All Phases Archaeology
All Phases Archaeology (APA) is a full-service cultural resources management firm based on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Over the last twenty years APA staff has performed thousands of archaeological survey, testing, monitoring, and data recovery projects throughout the southeastern United States. Through decades of experience, our client-based consulting expertise has helped bring countless projects to fruition on time and within budget.
APA is designed to navigate private developers and clients through the various federal, state, and local historic preservation laws and regulations. Often referred to as “contract archaeology,” the business side of cultural resource management is a $1 billion industry. It is at this intersection of project development and historic preservation, where our service is found. APA will identify and inventory existing cultural resources, evaluate the potential for listing on the National Register of Historic Places and when necessary, mitigate any adverse effect a project may have on a historic property, in order to keep your project right on track.
While many of our nation's cultural resources lie buried below the ground surface, compliance with Sections 106 and 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and/or the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) frequently also requires Architectural History services in determining the impact of an undertaking to the surrounding historic built environment. No matter the project, APA is here to provide ALL PHASES of cultural resources and heritage management necessary to get you to the finish line!
"Cultural Resources Management (CRM) should not only be seen as compliance but also as proper management of heritage and although there is a legal framework of codes and regulations that stand as the backbone of policy, proper management includes consultation and acceptance of alternatives for success."
