Partnering with the right consultant helps ensure that all your needs can be met, which leads to a greater peace of mind and a better quality of life! Whether it’s minimizing your compliance risks, permitting a grass-roots facility, or just getting all of your reporting done, TRICORD is committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Being a Team Player

When joining any team, you commit to a common set of goals and work together to accomplish them.  We don’t just understand the goals of the project, instead we strive to become a member of the team by understanding our clients’ long term goals and sharing in their culture. We operate as an extension of our clients’ office and business operations by getting to know everyone on their team (environmental, engineering, operations, corporate, etc.) and understanding their individual needs.

Providing “Value Added” Services

When completing your scope of work, we always think about how to provide “value added” services during the project. With the great majority of our work products inter-relating to other programs that our customers have the responsibility of managing, this “value added” approach ensures consistency with these other programs and the overall goals of the company.

Being Responsive

We strive to always return our clients’ e-mails, voice messages, etc. within 24 hours of receipt.  On the rare occasion when we cannot provide an immediate answer to your question(s), we will respond by giving you an expectation of when your request will be fulfilled. Our goal is to respond in a timely manner so that our clients can move forward knowing their request will be taken care of.

Delivering Convenience

We know that our customers are often busy with a million high priority tasks.  Whether it’s providing a summary of key consideration points for a report review, working around your daily schedule, or completing deliverables ahead of schedule, we work hard to make environmental compliance easier for you.  We consider our clients’ long term compliance strategy when planning and working on all projects.
