Extraction of minerals and aggregates often involves major ground disturbance over substantial areas, which can present significant challenges in managing the treatment of historic environment remains.
We believe that it is fundamental to develop a good long-term working relationship with our clients in this sector, as archaeological involvement often continues over several phases of work and quarrying projects may continue for several seasons.
Our team will work with you to prepare robust Cultural Heritage chapters for your Environmental Statements and negotiate cost effective mitigation strategies that will satisfy both you and the planning authorities. If you are required to undertake archaeological fieldwork, such as survey, evaluations or watching briefs, we will provide you with a rapid, cost-effective and professional service.
