Our Philosophy... It Starts on a Whiteboard...

Empty Whiteboard

...where one CTI client saved $5 million.

What you see above is a blank whiteboard. We see endless opportunities. When our team of qualified, capable engineers get in front of a whiteboard, our clients realize solutions to their problems. The whiteboard is our arena for creative discussion and debate. It is a way of opening our minds to the vast possibilities. We step back from the problem, roll up our sleeves, then attack the challenge with one goal in mind: finding your solution.

Our top priority is providing practical solutions to problems in the areas of water and earth sciences while being socially and environmentally responsible. When you choose CTI, rest assured that each engineer you encounter will have years of experience in finding innovative answers. We take your challenge to the whiteboard and utilize over six hundred years of collective knowledge to reach a workable solution that will employ the latest technology. With this method, WE HAVE BUILT A REPUTATION FOR SOLVING "THE HARD ONES."

So what else is unique about CTI? We believe our people are the difference. Here, you will find a workplace that stresses excellence through personalized service. A company whose employees are also its owners. An environment that provides each employee with challenging and rewarding opportunities for professional growth. A community of peers who have a lot at stake in each challenge we face.

CTI is a company of excellence. We measure success in terms of quality solutions to today's challenging problems. We achieve it through the commitment, integrity and loyalty of our employees.

Whiteboarding allows us to glean practical and innovative solutions for our clients. We resolve environmental challenges while addressing community concerns. Our experience and commitment to teamwork allow us to approach your problem with Practical Innovation, By Design®.
