About Us

Sims and Associates is returning to its root services ("geochemistry"), an area that we first offered to our clients in 1997 under the name of KLA Environmental Consulting, Inc. (see our short history). We are pleased to announce that we will provided geochemistry (Soil Testing) once again to engineering firms and government agencies within Clark County and the state of Nevada. We are approved by the Clark County Building Department to provide chemical testing to engineering firms.

A short overview and history:

Sims and Associates is a Veteran Owned-Small Business that began doing business in Clark County, Nevada on June 1, 1997 under the name of KLA Environmental Consulting, changing its name to Silver State Analytical Laboratory in 2002 and subsequently selling off the laboratory division in 2004. After 2004 we operated as a consulting firm providing geochemistry related services (i.e. analytical chemistry, expert witness, soil related sciences) across the nation.

Since the beginning, Sims & Associates has provided comprehensive geochemistry and agronomy services to engineering and government clients. Our team of scientists have advanced degrees in analytical and soil chemistry. Sims' consists of a group of highly trained, research-oriented scientists who regularly conduct geochemical surveys, soil chemical testing, paleohydrological studies, and expert witness duties on soil and regulatory chemistry related cases. We work throughout the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii on projects ranging from private to federal undertakings.

Sims' reopened its soil chemistry laboratory in the Las Vegas Valley to provide engineering and geotechnical firms' comprehensive soil chemistry testing (e.g. sodium-sulfate, chlorides). This area of specialty was what Sims' began performing for engineering firms back in 1997; the nucleation of the company.
