Our professionals are called upon to provide expertise and problem solving in many complex and potentially expensive problems (either from a capital expense or from a present-worth cost) that we find ourselves increasingly facing.

We operate as professional extensions of our clients’ staff, working closely with their technical staff, as well as, the required regulatory agencies, to find a solution, determine the resource potential, and design systems that will meet the regulatory requirements. We achieve this at an economical cost and with the future expenses known.

Our job is to provide the client with a solution that can be permitted by the regulatory authority and to minimize the footprint of their activities in a sustainable manner that considers the social, economic, and environmental implications of the solution.
