"I can confirm that I have
instructed and worked with
Foundations Archaeology on
numerous developments both for
Linden Homes and Persimmon Homes
over the past decade. I have always
found Foundations Archaeology to be
economical, professional, responsive
and eager to work with our site and
design teams to undertake
investigation works promptly and to
assist us in discharging our Planning
responsibilities with the minimum
amount of disruption to the overall
development programme. I would not
hesitate in recommending Roy and his
team to any developer or individual
needing the services of a practical
and professional Archaeological
Consultant".
