Our clients' comments
Andrew Josephs was recommended to us and we are very happy to extend that recommendation on to any organisation that requires detailed specialist advice, but in a no nonsense and commercially aware manner.
The excellent service you have always provided Brett makes you our 1st choice for archaeological consultancy every time.
Andy combines a perceptive awareness of the realities of the commercial world with respect for the importance of the archaeological process.
A very competent service providing sound technical advice which has assisted in the formulation of development strategies and has resulted in considerable financial savings.
AJA provide a particularly cost effective and user friendly service. Quarryplan and their clients have undoubtedly benefitted from Andy's expertise and approach.
Andy Josephs always provides timely, considered and commercially aware advice and he has proved invaluable on many occasions. Having Andy to act as a buffer between developer and consultees is essential and I know he has saved our client's many thousands of pounds.
We use Andy Josephs Associates for all of our archaeology planning work because we have found Andy's understanding of the statutory requirements and the requirements of the local conservancy officers and English Heritage to make him very well placed to negotiate the best value pre-application scheme, whilst not back loading excessive archaeological costs to the post permission or operational phases of a site's life.
From preparing pre-submission evaluation works through to agreeing written scheme of investigations and managing the tender process, AJA have successfully balanced Hanson's requirement to meet operational and cost constraints alongside Hanson's desire to maintain and develop relationships with statutory and non statutory bodies
