Large scale building projects such as hospitals inevitably involve archaeological and building survey especially in such historically rich and fragile environments such as Orkney, Shetland and Northern Scotland.
ORCA has been increasingly requested by clients to be involved from an early stage in the planning cycle for such projects across the North of Scotland and has developed an approach that is both sensitive to client commercial requirements and the historic environment.
ORCA works with clients both in the office and on the ground to provide assistance and solutions in this increasingly complex area of planning. One of our latest large scale projects involved a watching brief at the Scapa Health Centre, Kirkwall Orkney. See our blog for more details.
