LSA can help you navigate the full spectrum of federal, State, and local environmental review requirements governing the management and preservation of cultural resources. We back up our knowledge of the regulatory framework with region-specific expertise, professional certifications, and fully appointed laboratory facilities. Our specialists address regulatory requirements pertaining to archaeology, architectural history, local and regional history, cultural landscapes, Native American consultation, and traditional cultural properties. We identify issues early in the planning and design process when the most cost-effective solutions are possible.

Hollyhock House

LSA prepared a supplemental Historic Structures Report (HSR) for Hollyhock House, the centerpiece of the National Historic Landmark Aline Barnsdall Complex.

Tolay Lake Regional Park and Tolay Creek Ranch

LSA conducted cultural resources studies for these two interrelated and adjacent properties in Sonoma County, in anticipation of the creation of a regional park/land trust management partnership and master plan implementation.

One of the best consultants I’ve worked with. LSA was very responsive to our needs and delivered the product on time under a very tight deadline.

LSA is such a great team to work with. They have very knowledgeable staff. They prepared the Cultural Resources Studies for the Salinas Freight Depot Rehab Project, and did such an excellent job delivering the project within its very limited time constraints.
