Our Philosophy / Values


At EGS, our philosophy is simple; to be the very best geotechnical engineering and environmental permitting Firm in the State of Florida. We measure that metric by the number of project pursuit wins that our Clients achieve on Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and State and local municipality Infrastructure Project wins. We know that EGS cannot be successful unless our Clients are successful, so we strive to go the extra mile during the project pursuit phase to ensure that our Teams know as much about the project site as they can, prior to the pursuit selection. At EGS, we are also focused on making a difference in the communities that we serve. We are dedicated to community service outreach in a wide variety of programs, and routinely strive to promote STEM education programs to K-12 Students, so that we can help guide the engineers of tomorrow.
