Environmental Consultants/Property Condition Assessments

The English Company formed in 1990 when two brothers, Brian & Phil English, got together to open a Chicago office providing sales, management and customer service for a business partner that was a national environmental consulting firm. In the mid-1990s, TEC ended the relationship with the national firm and became a full service environmental consulting firm. Our customers are real estate lenders, real estate professionals, real estate attorneys and property owners.

Our company was started on and continues to be all about customer service. We understand that we typically perform technical services for non-technical clients so every day we convert technical information into the language of business. Providing common sense solutions to people who are involved with properties that may have environmental concerns. We are business people who perform technical services with a staff of highly experienced professionals - not technical people trying to be business people. Our pricing is very competitive and our reach is throughout the Midwest and most of the eastern United States.

Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Phase II site investigations
  • Property Condition assessments
  • SRP services
