The ASA Advantage

This is a result of ownership and management by working professionals only, which eliminates the administrative burden typical of many larger firms, and assures an organizational focus on maintaining client relationships.
As a certified minority- and woman-owned business, ASA finds immense opportunity in establishing strong and mutually beneficial partnerships with firms seeking solutions through science and engineering, and stand by our commitment to provide high quality client-focused products and services. Regardless of whether a project has a minority contracting requirement, ASA aims to serve as a team member for all of our partners and clients.
In addition to our client-focused approach to providing services, ASA also has a strong commitment to the health and safety of our employees. This is accomplished through strict adherence to rigorous health and safety plans developed for each project.
