Archaeology and Cultural Heritage

Archaeology and Cultural Heritage

Conserving and Enhancing the Historic Environment is a core principle of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). As a Registered Organisation of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists, we have the recognition and professional capability to ensure you are provided with comprehensive Historic Environment expertise throughout the whole planning process.

Our established team has substantial experience and a wide ranging portfolio of archaeological and cultural heritage work. UK wide project experience spans the Energy, Utilities, Infrastructure, Mining, Residential and Regeneration sectors.

We undertake heritage projects of every kind throughout the UK and overseas, from individual home extensions to major infrastructure developments including pipelines, road and rail links.

Whether you're building a new home, landscaping a leisure park or constructing an airport terminal, we will provide the expertise you need to keep your project moving forward.

The Consultancy team offer a full suite of products including scoping reports, constraints reports, impact assessments, heritage statements, desk based assessments, tall building assessments, conservation advice and expert witness.
