We undertake all forms of Consultancy work, ranging from desk-based assessments and EIA's through to public inquiries.
Over the last two decades we have conducted thousands of watching briefs, evaluations and excavations across Britain and Ireland. Excavations include large-scale infrastructure and utilities work. We work in all environments including urban and green field developments. Our clients are varied and work across housing, roads infrastructure, pipeline construction and windfarm development. As well as carrying out the actual on-site work our team are incredibly experienced in the creation of WSIs and liaising with local curators.
Built Heritage, Survey and Geomatics
We have extensive experience of recording, analysing and providing advice on buildings and the historic environment. We are experts at writing Conservation Management Plans. We also offer a wide range of surveying services: from walkover surveys to millimetre-resolution laser scans.
We have an extensive in-house geophysical survey team. We routinely undertake many geophysical surveys across Britain and Ireland and offer the full range of services, including magnatometry, resistivity and ground penetrating-radar.
We are one of the few companies to provide a comprehensive post-excavation service. We have a dedicated team to take an archaeological project from initial project design and management through assessment and analyses of sediments, bio-materials and artefacts, to interpretation, reporting and publication. Our in-house expertise includes sedimentology, soil micromorphology, soil chemistry, dendrochronology, palaeobotany, palynology, faunal analysis, osteoarchaeology, artefact conservation and analysis, building materials and lithics.
We have our own conservation laboratories - one of the few in the UK and Ireland - offering immediate practical conservation and artefact care for archaeological material, ethnographic artefacts and social history collections. We undertake on-site conservation and recovery; freeze drying of waterlogged woods; conservation of artefacts and materials; x-radiography and cleaning and stabilisation of public art, monuments and memorials.
