Cultural Resources Inventories (Section 106)

At Pivot, we pride ourselves in giving our customers exactly what they need.

When it comes to Class III Inventories, for example, we recommend an extensive

literature search and site visit prior to a full inventory contract. Our clients might decide to alter

their focus if extensive cultural resources will be found on a property. Doing a literature search

as a separate contract from the Class III Inventory allows the client to easily switch gears on a

project without being locked down to a full survey contract.



Archaeology is the study of the past; it doesn’t have to work in the past. At Pivot, we use the latest technology to ensure an efficient and cost-effective completion of any project. Our archaeologists use Apple iPads with custom site forms for all phases of archaeological fieldwork. Complicated site forms are created in the field and are virtually complete when the fieldwork is complete. This compares to site records being completed sometimes months after fieldwork at other companies. As technology changes, we’ll be there to see what works, what doesn’t work, and to choose the best method for each situation.


Aside from using the latest technology, we’re also innovating when we can. Pivot Archaeologists design custom field forms and use technology from other industries to make our jobs more efficient and to get our clients working and permitted faster than the competition.
