Our Values

Communication

We provide consistent clear communication throughout our projects. As a small firm, you will talk directly to the lead engineer, scientist, or GIS Specialist working on your project. We will ensure we exceed your expectations.

Collaboration

We work together with a variety of clients and stakeholders to resolve issues and overcome challenges on projects. Our team of professionals and scope of expertise expands beyond Fain Environmental. We regularly collaborate with other small businesses to give you the best possible solution. We have connections to experts across the industry and understand the value of collaboration among firms.

Integrity

We strive to deliver on a project’s scope of work on time and within budget. We are transparent with how much your project will cost and how long it will take. You will be immediately updated if any unforeseen changes arise that impact the cost or time frame.

Fun

We play just as hard as we work. On weekends, you can often find our employees racing triathlons, marathons, cycling, climbing mountains, or playing fetch.

Diversity

We care deeply about the spaces we work and play in, and we recognize that not every person has the same opportunities as us. By volunteering at environmental restoration and outreach events, we hope to reach people that were not given the chance to speak for the environment. We enjoy mentoring and supporting people from diverse backgrounds and strive to help a diverse group of people to succeed in the environmental field. 

Balance

We bring a diverse range of professional backgrounds, we provide a bigger picture look at environmental issues that balances the importance of all aspects impacted by a project. We provide solutions that incorporate in-depth knowledge of the ecology, hydrology, and geology of the area. Additionally, we understand the value of being excited and engaged at work every day. To guarantee this, we promote and celebrate a healthy work-life balance.
