What does your firm do and any plans for the future? BGTEnvironmental (BGTE) is a Women Owned Small Business that offers creative approaches to demonstrating compliance with environmental regulations, while providing common sense solutions to reduce risks and liabilities to commercial property clients. With almost 20 years of experience, I focus on environmental site assessments, soil and groundwater characterization, remediation, and Transfer Act closeout. However, my favorite projects are the cleanup of brownfield sites. Redevelopment of these blithe properties helps strengthen communities, creates jobs and/or provides housing. 

The future is bright for BGTE. Last year, Graham Washburn joined our team adding Geographic Information Systems (GIS) capabilities to our firm. This May we moved into office space in Moodus, Connecticut. Our plan is to continue to grow in the public and private sector, expand our GIS service contracts, and strengthen our overall understanding of the new environmental regulations as they change in Conn.  BGTE has been approached by several other existing environmental firms in CT and MA about partnering opportunities to best leverage our combined experience and expertise. We anticipate that these partnering opportunities will lead to several new projects in the near future.
