Who We Are
Flexible, Independent, Custom
We have earned a reputation for tackling robust, multi-faceted projects that require both technical and project management excellence. Our client-focused approach rests upon three pillars:
- Flexibility: We know one thing when we start a project—things will change! We develop our scopes as a living document that address changing priorities and objectives throughout a project ensuring our deliverables meet our client needs.
- Independence: We are independently owned and operated—our executive staff have lived and breathed this work for almost 30 years. We are trusted advisors who are focused on providing accurate and defensible information to allow our clients to make key decisions. No outside influences change this approach.
- Custom approach: We utilize our experience to focus on the nuances of a project, which allows us to customize our approach to each engagement.
