Who Silva Consultants Serves

Since 1985, Silva Consultants has served a wide variety of corporations, institutions, governmental agencies, and private clients. The primary types of facilities we provide security consulting services for include:


  • Corporate headquarters facilities

  • Parking facilities

  • Data centers

  • Warehouse and distribution centers

  • Pharmaceutical and biotechnology facilities

  • Software and electronics manufacturing facilities

  • Research and development facilities

  • Industrial facilities

  • Entertainment and media production facilities

  • Hospitals and healthcare facilities

  • City, state and local government facilities

  • Financial and professional services facilities

  • Corporate campuses

  • High-rise buildings

  • Private schools

  • Private residences of corporate executives, celebrities, and high net worth individuals

  • Planned communities, condominiums, and apartment complexes


Our primary focus is on private sector and corporate clients, although we have also done a significant amount of work for city, state, and local government agencies. We generally do not do work for Federal government agencies, military facilities, nuclear facilities, or prisons.


We usually contract directly with the facility owner, and work with the facilities manager, capital projects manager, security manager, corporate counsel, and senior level management team (CEO, COO, CFO). On new construction projects, we are often hired by an architectural or engineering firm to provide security consulting services as a part of the overall design team.


To maintain our independence, we generally do not work directly for guard companies, security systems integrators, security equipment manufacturers, and other providers of security products or services. While we greatly value the importance of these providers, we feel that the end-user client is best served when there is no potential for a conflict of interest.


We also provide security consulting services to certain qualified non-profit organizations and charities for reduced fees or at no charge (See Pro Bono Consulting Services).

Did You Know?

Security solutions that work well in one industry can most often be successfully used in other industries

Consultants who specialize in only a single industry often lose perspective and can become short-sighted

Silva Consultants is located near Seattle, Washington.

Our primary service area is Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California, but we serve clients in all parts of the United States.
