John Bourgeois Bourgeois says opening a dedicated office in the South Bay has been ESA’s goal for some time.

SAN JOSE—Headquartered in San Francisco, national environmental science and planning firm Environmental Science Associates/ESA recently announced the opening of a San Jose office. ESA’s office is located in a new building on The Alameda, a mixed-use project with access to downtown.

Starting with a staff of a half-dozen, the office has the capacity to support ESA’s expected growth to around 25 employees in the South Bay. ESA has worked in the South Bay for many years for clients including the city of San Jose, Santa Clara County, San Jose International Airport and the Santa Clara Valley Water District, helping to develop sustainable solutions to urban development, infrastructure and ecological projects.
