“3S is very creative and pragmatic with a genuine focus on our bottom line, which we've really appreciated.”

“After three months of getting nowhere with DBI to get my TI signed off, I sought out 3S for assistance and within 24 hours my compliance issue was solved!”

At 3S, we have applied our collective 55 years of government experience and expertise to create a unique, women-owned consulting firm. We work with local regulatory bodies and governments for our eclectic client base, who range from small local businesses to Fortune 500 real estate developers and nonprofit companies.

We understand that projects important to the local community can be compromised and delayed, even if they have political and community based support. We aim to use cost effective and pragmatic methods, to help move these projects forward in a timely fashion, despite regulatory hurdles. Working consciously and effectively, we make sure that our clients save money, so they don’t spend it on red tape and additional costs (such as expensive legal representation or lobbyists).

Our expertise is versatile and multifaceted, with services that include but are not limited to: Strategic Consulting for planning and building related needs, Property Due Dilligence, Zoning and Contract Analysis, and Consulting for Legislative Approvals from various governmental departments such as Planning, Building, Public Works & Health.

At the moment, we are proud to represent the Hunters-Point Shipyard, a well-known San Francisco landmark that is being redeveloped to house more than 12,000 housing units and over 3 million square feet of office space in its 500-acre site. We are equally proud to work with the California Academy of Sciences and San Francisco Unified School District. As a community based company, we are also fortunate to include various small businesses such as local commercial developers, restaurants and real estate brokers in our vibrant and unique portfolio.

“The 3S team is a Godsend. They always listen to what you need and seek creative ways to solve the problems.  Great communication, you will never feel you are fighting alone. Greatly Appreciated!”

– ML, Business Owner
