Our innovative and multi-disciplinary approach to meeting archaeological requirements both at the pre-development planning stage of a project through to development stage mitigation gives us the ability to offer services which are both cost and time efficient.

Primarily a requirement at project design phase, it is at this stage that only the provision of the most accurate and well researched information will be of value in helping to minimise the impact that archaeology may have on a development projects and vice versa and managing risk. The assessment can also form the basis of an Archaeological Programme of Works which will outline the most effective steps to mitigate against any potential archaeological issues which may arise.

read more › The archaeological Impact Assessment may identify an archaeological monument or areas of archaeological potential within a development's boundaries. Alternatively the heritage authorities may request further information under PPS6 BH3 (Northern Ireland) or under the National Monuments Act (Republic of Ireland) before allowing a development planning application to proceed. Further information as to the extent of any known archaeology or potential archaeological remains may be evaluated by a programme of test trenching which involves the excavation of a series of well targeted machine cut trenches within the development area to establish the existence or non existence of archaeological deposits.

We will provide you with fully qualified Department Of Envirnment: Historic Environment Division (DOE:HED)/ Department of Environment Heritage and Local Goverment licensed archaeologists who will monitor ground disturbance works with the aim to identifying newly uncovered archaeological deposits.

Post excavation archaeological reporting is the process by which a full understanding of the archaeological remains can be preserved for the future. It is also an integral part of the archaeological planning conditions placed upon a development should excavation necessitate. We employ up to date techniques and methodologies to provide a high standard of report production in a cost effective and timely manner. Upon submission of the relevant excavation report the imposed planning condition may be considered as fully complied with and be signed off by the relevant planning authority.

Industrial Heritage sites are afforded the same planning requirements under Planning Policy PPS6 as those attibuted to other archaeological sites and monuments. An industrial heritage survey is often required as part of the planning application process as a means of meeting planning policy requirements. FarrimondMacManus Ltd have a broad range of experience in providing accurate and detailed industrial heritage surveys to meet the necessary planning requirements and aid in the integration of those buildings and site listed as being of Industrial Heritage into the development project.

Our 3D visualisation and modelling services provide an opportunity to. Our 3D surveys allow us the unique ability to capture historic buildings and archaeological monuments as they survive at any one moment in time, whether this is an upstanding feature or the remains of a buried archaeological monument discovered in the course of archaeological excavation.

Based in Belfast and Derry we employ dedicated land and building surveyors throughout Northern Ireland who are highly committed to providing a professional level of service with an emphasis on detail and accuracy at all levels. Our senior survey managers are RICS / SCSI affiliated ensuring an assured quality of survey.

read more › The production of a high quality and accurate plan or topographic survey detailing the scope, extent and nature of a development area prior to development represents the basis upon which project can be assessed, planned and subsequently designed. The plan will most likely be an essential part of the whole project life-cycle and must therefore be of an appropriate accuracy and detail. Wherever possible FarrimondMacManus Ltd will encourage the client's involvement in the production of survey specifications.

read more › There is increasing demand for a means of recording existing upstanding buildings. Laser scanning will provide millimetre accuracy and resolution previously not capable with traditional building survey techniques. The use of Laser Scanning technology allows us to collect 3D geometric or "as built" information as a series of x-y-z points collected as a "point cloud" with data collection rates of up to 50,000 points per second with an accuracy of up to 4mm. This allows for the complete as built survey of complex buildings to be carried out within a matter of days as supposed to several weeks, with the added advantage that the information is usable as soon as the data is collected.

read more › BIM can be applied to not just new build construction but is equally relevant to building renovations and re-fits providing an integrated platform to share building data with all project partners and designers. As a BIM project is developed within a 3D environment our 3D laser scan surveys can integrate seamlessly within industry standard BIM software. Our well developed survey work flow and collaborative approach to BIM modelling allows us to utilise millimeter accurate survey data to develop a robust and data rich building information model which can provide a solid platform for our client's construction design projects.
