Military Projects

Department of Defense (DoD) agencies are required by federal law to identify and maintain inventories of cultural resources on properties they own or otherwise control. These regulations require that the agencies plan to integrate historic preservation into ongoing programs by establishing protocols for the identification, evaluation, nomination to the National Register, and protection of historic properties. Among the challenges faced in planning process is the need to carefully balance facility mission requirements with the protection of significant archaeological sites and historic aboveground resources that are often present at military installations.

PAL has a thorough understanding of the regulatory guidelines that mandate such studies and over the past two decades has completed hundreds of DoD projects for the Army Corps of Engineers, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Department of Homeland Security. Our work has included investigations on active military training facilities and bases throughout New England and the mid-Atlantic regions. Technical services provided by PAL for these projects have included Section 106 consultation, identification and evaluation of historic properties, and the development and implementation of cultural resource management plans that establish avoidance and preservation/protection protocols for the treatment of historically significant properties.
