About Silva Consultants
Silva Consultants was founded in 1985 by Michael A. Silva and was the first independent security consulting and design firm to be located in the Pacific Northwest.
Mr. Silva has over forty years of security industry experience including hands-on involvement in every phase of security system planning, design, installation and service.
Silva Consultants has performed work on hundreds of projects throughout the United States and our clients have included many of the largest corporations and public institutions located in the Pacific Northwest.
