Our Archaeology and Heritage team has one of the strongest reputations in the industry for producing fit-for-purpose solutions of the highest quality.
Our collective experience spans decades, and this is reflected in the high standard of our work and the precision and reliability of our advice.
We offer expertise in the assessment and management of Aboriginal cultural heritage and archaeology, historical archaeology, and also built heritage. This means that we provide a holistic service that covers all aspects of the management and assessment of both archaeology and heritage.
The services we offer range from preliminary strategic advice to full and comprehensive heritage and archaeological assessment for projects ranging from localised residential development to major infrastructure projects.
Aboriginal Archaeology and Cultural Heritage
Our services encompass Aboriginal cultural heritage management, archaeological assessments and the implementation of post-approval requirements and compliance. We provide tailored, pragmatic heritage management advice to manage risk, and develop innovative cultural heritage solutions and management strategies.
Projects are delivered to meet both state and commonwealth legislative requirements and adhere to all codes of practice, guidelines, and requirements. Collaborative consultation with stakeholders is important. Skilled archaeologists and heritage consultants facilitate positive engagement between proponents, Aboriginal people, Traditional Owners, Registered Aboriginal Parties, and regulators. Our well-designed archaeological surveys and thorough assessments integrate Aboriginal stakeholder input with relevant legislative requirements.
We work in both urban and rural/remote contexts and across the full gamut of project types. These include State Significant Development and State Significant Infrastructure projects, sustainable development and renewable projects, and corporate social responsibility initiatives.
We offer expert heritage consultancy services for projects of all sizes across Australia. We undertake major State Significant Development or Infrastructure projects in both urban and rural contexts.
Holding Heritage NSW / Heritage Council Archaeological Excavation Director credentials enables archaeological investigation of both state and locally significant archaeological sites. In addition, our
Historical Archaeology professionals are members of both Australian Association of Consulting Archaeologists Inc. (AACAI) and Australia ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites).
We conduct all aspects of archaeological excavation (test excavations, archaeological monitoring, open area excavation, etc.) and can provide on-call archaeologists during construction programs.
Well written documentation addresses all statutory requirements, ensuring timely permit approvals/endorsements from the Heritage Council.
Natural heritage includes those aspects of the natural environment that have significance due to their aesthetic, scientific, social or cultural values.
