Work Philosophy

AGVIQ seeks scientific solutions for our clients that will allow for the most cost-effective, environmental compliant solutions. When our clients identify an environmental concern, they come to AGVIQ for our expertise of regulations and ability to provide sound technical solutions. We begin the process by identifying a scope of work that will define the process, project requirements and budgetary needs. We seek to build a partnership with our clients that will reinforce our understanding of their specific situation and the solution. Once we have approval from the client, our scientists work closely with regulators to develop an understanding of work plans, actions and specifics of a project. By bridging the relationship between the client and regulating agency, we negotiate a work plan with the regulators, so our clients do not find themselves in a difficult situation once the project begins. Health and safety, quality assurance, and quality control are very important to our company. We complete projects on time, on budget and have an outstanding record with long-standing clients.
