Infrastructure and construction engineers from Laing O’Rourke gathered together at the Wessex Archaeology South office today to learn about all things archaeological.
The one-day CPD seminar focused on the role of archaeology within the planning process and featured presentations from WA specialists on a range of topics including geophysical surveys and historic building recording as well as a concise dash through time, from the Palaeolithic to modern day! A highlight was the session on community engagement for construction schemes delivered by our Chief Executive Chris Brayne, which used our Longforth Farm outreach project as a case study.
The day was rounded off by an interesting presentation on identifying and managing ecological constraints from Phil Lomax, Principal Ecologist with our partner organisation Thomson Ecology.
This course was specifically designed to suit the CPD needs of the Laing O’Rourke team. To discuss the ways in which we can support your organisation please contact us.
