Archaeological Impact & Desk Based Assessment
An Archaeological Desk Based Assessment Report or Archaeological Impact Assessment Report is often the first element of archaeological involvement in a development project.
Primarily a requirement at project design phase, it is at this stage that only the provision of the most accurate and well researched information will be of value in helping to minimise the impact that archaeology may have on a development projects and vice versa and managing risk. The assessment can also form the basis of an Archaeological Programme of Works which will outline the most effective steps to mitigate against any potential archaeological issues which may arise.
Farrimond MacManus Ltd desktop survey combines Northern Ireland and Ireland government held archaeological GIS databases, historic archive and map sources and open source mapping integrated into industry standard GIS packages to provide a full analysis of the archaeological potential of your development. Our ability to integrate digital design drawings into our GIS allows us to fully assess the archaeological impact of the project.
We will liaise with client and heritage authorities to ensure our well developed archaeological mitigation strategies meet all regulatory standards and requirements.
