Heritage and Archaeology


Working with historic buildings and environments requires specialist knowledge and a sensitive approach. Ramboll's engineering consultants and archaeologists are highly experienced in all aspects of heritage work, and have contributed significantly to the successful conservation, protection and adaptation of internationally important structures and landscapes.

Our dedicated specialists

Understanding the value of the fabric of historic assets is an important requirement for engineers working in this field. Equally, archaeologists working on the protection and regeneration of historic landscapes need to fully understand the reduction of risk. Our dedicated specialists offer the integrity upon which those who care for heritage structures and places depend.

Ramboll's engineers, consultants and archaeologists provide services that enable the successful protection and regeneration of historic environments. The services we offer include:

  • Structural conservation engineering
  • Specialist building services consultancy
  • Archaeological consultancy 

Historic structures — structural and building services engineering

An understanding of current legislation and the principles of conservation best-practice are essential for the successful repair, alteration and adaptation of historic buildings and infrastructure. Our heritage specialists tackle projects holistically, integrating expertise from various other in-house specialists in the investigation of the range of potential risks inherent in this field.

Our engineering interventions in historic contexts combine elegance, honesty and subtlety. We strive to integrate modern building services seamlessly and sensitively into building fabric, and we have provided energy strategies for some of Europe's most significant historic estates.

Our engineers include people who are Conservation Accredited, IHBC registered and active in recognised national and international heritage bodies such as ICOMOS and the Association for Studies in the Conservation of Historic Buildings.

Ramboll's archaeologists have a wealth of experience in a wide range of contexts. This depth of experience enables our consultants to provide comprehensive assessments of the opportunities and the risks associated with cultural heritage work. Our strategies are informed by critical appraisal of significance, impacts, constraints and options, as well as proactive consultation with stakeholders.

Our consultants also have extensive experience in contract management. We ensure that the best available set of capabilities is combined in the most cost-effective way in order to facilitate rigorous and responsible procurement.

We always aim to deliver heritage solutions that will benefit the whole community.
