ECS Philosophy

Environmental Consulting Solutions (ECS) is a company dedicated to designing solutions for your projects. Our approach is based on building a mutually beneficial relationship with you that allows us to anticipate your needs and address them in a proactive manner.


Andrew J. Foerg, CPG , is the Owner and President of ECS, a Michigan concern. The members of ECS have over 60 years of experience providing clients with Environmental Solutions, and have developed a network of strategic partners that provide depth and breadth for the most challenging circumstances. 


ECS helps clients understand and manage environmental risks and associated costs by:


  • Acquiring a thorough understanding of the project scope, timing and critical milestones as well as the clients risk tolerance.

  • Identifying potential “deal killers” at an early stage and designing strategies to keep the project on budget and schedule.

  • Not applying a “cookie cutter” approach to data acquisition – we use common sense and leverage our regulatory relationships to ensure that the data will be sound, defensible and will support the proposed actions.  We do not believe that “more is necessarily better”.

  • Designing innovative approaches to remediation and/or abatement.


ECS’s substantial and wide ranging experience and “big-picture” understanding is a difference maker in this process.  Our understanding of the regulations and technical protocols coupled with strong regulatory relationships enable ECS to design cost effective, innovative approaches that achieve successful outcomes.


ECS also controls costs by skillful coordination of project tasks and subcontractors.  This results in lower investigation costs as well as improved timelines, and on developed sites, has the added benefit of decreasing disruptions to occupants. 


Our innovative thinking can transform deal breakers into deal makers.  We are well versed in risk based corrective action techniques such as encapsulation, operation and maintenance programs, risk assessments, conceptual site models, exposure barriers, engineering/institutional controls and restrictive covenants.
