Geophysical survey can offer the best range of techniques to highlight the presence of archaeological remains without having to disturb the ground within proposed development sites. Surveying in this manner can be a cost-effective way of identifying cultural heritage issues before or after planning applications are made. Our experienced geophysicists can also assist in the search for other types of sub-surface activities, including mineshafts or workings, graves and burial vaults, bomb shelters and utility tracing.
We offer a range of services and techniques to commercial and research clients. These include magnetic surveys, radio frequency location and resistivity surveys. We offer geophysical services throughout Scotland, UK and Europe and will tailor a cost-effective investigation strategy to your specific requirements using the latest equipment and current best practices and guidelines.
