We are very excited to announce that beginning in March of 2018, BGES will be offering our environmental consulting services to Washington State, with an office located in the greater Seattle area. Ms. Rose Pollock, who grew up in the area, will be managing the Washington office after nearly 4 years of growing with our Anchorage office. We are thrilled to be able to assist new and familiar clients in Washington with all of the same services we currently offer.
As BGES employees Kris Shippen and William Schmaltz near their third year with BGES, they've demonstrated competence in numerous site characterization projects and have shown their commitment to monitoring and cleaning up sites across Alaska.
Our most recent hire, Mr. Evan Tyler, joins the rest of our staff as a Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP) after successfully completing his first full year of environmental consulting. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) oversees many of our projects, and generally requires that the field work be conducted by a QEP. Mr. Tyler has gained the necessary education and experience to competently conduct sampling and other forms of field work. All of BGES' personnel are now QEPs, as defined by the ADEC.
