Since 1977, Brian F. Smith and Associates, Inc. has been providing environmental consulting services to public and private clients for archaeological, paleontological, biological, and historical projects throughout Southern California and across the Western United States.  Initially focusing on purely providing consulting services for cultural resources, BFSA developed specialized services in the environmental compliance industry, encompassing all aspects of local, state, and federal regulations. The combined experience of the principal consultants and associates represents more than 100 years of involvement in the study of the history and prehistory of this region.

BFSA Principals, senior staff, and directors have decades of professional experience in cultural resources management. Each of our senior staff members exceed the Secretary of the Interior's Professional Qualification Standards, with a range of expertise in environmental compliance laws and regulations, including CEQA, NEPA, SEPA and NHPA. Through their experience, our technical experts can provide comprehensive assessments and appropriate recommendations while considering our clients budget and time constraints.

BFSA has the largest continuously operational cultural resource staff operating in Southern California and as a result BFSA can meet the staffing needs of any project no matter how large or small.  BFSA often conducts multiple large scale projects simultaneously serving the needs of all of our clients while maintaining and delivering high-quality products on schedule.
