Teranis Consulting Ltd. was incorporated in 2006 by desire of the principals to provide clients with effective consulting services and solutions. Teranis is a scientific and environmental consulting firm specializing in high quality, value added, and professional services in: contaminated site investigation, environmental monitoring, remediation, air quality, risk assessment, project management and other related fields of service.

Distinctly different from larger consulting firms, our approach is to have a small, highly qualified team that provides clients with immediate and extensive experience with capacity to complete projects from cradle to grave.  The expertise of each professional allows Teranis to operate on a relatively flat management structure, so decisions are made quickly and effectively, with input from the principals at all levels.  This structure enables Teranis to partner with other specialists to provide clients additional expert advice.
