Cultural Resources Management
Our firm offers a full range of cultural resources management services for projects that involve historic preservation issues. These include projects requiring compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, as well as additional federal, state, and local municipal regulations relating to historic preservation.
Our services for archaeology and historic structures include preliminary assessments and survey (Phase I), evaluation according to National Register of Historic Places criteria (Phase II), and mitigation measures, including archaeological data recovery and HABS/HAER recording (Phase III). During all project stages, Gannett Fleming works closely with clients, State Historic Preservation Officers, local historical commissions, and other review agencies to ensure that preservation and economic considerations, such as project design and avoidance measures, are properly addressed.
Our staff is experienced with all phases of cultural resources management. Specialists on staff include historians, archaeologists, and architectural historians who meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualification standards. We also provide personnel skilled in photography, scale-drawing documentation, geomorphology, and soils analysis. Our multidisciplinary cultural resources team can draw on Gannett Fleming’s expertise in NEPA and environmental management, planning, transportation, and land development to arrive at the best solutions for any type of undertaking.
We can also employ the latest geographic information system technology to predict archaeological site occurrences, analyze data, and present findings to clients and the public. Our staff is ready to assist in exploring design alternatives for a variety of project types, as well as developing and executing innovative mitigation strategies, if necessary.
