Planning for the future through the delivery of new sustainable residential developments is one of the key challenges facing the UK construction industry today. Wessex Archaeology has a strong reputation for professionalism, innovation and collaboration within this industry which has been established through enduring relationships with many of the most prominent house builders and planning consultants working in the sector.

We work with our clients and the planning authorities from conception of a project to ensure that any requirement for work relating to the historic environment is targeted, design solution led, proportionate and appropriate. We help developers to make the best of their Natural Capital through the careful management of their heritage assets, by incorporating heritage and sense of place into the fabric of new developments and by promoting community and public engagement.
