Archaeology & Heritage

Cultural Heritage includes aspects such as archaeology, historic buildings, designed landscapes, historical connections, ethnicity, craft activities, customs and traditions, belief systems and sacred space.

Cultural Heritage plays a powerful role in many communities, and any development or regeneration scheme requires conservation-based, informed analysis of the historic environment, and appropriate management plans for sustainability. The recording and retention of historic features and integration with public realm contribute to the potential success of new developments.

International conventions require tangible and intangible cultural heritage to be assessed and protected as part of economic development,
infrastructure, commercial and construction projects. SLR has heritage expertise in working with international agencies, multi-national companies, diverse cultures and ethnic groups and can assist with concept design, risk awareness, mediation, and damage prevention.
