SCS has been conducting Cultural Resource Management throughout the Hawaiian archipelago and greater Pacific region since 1992. We provide archaeological, cultural assessment, and Section 106 services for government organizations, engineering and planning firms, large and small corporations, and private homeowners. We work with many prime contractors on various requirements per their job sites.
The primary concern of cultural resource management is to minimize the loss or degradation of culturally significant material. The physical attributes of cultural resources are non-renewable. –National Park Service, Bulletin 28
SCS is locally owned and operated, with offices on each of the main Hawaiian islands. We aid clients in complying with State Historic Preservation Division requirements, as well as Federal laws and County conditions. The firm is proficient in every type of archaeological and cultural study, as well as having a thorough understanding of the various procedures and laws involved with development in the islands. We engage in all forms of Cultural Resource Management, inclusive of consultations, joint ventures, specialized analysis, and archaeological tasks throughout the islands. SCS consults and interacts on a daily basis with the various communities in which we work.
