Archaeology and Historic Properties
We at Big Pine Consultants (Big Pine) understand time. We know that artifacts and remains from our Nation’s rich heritage can influence your time-sensitive project. Sites. Structures. Objects. Districts. Landscapes. These are all things that your project planning will likely need to consider for meeting state and federal compliance on time. Big Pine is here to help.
Big Pine’s cultural resources management (CRM) professionals offer expertise in archaeology and historic architecture, complementing our environmental permitting services and streamlining your project needs. Our team can help you effectively navigate Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), as well as assist with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) compliance. We can expertly facilitate consultation with local, state, and federal agencies, as well as Native American Tribes and Nations.
Big Pine’s CRM team offers services including background research, project design analysis, prehistoric and historic archaeological investigation, artifact analysis, historic structure survey, landscape analysis and public outreach. Our CRM professionals have a deep understanding of state and federal regulations and laws. Big Pine CRM leaders meet or exceed the Secretary of the Interior Standards and are recognized by the State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPO) as experts in the industry. We can efficiently mobilize field teams for linear projects, such as natural gas pipelines, and multi-acre projects, like petrochemical plants and compressor stations. Big Pine will help you navigate the cultural resources and heritage needs of your project cost-effectively to save you time and meet your schedule.
