No missed deadlines. No budget overspend. No compliance issues.

Your time and money are valuable. We plan, control, and manage project costs from inception through to completion, keeping projects on schedule and within budget. Our well-trained, expert field teams work tirelessly and efficiently to ensure your project complies with all construction regulation requirements.

PaleoWest is an industry leader in construction compliance–we meticulously review all your construction phase requirements up-front, well before construction begins. Then we go to work helping you design just the right approach to meet them in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Unlike our competitors, we don’t just apply a “standard” approach–we work with you to understand your minimum requirements, then create custom solutions to fit your unique needs.

Although other compliance consultants may have left you disappointed by over-promising and under-delivering, meeting your cost and deadline targets is one of our main priorities. We work as your ally in the field to speed projects up, not slow them down.

Case Study

Palen Solar Project

EDF Renewables

We currently provide cultural and paleontological resource support to EDF Renewables for the Palen Solar Project (PSP), on land managed by the Bureau of Land Management in Riverside County. PaleoWest is in the process of drafting all cultural and paleontological plans for the PSP, including:

  • Tribal Participation Plan
  • Monitoring and Discovery Plan
  • Cultural Resources Research Design and Plan
  • Paleontological Resources Monitoring and Mitigation Plan
  • Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act Plan of Action

We also provided cultural and paleontological resource monitoring for preconstruction geotechnical and site fencing activities at the PSP. Paleontological monitors were a late requirement for this effort, but we successfully provided paleontological field staff ahead of initiation of geotechnical studies and avoided project delays.

“PaleoWest is considered one of EDF’s most trusted consultants. Their management and staff are always professional, responsive, and highly regarded as experts in their fields. Our Desert Harvest and Maverick projects, located in Desert Center, CA, were EDF’s first large-scale projects on BLM land. PaleoWest consulted on these projects from the very beginning all the way through Commercial Operations. When any issues arose on the site, PaleoWest was always there to assist us on the reporting and mitigation required under our agreements. EDF looks forward to awarding PaleoWest many contracts in the future.”
