At PEG our commitment and focus for the past 19 years has been what we refer to as Tactical Technical. The consulting disciplines of engineering and environmental science can frequently lead to over-thought and under-practiced analysis. The result can be frustrating for clients, too complex to result in effective action and excessively expensive. Our goal is to apply our combined knowledge of the technical issues at hand with the pragmatic application of the simplest solution possible and always do so with the conscious awareness that service to our clients is key.
