Wintringham, Cambridgeshire

Project - Archaeological Excavation - Wintringham, Cambridgeshire 


Size - 25ha 

L K Construction were commissioned to complete the archaeological excavation of 25Ha and to reinstate once the archaeology is complete. 


As well as the machinery to complete the archaeological excavation we provided a full site set up including all welfare facilities, heras fencing and goal posts. 


 “I regularly work with LK Construction due to both their office team and plant operators being well-experienced in archaeological contract earthworks. They provide consistent high quality in the work they undertake, and are always willing to work with the OA site team to ensure our works to progress smoothly. Wintringham, St Neots was no exception. LK Construction’s team undertook the stripping of c. 25ha to a very high standard and worked with us to ensure the site works were completed within the time and budget allowed.”
