All surveys need to consider both the buried and built heritage of a site, irrespective of whether there is an obvious focus within a project. We commit to including this as part of the surveys that we provide our clients. 

Historic Landscape Characterisation

Historic Characterisation is the process of defining areas of land into categories that allow us to understand current and past landuses. It aids in the management of the landscape and aids decision making about future changes to be considered. The characterisation may be provided in the form of an interactive map or as a document with descriptions and illustrative drawings and maps.

Landscape Surveys

Mitigating the impact of proposals on settings of designed sites and landscapes is an iterative process best undertaken within a multidisciplinary team. As part of this integrated approach our in-house specialists provide ecology and landscape and visual impact surveys, specifically in identifying trees and hedgerows species of historic or ecological interest. Working in this inter-disciplinary way we can pick up issues at survey stage so that they can be integrated at the earliest possible stage of work.

Archaeological Surveys

Archaeological and architectural features are not always visible or obvious. Surveys and detailed recording are utilised to highlight the presence of buried or hidden features. This allows informed decisions to be made about appropriate management of the entire heritage asset, groups of assets and settings.
