Trident Environmental is a partnership of the professional staff members of the former TRW Midland, Texas office (Dale Littlejohn and Gilbert Van Deventer). The primary function of the partnership is to provide a common operational name, invoicing and accounting, professional and liability insurance, and equipment pool. Each partner is an individual corporation bound to one another by a common standard of ethics, trust, and years of friendship.
At Trident Environmental, we believe that the Project Manager-Client relationship is the highest priority, therefore when you put one of our partners to work on your project the consultant that you select will remain the primary contact for as long as you require his professional services. What does that mean for you, the client?
You will always have direct priority access to your project manager, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You will never call your project manager only to be told that he has been reassigned and a new manager has taken over your site. If one of our project managers leaves Trident Environmental he is completely free to retain developed clients and projects.
If you ever have a question about an invoice you only need to ask your project manager because he created the invoice, printed it out, and mailed it to you. He also has the power to make adjustments and corrections to your invoice without consulting a higher authority.
The hourly billing rates established by Trident Environmental are task-dependent, not person-dependent like all the other environmental consulting companies. This gives our most experienced project managers the opportunity to participate in field assessment and monitoring activities at billing rates far below the industry-standard level. As one of our clients you will benefit in the following ways:
The Trident Environmental technician on your site will always be an experienced and safety-certified professional, keenly aware of the surrounding hazards.
When your Trident Environmental project manager prepares a submittal to the regulatory authority for your site you can be confident that they are intimate with the smallest characterization detail, without having to review a previous report. This is because they are generally on site when the release source was identified and abated, they described the subsurface geology during the delineation process, and they observed the color, odor, and recharge potential of the aquifer during many of the sampling operations.
The Trident Environmental billing schedule also includes a special "break-even" travel rate so that you can send you project manager anywhere you have a problem while remaining competitive with any local consulting firm.
Trident Environmental does not own or operated any "yellow metal", drilling rigs, or push-probe sampling equipment. We are not associated with a laboratory, landfill, or treatment facility and are not distributors of any assessment or remediation equipment. As a result our project managers are totally free to select the most appropriate and cost-effective method to solve your site's unique environmental problems. In addition, while the Trident Environmental partnership agreement encourages the utilization of other Trident partners when their skills are appropriate for a project's needs, the decision to stay within the partnership or utilize outside contract help is made solely by the project manager and his client.
