Professional services

Gahan and Long Ltd is one of Northern Ireland’s premier construction-orientated archaeological consultancies. Established in 2002 by Audrey Gahan and Chris Long it brings together over 30 years of professional archaeological experience.

Since its inception the company has provided archaeological mitigation to the construction industry. It is the aim of the company to involve developers in the archaeological process from the design stage of a project. In our experience this early consideration of potential archaeological discoveries allows project designers to establish a more accurate programme of works and to facilitate any required archaeological mitigation. Through this pro-active approach we find the potential for unplanned and costly delays is minimised and that construction deadlines can therefore be achieved.
