Ridolfi Engineers

Specialty: Project management of cleanup and habitat restoration projects Principal: Callie Ridolfi
2000 revenues: $1 million-$1.5 million
Projected 2001 revenues: $1 million-$1.5 million

For a small firm, the staff of Ridolfi Engineers sure gets around.

Fresh off completing a habitat restoration project as part of the Commencement Bay Superfund site in Tacoma, principal Callie Ridolfi says the firm has just inked a contract with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service to provide Superfund and natural resource damage assessment assistance to the agency in New Mexico. Ridolfi Engineers also signed a similar agreement with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for this region.

The firm also is cleaning up federal facilities and brownfields on Alaska’s Annette Island, near Ketchikan. That project has just been named a Brownfields Showcase project by the Environmental Protection Agency.

This work is in addition to mine cleanups, reclamations and restorations the firm is undertaking in Idaho, Eastern Washington and Nevada.

Ridolfi says it’s a challenge for a company of 14 employees strong to have such far-flung work. Besides Seattle, Ridolfi Engineers has offices in Alaska, Coeur d’Alene and Port Angeles.

Also, Ridolfi estimates she spends 20 percent of her time on her work as president of People for Salmon. But, she notes, “We may be hiring before the end of the year to service some of our new contracts.”
