Whether you need to identify and evaluate a scatter of prehistoric stone tools, document a historic homestead, evaluate historic bridges and canals, or conduct ethnographic research with tribes and other groups to identify traditional cultural properties, SWCA’s cultural resource management (CRM) services help you recognize, assess, and preserve cultural resources while avoiding or minimizing their impacts.
Our highly skilled cultural resource specialists assist with the often complicated processes necessary for compliance with cultural resource laws and regulations. We meet the requirements of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines and hold numerous federal and state permits that let us work throughout the country. We have specialized training in all aspects of CRM, including archaeology, historic preservation, cultural resources compliance monitoring, and tribal consultation/ethnography — all of which are largely driven by the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).
With local experience and strong relationships with agency archaeologists and SHPOs, we understand the specifics of how the regulatory process works in a particular geographic area and can provide you with effective support and tailored guidance.
