Ascent’s cultural resources staff have specialized training in archaeology, historic preservation, architectural history, cultural resources compliance monitoring, and tribal consultation. As your cultural resource consultants, we are committed and ready to provide more than just report preparation; we will listen closely to your needs and offer ideas, guidance, and brainstorming to help you deliver high-quality projects to the public. Ascent’s goal for tribal relations is to provide local agencies with a suite of tools to empower their own staff to perform meaningful consultation themselves.
Our cultural resources staff have worked in coordination with various government agencies including the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, US Forest Service, US Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Aviation Agency, Federal Highway Administration, US Department of the Army, and California Department of Transportation. We offer expertise in documenting built-environment resources from single building evaluations to district-wide surveys for higher education facilities, pre- and post-World War II residential and commercial buildings, prison facilities, agricultural properties, and water conveyance systems. Our archaeological staff have field and reporting experience in the Central Valley, Sierra Nevada foothills, San Francisco Peninsula, Southern California, and the Great Basin, as well as in parts of Nevada and southwestern Arizona.
