Having worked on hundreds of projects that encompass all aspects of archaeological discoveries, Raba Kistner is uniquely qualified to assist both public and private clients with cultural resources compliance, from the planning and design phases through construction monitoring. Our experience with operating under the jurisdiction of local, state, and federal oversight agencies helps to ensure that compliance is achieved in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Depending on the source of project funding, permitting necessities, and land ownership, development projects can fall under the jurisdiction of local development codes, the Antiquities Code of Texas, or Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The incidental discovery of archaeological materials during construction can mushroom into costly compliance delays that can greatly impact project completion. Raba Kistner’s many resources, including an archaeological processing laboratory, extensive Graphic Information System-capacity, precise sub-meter mapping capacity (Leica mapping system and GPS units), ground-penetrating radar, and other equipment and laboratories, may be used to satisfy such compliance requirements.
