ESI provides the following services in our Archaeology Services Division:
ESI’s team advises clients of potential requirements for cultural resource studies early on in the project, which minimizes project delays. We also help our clients fully understand all of their options when cultural resources are identified.
ESI meets all municipal, state and federal requirements for providing reports and conducting cultural resource assessments (CRA) such as Phase I cultural resource, archaeology surveys, historic archaeology, historic surveys, archaeology preservation plans, site significance testing, and site mitigation.
Depending on permitting requirements, our reports are submitted to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE), or other federal or county government agencies for review. All sites are assessed for significance in terms of eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places pursuant to requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act (1966).
Our additional services include underwater archaeology, underwater remote sensing, architectural evaluations, literature reviews, background and archival research, development of research designs, data recovery, preparation of artifacts for curators and customized public displays.
*ESI partners with select engineering and surveying firms in North Carolina for engineering and survey projects.
