Task at Hand:
We were entrusted with the delicate task of excavating a 300mm x 300mm hole, 400mm deep. This careful excavation was necessary for surveying the substrate for future construction work on this archaeologically important building – the very place where King Richard III was discovered!
Working alongside an archaeological team, we core drilled in 100mm increments, with each layer being meticulously examined by the architect before proceeding further. Although no artefacts were unearthed, the importance of preserving and respecting the site’s history was paramount.
