Project Planning and Cultural Resources
Reduce Costs and Delays by Identifying Cultural Resources Early in Project Design

A difficult problem facing project managers is the uncertainty surrounding regulatory clearance for archaeological sites. Unexpected discovery of archaeological sites can result in project delays and unanticipated costs.  Often the ultimate cost and length of delay is not known until all archaeological sites within a project area are identified and evaluated through archaeological testing. These unknowns can make it difficult to stay within project budgets and meet project deadlines. 

By consulting with an archaeologist early in the project design phase, potential pitfalls may be averted.  If archaeological sites are known to exist, or if there is a high probability that archaeological sites may be present within your project area, it may be possible to modify the project design in ways that minimize the cost and time required to gain regulatory clearance.  Identifying archaeological sites before acquiring  property, right-of-ways, and permits may save time and money.
