AECOM and URS have joined together as one company


  • Archaeology: Urban



    Archaeology in the Big City! Many people believe that archaeological digs occur mainly in pristine woodland settings or small historic towns. Not So! AECOM has undertaken major archaeological excavations within many of the Mid-Atlantic regions' largest metropolises. From New York City and Boston, to Philadelphia and Baltimore, AECOM archaeologists are comfortable in these urban landscapes and experienced in dealing with the special challenges therein. Whether overseeing projects amongst the skyscrapers of Lower Manhattan, historic Philadelphia, or downtown Boston, AECOM's dedicated team of Big City archaeologists are up to the task.

    Whether in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, those of Boston's majestic Faneuil Hall, New York's City Hall, or Philadelphia's gleaming ribbon of I-95, AECOM archaeologists serve the needs of a diverse group of clients. The National Park Service, New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Long Island Rail Road, the City of Paterson NJ, and NYC's Department of Design and Construction are just a few AECOM's many satisfied Big City customers.
