Our team of consultants comprises highly experienced and skilled individuals, each with an existing ‘track record’ that stands alone. Each member, in addition to their general heritage, design, or archaeological skills and experience, has an additional area of expertise and specialisation. This ensures Converge can always provide the necessary service for each and every heritage project.
