Cultural Resource Management (CRM) practice varies in scope depending on client needs as well as Federal, State, and local regulations. As a professional consulting firm, CCR works with clients and government agencies to provide the appropriate level of effort necessary for a successful product. For most compliance projects involving federal permitting, federal funding, or state review processes, there are four components that may take place as part of a consultative process: identification of consulting parties , identification of historic properties within the Area of Potential Effects, assessment of potential adverse effects from the project, and, if necessary, resolution of adverse effects. Other types of projects may reflect preservation priorities and planning efforts of federal agencies, state and local governments, or private organizations.
Examples of CCR projects, below, illustrate the types of project areas, mandates, and historic properties (archaeological sites, above-ground historic structures; battlefields) that may be involved in our CRM practice. These projects reflect successful outcomes where the balance of concerns over preservation, infrastructure, public concern, and/or desire for public accessibility and tourism were facilitated.
