Small Company Flexibility, Big Company Capability

EIL is an environmental consulting, engineering, and information management firm that serves clients nationwide.  Our focus is providing our clients with high quality, economical solutions to the diverse environmental, engineering, and data management challenges that they confront. Our team includes licensed civil, geotechnical, geological and environmental engineers, professional project managers, environmental scientists, biologists, chemists, hydrogeologists and technicians with a variety of certifications.

We believe that trying to be all things to all people is a recipe for mediocrity.  And when you hire a consultant to help you with environmental or engineering work, “mediocre” is probably not on your list of the qualities that you’re looking for in a firm.  We’re very good at what we do.  And because we want to earn your business year after year, we are always honest about our capabilites.  If our expertise matches your needs, you can be assured we'll help you get your project done right the first time.  If we aren't confident that we can bring value to your project, we'll steer you towards someone that can.  Because the bottom line is that for us to be successful, your project must be successful.  

Small Company Flexibility.  We’re not the biggest company in the industry – far from it, actually.  And we like it that way.   As a small company, we nurture a culture that incourages grassroots ingenuity - we are always asking ourselves how we can do it better.  We reward performance, not tenure.  We aggressively guard against unnecessary bureaucracy and overhead.  We treat each other as professionals.  It's the operational flexability inherent to a small company that help us attract and retain the best talent in the industry.  

Big Company Capability.  And it's that talent that gives us our big company capability. Stack an EIL project team against any project team from one of the big companies.  Our team will meet or exceed the experience, qualifications, training, and, most importantly, the performance of anyone in the industry.  For non-routine, complex projects, we often utilize project networksassembling a project-specific team from a group of firms we routinely collaborate with.  With big consulting companies, you often get whoever they have available because that's what's in their best interest. Our approach puts your project's interests first, the way it should be.

Our Mission

EIL is a business.  But just making money is not our driving motivation because we are more than a business. 

We are a group of like-minded professionals that have come together to create a company where we can practice and refine our chosen craft of environmental consulting.  We strive to create a stable workplace where each person’s opinions can be heard, where the tools necessary for an individual’s success are readily available, and where each person’s contribution to the company’s success is fairly evaluated and rewarded. 

We want to build long term relationships with our clients based on mutual respect, trust, and the value of the services we provide.  We do this by always striving to do what’s in the best interest of our client.
