Texas state law says that land under construction paid for by public funds must have an archeological survey before building can proceed. LCA Environmental, Inc. provides consulting and support in meeting this requirement.
On occasion construction sites near historic structures, along with demolition of some buildings and new construction, may turn up unknown artifacts of great importance. The site is then at risk that archaeological resources might be destroyed without adequate documentation, and risks that archaeological work might cause delays to the construction schedule. Managing these risks requires an unusual level of partnership between the construction and archaeological teams. LCA works to identify and protect artifacts through the use of Artifacts Protection Detectors.
