For over 40 years Craig has committed his working life to the responsible treatment of our built historic resources. He has worked as a Heritage Building Consultant for over 25 years and has demonstrated a commitment to internationally recognized conservation standards. He has worked successfully with a broad range of clients, most commonly architects, engineers and government agencies, who require specialized knowledge. Craig is based in Kingston, Ontario. He is a graduate of the Civil Engineering Technology-Restoration Program (1979), St. Lawrence College, and the Technical Education Program (1993), Queens University, Kingston
Craig has worked on building types ranging from vernacular log and timber buildings on the prairies to the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. Typical projects encompass all aspects of historic building envelopes and historic building interiors. Examples include the Colonial Building in St. John's Newfoundland, the Chapel in the National Gallery, both the East Block, the Centre Block and West Block on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, the Capitol Theatre in Port Hope, Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa and Fort Henry in Kingston - most are National Historic Sites. Specific areas of expertise include the conservation of architectural wood and iron work, the conservation of building interiors, and the preparation of historic structures reports. Craig is recognized in Canada as the authority on the restoration and upgrade of historic windows of all types. He has published extensively and is a frequent lecturer in North America on this subject. Workshops have been delivered for the Federal Heritage Building Review Office, Parks Canada, The Historic Places Initiative, the Ontario Ministry of Culture and The Association for Preservation Technology International.
In recent years Craig has been involved as a faculty associate with the Willowbank School of Restoration Arts at Queenston, Ontario.
As an owner of a designated property in Barriefield Village, a Heritage Conservation District, and as a long serving member of Kingston Local Conservation Advisory Committee, Craig is aware of not only the challenges facing owners of historic buildings but also the many potential benefits. He relaxes by working in the garden and reading Canadian history.
