Archaeological Investigations & Section 106 Consultation
Green3 provides a wide range of services associated with historic research, preservation, and cultural tourism. Project work includes both public and private sector reports, projects, programs, and research to support historic preservation initiatives of all types.
Over the past decade, Green3’s staff has worked to prepare historic documentation for projects receiving federal funds. The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966 requires all federal agencies to acknowledge the effects that their actions may have upon historic properties. The Section 106 process was designed to identify, evaluate, and assess these historic properties and determine the impacts of any federally funded projects on existing historic resources.
Green3’s staff includes professionals listed on the Qualified Professional Roster who meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualification Standards and are prequalified with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to prepare Section 106 documentation. The firm’s staff routinely prepares historic property reports for LPA and state intersection improvements, bridge rehabilitations and replacements, and road and sidewalk construction projects. The firm’s staff coordinates all aspects of the Section 106 process through final approval.
