"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".

"Countryside Renewables would not hesitate to recommend Foundations for complex archaeological planning requirements and negotiations with demanding councils. We used Foundations for a large solar plus storage project in Wales. Their deep experience, commercial understanding and wide knowledge base ultimately resulted in a reasonable outcome acceptable to all parties. Foundations were extremely reliable - delivering high quality work on time. Foundations' combination of experience, reasonableness, high standards and ability to meet deadlines is a rare find in archaeology! "
