About PCA


PCA Monograph No.12Pre-Construct Archaeology Limited is a well-established independent company specialising in providing appropriate solutions to heritage problems. At PCA we are acutely aware that many of our clients commission archaeological or built heritage works in order to obtain planning permissions. For some clients this may be an unwanted and unwelcome problem. PCA is here to assist clients in the discharge of their heritage planning conditions.


We have a flexible approach which aims to deliver a professional service, minimising delay and inconvenience while maximising a site's heritage value. We are committed to providing a service which is both high quality and cost-effective. We believe that we can achieve these goals while maintaining the highest professional standards.


We have a proven record of delivering results within an agreed time-scale and budget. Our service is designed to fulfil all planning requirements from desktop assessment through to full excavation and publication. We have a well-established and respected team whose experience at all levels allows us to deliver a unique service designed to meet the specific requirements of each project.


Our work covers a variety of sites, both green and brown-field, above and below ground heritage recording. These projects are wide ranging and include housing developments, road construction, infrastructure improvement and utilities, quarrying, environmental management schemes and industrial facilities.
