Project Management

CSCS and CHAS logos

Archaeology South-East has a highly experienced project management and pre-works documentation team, able to guide your project through to a successful conclusion.  All of our project managers have had extensive experience of running fieldwork projects prior to managing and all are Members of the Institute for Archaeologists (MIfA), our professional body.

Our managers and staff have built an excellent working relationship with the archaeological monitors for the various planning authorities and statutory bodies under which we work.  A relationship based on the quality of our work and our ability to deliver.

The role of our Project Managers is to manage the delivery of a safe, quality service and product at a competitive price.

Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI)

The submission of a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) prior to the commencement of fieldwork is required by planning authorities and statutory bodies.  The WSI sets out the reasons why the work is being undertaken, the archaeological background and research aims and the methodology by which the fieldwork and reporting will be carried out.  The WSI then becomes a planning document and the archaeological contractor and client are bound to the methodology which it describes.

Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS)

Prior to the commencement of works Archaeology South-East produces a Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS) which outlines the sites conditions, the method by which we will be working, an assessment of the risks involved in that work and means by which those risks can be reduced or eliminated.  The document is further updated by our site staff and/or project manager if circumstances change on site.  RAMS are produced by the lead Projects Manager and checked by another before being issued.  Archaeology South-East is an approved contractor under the Contractor Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and all of our staff are confirmed as being appropriate trained to work on construction sites through the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).
