Test trenches, archaeological monitoring and rescue excavations
To conduct an archaeological field evaluation, we excavate thin test trenches and document the structures and finds that appear. Depending on the affected area, such preliminary research can be carried out within a matter of days.
Based on this preliminary research it can then be decided whether alternative plans are in order, an archaeological excavation is required or further heritage protection measures are necessary. The results of the preliminary research form a decisive basis for the cost calculation and conceptualisation of a possible archaeological excavation.
When archaeological finds or other indications of soil heritage are present, preliminary research and an independent professional opinion of the situation are important. We ensure planning security!
Large scale excavations • urban excavations • large scale projects
You need a competent partner in the execution of archaeological measures?
Independently of which archaeological period is concerned, the scale of your projects and where and when you are planning to build, we execute an excavation project that is customized entirely to your individual requirements. Whether it is a small scale excavation in a rural area, a linear excavation along a marked-out construction site or a large scale building project in a city centre, we will find a solution.
Rescue excavations • emergency recovery • construction supervision
Depending on the acuteness of archaeological measures, we carry out our work before the construction, during, or a combination of both.
If the archaeological measures are planned early on, building delay can be significantly reduced or even avoided. Often archaeological measures become necessary for active building projects. Through a professional coordination of the cooperation with construction firms, a frictionless integration of the investigations into the building project is possible. Moreover, our modern documentation techniques help shorten the time needed on-site. Especially for large scale projects in Medieval- to Modern Era urban centres, our methodology offers clear advantages. Thus, construction delays can be reduced also for excavations contemporaneous to the building project.
We work on the intersection between the authorities and the building contractor. Reconciling the interests of both sides is our goal. We are convinced that a satisfying solution for all involved can be found!
