"During the course of pre-construction and construction at the Lowe's of Iwilei, Hawaii, Rob was invaluable in not only identifying potential risks, but also providing practical solutions."

Tony Elias
Lowe's Engineering and Construction - WEST

"Robert Luco was extremely impressive as being thoroughly knowledgeable in managing his support team and coordinating all phases of our site work from the start of the excavation to the final offsite disposal of the existing contaminated material. We would absolutely recommend him to any Developer/Owner in need of environmental consulting services."

David Itokazu
