Established in 1988 and incorporated in 1993, EPI is a full service, Environmental EngineeringConsultingRemediationGeotechnical Engineering, and Site Packaging, firm. At its inception, EPI worked primarily in establishing underground tank tightness, as well as, related testing services. EPI quickly learned that a broader scope of services was needed, in order to excel in this industry. Therefore, EPI made a number of necessary business and management changes that allowed the company to expand into a full service consulting and remediation firm. This allowed EPI to secure a place in the environmental consulting field.  Over the years, EPI has implemented stringent performance standards such as the Quality Management System and Project Management System. This has allowed us to become more competitive in providing customers with high quality services. These programs helped create the foundation for the longevity and success of our company. Today, EPI provides environmental and engineering services to a large client base in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, and a select group of clients nationally.

EPI is a Licensed Illinois Professional Engineering and Design Firm #184.002179.

EPI specializes in a wide range of Environmental Consulting and Engineering services. These services include Environmental Site Assessments (Phase I and Phase II), Site Investigation/Characterization and Risk Assessments, and Closures for various State Voluntary Remediation Programs in the Midwest such as the Illinois Site Remediation Program (SRP) and the Indiana Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP). The majority of our State and Federal Regulatory Agency Program work includes Site Investigation, Remedial Design, Management, and closure in the appropriate program for No Further Remediation (NFR) or No Further Action (NFA) determinations.

We evaluate potential environmental liability and risk exposure, establish risk-based remediation objectives, design, construct, and manage remediation systems. We evaluate soils for construction projects (environmental and geotechnical) to assist owners and developers with efficient management of clean and impacted soil and fill materials.

Our staff of senior environmental and engineering professionals have the experience and intuition to evaluate projects on multiple levels, make sound field judgments and project/construction management decisions. The senior staff develop practical solutions for environmental cleanup and redevelopment projects that result in cost savings rather than project delays.

At EPI, only Senior Staff Professionals and Managers manage our projects.
