Firm Profile

Redwood Consulting Associates is a woman-owned full-service civil consulting firm founded in 2010 by a small collaborative team of professional civil engineers and designers. Our goal was to establish a network of small, independent professionals who are well-seasoned, passionate about their work, and dedicated to providing our clients with the best service possible. Because we are not tied to a larger corporation's bottom line, we are able to keep costs down and respond much quicker and more effectively to our clients' needs. 

We have produced noteworthy planning and design services, as well as provided program and project management for several high-profile projects throughout the greater Bay Area. We have served as employees of corporate firms as well as government agencies, and indeed, our clients are a mix of both private and public entities. We are familiar with the workings of local government and understand the complexities and intricacies of interoffice policies, and can greatly minimize workload and provide streamlined and responsive communication.

We are committed to excellence and dedicated to exceptional client service. We combine a high degree of professional competence with our experience in managing complex projects. RCA provides comprehensive design services based on the importance of working with the client throughout the design process, “from concept to concrete”. We are highly responsive and we believe in "early and frequent" communication with our clients. 

We provide creative yet practical solutions to your civil engineering needs. Responsiveness and the ability to provide cost effective solutions are key to our success, and have earned us repeat customers. Our clients have consistently rated our services as “excellent” and have referred us to others. We are proud of our accomplishments and the excellent rapport we have with many of our existing clients.
