Intensive Level Survey
Many projects--infrastructure improvement projects, power projects, transportation projects, and many others--have the potential to effect historic aboveground resources. Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires that Federal agencies consider the effects of their projects on these historic resources. Architectural History surveys are often a necessary step in the Section 106 consultation process. AECOM Burlington includes a team of Architectural Historians, Historians, and Historic Preservation Specialists that have a great deal of experience with conducting Intensive level surveys.
Intensive level architectural history surveys are often conducted based on the findings in an earlier Reconnaissance level survey. In an Intensive level survey, fewer properties are typically surveyed and they are surveyed in greater detail. These surveys are often undertaken for historic architectural resources that have been identified as being potentially eligible at the local, state, or national level. In depth research is conducted for each resource, detailed physical descriptions and site plans are completed, and a thorough eligibility assessment is required. AECOM has successfully completed several intensive level surveys for such clients as Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Morris County, New Jersey, and Fayetteville Express Pipeline (FEP).
