Underwater excavation represents the ultimate phase of site-resolution, and is only carried out if preservation in situ is not possible. Excavation can occur prior to construction, to streamline the construction process. Excavation can also occur during construction, typically after the discovery of a significant archaeological feature during ground disturbance works.
ADCO provides a fully experienced and capable inhouse archaeolgical team of commercially-certified divers to resolve underwater excavations, and has a suite of bespoke equipment to facilitate such work.
