Our History

Environmental Partners was founded in 1997 by Paul Gabriel and Mark White. Having worked together for over ten years, Mark and Paul shared the fundamental philosophy of forming partnerships with clients in order to develop the most appropriate solutions to the challenges at hand. This shared commitment to clients led to the formation of Environmental Partners Group, Inc. and our strict focus on client service through partnership.

Early on, Environmental Partners established its reputation for full-service capabilities on significant solid waste, hazardous waste, and wastewater projects. These projects included the successful design and construction of a Superfund landfill remediation project in southern Vermont, and serving as the owner’s project manager for a $20 Million wastewater collection and treatment system project for the Town of Provincetown, MA. Consistently demonstrating the ability to develop sound strategic solutions, and deliver the array of technical services of a larger firm while remaining focused on client services, proved quickly to be a strategy clients wanted and needed. Today, with more than 70 professional staff and four offices, EP continues to provide extensive and diverse services.

While EP has grown and diversified, it remains committed to providing the best client service in the industry providing a broad array of engineering and consulting services and is proud to be an industry leader in the New England region.
