An environmentally sound approach
Since 1997, we have been helping people improve the land and water around them through creative and innovative engineering practices that form a balance between development and the natural resources. We use the latest technologies, thoughtful designs, and environmentally sustainable concepts to maximize the enjoyment of your land and minimize long-term environmental impact.
At Mill River Consulting, we want to make your dream project a reality. We strive to understand your land and your project goals, and will embrace your project as if it were our own. We believe every project can balance the client’s vision, environmental site conditions and regulatory limits, with a thoughtful and creative approach.
Practicing what we preach
We are committed to our environment and our community. At our Gloucester, Massachusetts, office, we have:
We also purchase goods from local suppliers when possible, purchase goods made in the United States when possible, and hire local staff from Cape Ann.
We support several local organizations, including the Essex County Greenbelt Association, MaritimeGloucester, Ipswich River Watershed Association, Cape Ann Museum, Pathways for Children, and the Gloucester Stage Company.
In addition, we make an annual donation to Massachusetts Center for Native American Awareness. We have discovered that the land where our office and our projects are located was once part of the land used by the Pawtucket people, who were part of the Algonquian-speaking confederacies of the Northeast. In an effort to attempt to rectify the long-ago acquisition of this land, we have chosen to donate to MCNAA, an organization that promotes understanding of Indigenous issues through cultural sharing and education.
