Reporting and documentation is an important part of the restoration process that is often not given due attention. Since we assign success criteria to each project, documentation is extremely important since it allows us to determine if we’ve met specific project goals.
Additionally, Golden Hour strives to produce a written component of the project-course materials to allow for visual learners to have access to some of the verbal material. We hope our publications travel far and wide so they can be used as models for additional site-specific information in other restoration projects. Below are some of our publications divided into a few categories: general restoration planning, project-specific restoration, and Golden Hour communications. We ask that you do let us know if you’re using these materials so we can catalog their use, additionally we might be able to customize them for your specific project/need.
