FAME joins Scheme as a new Supporter
Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers (FAME) is the trade association for commercial archaeology companies in the UK and Ireland.
FAME is the distinctive voice of archaeological employers and managers, and the only organisation solely devoted to representing their interests within the profession and the business world.
I’m delighted that FAME has become a Supporter of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. Archaeological remains are a record of past lives and environments, and investigating them through commercial archaeology has become an embedded part of the construction process. FAME members are committed to working in partnership with considerate constructors to explore, record and explain the past as it is revealed through the construction process.
A road of discoveries
The Scheme recently spoke to Ultra Site A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme about the archaeological work carried out on site before construction work began. Read below our case study on how the Ultra Site worked closely with a team of 250 archaeologists to uncover 250,000 artefacts on the £1.5 billion roadworks project.
Scheme Supporters work alongside the Scheme to promote best practice across all sectors of the industry. Scheme Supporters appreciate the impact that the Considerate Constructors Scheme has on UK and Irish construction and the benefits of registration, and encourage all those working within construction to support this valuable initiative.
