Rave Reviews

  • “Your team provides open and honest communication. You do the right thing even if it is unpopular or risky.  You take active responsibility for the quality of service you provide, and you take ownership of the teams goals.  You hold yourself and others accountable for results and work very hard at building professional relationships.”

    Utility Construction Manager
  • “Terra Verde Environmental was instrumental in setting up a project that was both in full compliance with difficult permit conditions, yet effective and productive as well. They have the ability to take complex environmental requirements and put them in layman terms so that the requirements are simple to the working person out on the jobs. I would recommend Terra Verde anytime I could because they care about what they are doing and are extremely professional in their approach.”

    Sean Black, owner, Blue Sky Construction
  • “If I had a wish, it would be that others that I work with in this industry would work as you do . . . Your communication and response to communication was more than timely, concise, and courteous. Working with your company – Terra Verde Environmental Consulting, LLC – has been a professional pleasure.”

    Phil Enns, Architect
