Renewable energy resources are a critical and growing component of Irish energy supply as we move towards increased sustainability and clean power sources. The infrastructural necessity for increased energy capacity and water management works brings with it a need for archaeological investigation. Such projects often deal with upland and marine environments, areas where Rubicon have considerable expertise. We have worked on Ireland’s first offshore windfarm project and the UK’s largest onshore complex. Our traditional energy portfolio includes the first electricity interconnector built between Britain and Ireland. Rubicon bring the full range of experience on a wide range of energy projects, including; solar and wind energy, flood alleviation schemes, waste-water treatment facilities, drainage works and water supply.

Rubicon have a long tradition of involvement in heritage projects and outreach, an area the business is passionate about. Our team’s expertise has seen us undertake many important heritage projects for both the public and private sectors, ranging from heritage inventories and audits through to ground-breaking survey work on entire monument classes types. Our outreach services cover both academic and popular publication, child and young adult learning events, public speaking engagements and the preparation of exhibitions. In addition to experienced heritage professionals Rubicon’s team includes survey and graphics departments who assist in providing these services.
Post-excavation is the work that remains to be done after an archaeological site excavation has been completed. It is not necessarily the end of a project, as there may be further groundworks to facilitate or the intention for future publication. However, it does represent the coming together of the site archive, artefact assemblage and specialist research to form the final archaeological report – preserving the site by record once the excavation has demolished the physical site. Rubicon has an in-house post-excavation team who, along with our wider network of consultants and specialists, create a comprehensive programme of works tailored to the needs of each individual project. Whether it’s environmental sample processing, finds numbering, specialist analysis, report writing, graphics or archiving – we can do it all. SEE FEATURED PROJECTS
