In conjunction with our Remediation Works for the Commonwealth Games Athletes Village in Dalmarnock, Glasgow VHE is required to undertake Archaeological works.
These works comprise an experienced archaeologist overseeing all excavations in identified key areas with additional teams of Archaeological technicians fully excavating and recording those features of significance.
Within the footprint of the proposed works are a number of historical features relating to the heritage of the former industrial processes undertaken within the east end of Glasgow.
To date excavations have uncovered the former boiler house which powered the pump station together with the reservoir from which the water supply for this area was purified and stored extracted from the river Clyde (which forms the southern site boundary) from early 1800s.
Additionally VHE are required to identify and record features where uncovered which relate to the former dye works.
It is also expected that somewhere on site may be the foundations and garden structures from a mid 1700s country mansion “Dalmarnock House”, should this be located within the remediation areas this will be subject to careful investigations.
In conjunction with our site teams VHE employ AOC to undertake the recording and detailed excavations in conjunction with the West of Scotland Archaeology Service.
