A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage provided archaeological advice on the redevelopment of empty retail units on High Street to student accomodation. The site is located within the medieval core of Southampton and was known to contain the remains of at least one medieval vault from a building that was destroyed during WWII bombing. The assessment established that archaeological remains in part of the site were likely to have been destroyed by post-WWII redevelopment. 

Orion Heritage provided input into the design of the building to ensure that the surviving medieval vault was preserved in situ. Planning permission was granted with an archaeological condition, following which, Orion Heritage agreed the scope of mitigation works and devised the WSI for this work.
