Spindrift Consulting (Spindrift) is a woman- and minority-owned cultural resources compliance small business enterprise (WBE, MBE, SBE). During the project design phase, Spindrift performs impact analyses to evaluate if a proposed development project is likely to pose any adverse impacts to archaeological sites, historic buildings, ethnographic or Tribal Cultural Resources, and paleontological resources or fossils. If impacts are expected during the project implementation phase, then we work to develop mitigation measures to prevent, minimize or mitigate such impacts, as well as provide mitigation monitoring services during geotechnical assessments (design) and project grading and trenching (construction).

We also partner to provide similar services for other related environmental disciplines, such as Air Quality and Green House Gases (GHG), Biological Resources, Climate Change & Climate Action Planning, Geology/Soils, Ground Water Modelling, Land Use/Planning, Mineral Resources, Noise & Acoustics, Socio-Economic Studies, and Transportation & Traffic.
