As our history working with the both municipalities and private businesses throughout California confirms, BAI is well prepared to meet immediate and future geotechnical, construction, and environmental challenges in a time-efficient and concise manner. With our headquarters located in Santa Rosa, BAI can mobilize and respond to planned as well as to unanticipated local projects with minimum notice. BAI provides soils analysis, foundation design, slope stability studies, seismic hazard studies, DSA certified geotechnical services for schools, landslide mitigation, coastal studies, bluff retreat, hydrogeology and geotechnical analysis for VESCO permitting.
Our staff of Geotechnical Engineers and Certified Engineering Geologists are well versed in managing and coordinating multiple projects efficiently and cost-effectively to meet budgets and schedules. We are familiar with the most local city and county agencies, as well as agencies such as Sonoma County PRMD, Mendocino County Coastal Development, the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board (NCRWQCB), California Air Resources Board (CARB), California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW), Community Development, Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Division or the State Architect (DSA), California Geological Survey, (CGS), California Coastal Commission (CCC) and the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). BAI can navigate the permitting processes and coordinate fieldwork and subcontractors to keep projects flowing toward the anticipated completion dates without undue and costly downtime.
