architects, and developers navigate historical and environmental reviews, we conduct cultural and historic resource surveys, historic structure reports, and Section 106 evaluations. We can guide you through the Planning maze for garage additions, window replacements, dwelling unit removals, changes of use, or whatever your project requires.

If you are planning to submit a Historic Resource Review, either for a specific project or to investigate the historic status of your property, give us a call. We can help. We know the process and we're fast and dependable. Tim Kelley Consulting has written hundreds of Historic Resource Evaluations and other historic reports for all sorts of projects in San Francisco, large and small—from window replacements to demolitions, garage additions, vertical additions, conversions. You name it, we've done it.

We can deliver what you need—on time and on budget. And when we're working for you, we're on your side. You get reliable, confidential information and advice, based on facts—not historical fiction.


The firm consists of founder Tim Kelley and two associates. Mr. Kelley served five terms as President of the San Francisco Landmarks Board from 2000 until 2006, and is experienced in the public process involving historic resources, as well as the often contentious atmosphere of that process. As Board President and as a consultant, he has constantly advocated a reasoned and balanced consideration of historic preservation issues and other important public values.

Tim Kelley Consulting meets the Secretary of the Interior's Professional Qualification Standards in Architectural History.
