Why Santa Barbara Consultants?

Santa Barbara is the Christian Saint considered the patron saint and protector of miners and tunnel builders, and in many countries small statues of her are placed at the entrance to protect the tunnel and those who work in it during construction. Her Saint’s day is celebrated on December 4th.
