We treat our clients as business partners.

Technical Competence – STERLING’s technical competence consists of professionals in integrated disciplines including: geology, hydrogeology, environmental permitting, civil and environmental engineering and computer-aided drafting and design. These resources benefit STERLING’s clients through our in-house ability to assemble highly competent project teams and demonstrated ability to take advantage of a multi-discipline approach to a project. STERLING’s senior staff have experience in the public and private sectors, as well as in academia and industry.
Project Management - STERLING is unique in the field in that all project work is personally directed by the company’s principal, Mark P.
