Archaeology is about more than just digging.
Managing the historic environment, whether through the planning process, research or community outreach, is a challenge that demands a diverse range of skills. Our experienced team is equipped to advise you on all stages of a heritage-related project, from design to delivery.
If you need to fulfil a planning condition related to the historic environment, our expert team can guide you through the process of designing a survey, evaluation or excavation that deals with your development requirements appropriately and effectively.
Managing the archaeological process
As one of the best-equipped archaeological units in the UK, we are uniquely placed to carry complex projects through to completion, supported by ISO-9001 standards of project management.
Responding to your needs
Our team is able to respond quickly and effectively to archaeological discoveries, meaning that where development and heritage meet, a professional and ethical solution can be arrived at efficiently. Our capacity to respond at short notice has been reflected in the award of several long-standing call-off contracts with Historic Scotland.
