Environmental Impact Assessments
Change in the modern world inevitably has an impact on the historic environment. Protecting our cultural heritage through responsible project design is fundamental to modern developement: environmental impact assessments (EIAs) help to identify the nature and magnitude of likely impacts on sensitive cultural heritage, thereby informing mitigation or project design.
Our consultants have long experience in the preparation of EIAs for infrastructural development, meaning that the impact of proposed construction can be measured in a reliable way. Our decades of experience in archaeological mitigation mean that we are experts in the realistic assessment of impact and in the preparation of recommendations for proportionate responses.
Our consultants work closely with project design teams to ensure that risks to the historic environment are identified as early as possible, with setting as well as physical impacts considered.
