Archaeological Project Management – resulted in significant savings by reducing the timescales and costs of the pre-construction phase
Client: Abel Homes. Project: Residential Development in Watton, Norfolk.
Once we were appointed as the Archaeological Consultants our Project Management led and appointed the most relevant and cost-effective geophysical and trial trenching works for this development. Our consultant advised that additional trial trenching should be built into the contingency plans to prevent the later planned phase of work. This prevented project delays, additional works and removed the associated additional costs – because the need for later phase of work was removed.
This analysis and decision reduced the pre-construction by some 2 months – so proved to be a cost-saving exercise for the client.
