Our Story

Our Story

A Geoscientist and a Geological
Engineer joined forces. Then we grew.

In 2007, a group of like-minded engineers and geoscientists joined forces to create Active Earth, an Environmental Engineering firm named in recognition of the earth’s constantly changing state. Through an emphasis on providing quality work, building mutually beneficial relationships with industry and community, and fostering a positive and fun culture, Active Earth inevitably began to flourish.

What Makes Active Earth Unique?

What Makes Active Earth Unique?

Employee Owned

We are 100% employee owned. This ensures that all senior project staff have a stake in the success and reputation of our company and that we care about the outcome of each and every project.

Knowledgeable & Experienced

All project management staff are knowledgeable, personable, and have significant technical experience. We don’t separate “project managers” from “technical staff”. Rather, we find and cultivate people who possess both skill sets.

Superior Communication

We are strong communicators who listen and respond to our clients’ ideas and concerns. We closely track the costs and progress for each project to minimize risks to budget and schedule. We provide frequent, clear, and concise progress reports throughout the life of each project.
