Since 1969 ESA has been fostering some of the most transformative projects that shape the cities and shoreline of the Greater Bay Area as we know it today. We are a firm committed to the principles of exceptional client service and environmental stewardship. With headquarters in San Francisco, and offices throughout California, the Pacific Northwest and the Southeast, our team of nearly 500 environmental planners, scientists, engineers, and other experts are always seeking new ways to partner with our clients in order to help provide enduring solutions to complex planning and environmental challenges. ESA provides a breadth of experience preparing environmental documents in compliance with CEQA, NEPA, the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, state and federal endangered species acts, and other local, state, and federal requirements. Our engineers and scientists daily contribute to the quickly evolving landscape of creative and multi-objective ecosystem restoration solutions that deliver flood and climate change adaptation strategies. ESA has extensive expertise in in-Bay and waterfront projects for prominent San Francisco Bay agencies and municipalities including the Port of San Francisco; San Francisco International Airport; Port of Oakland; City of Alameda; Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District; City of Richmond; City of Antioch; City of San Leandro; City of Albany; Caltrans; California State Lands Commission; and the National Park Service.

ESA is busy delivering ongoing work around the San Francisco Bay:

ESA distinguishes itself from other environmental consulting firms through the establishment of ESA Airports, a dedicated aviation consulting practice within ESA that serves airports nationwide. ESA’s airport planning practice has developed CEQA documentation and provided other environmental services to more than 50 California airport clients for over four decades, and has worked on projects at SFO almost continuously since the late 1980s, when ESA began preparing the EIR for the 1989 Airport Master Plan. Following on that success, ESA has executed a varied range of environmental projects for SFO and is currently working on a complex EIR for SFO’s next long term masterplan—the Recommended Airport Development Plan—that will support the strategic development of the airport over the next two decades.

ESA is currently assisting the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District with Environmental Compliance Monitoring Services of the construction activities during construction of the Golden Gate Bridge Physical Suicide Deterrent System and Wind Retrofit Project. ESA’s work has included field inspections of the construction sites adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge to ensure compliance with a variety of project permits and plans, including stormwater management, public access, and protection of the Mission blue butterfly habitat.
