Lots of changes have been happening at the Okemos Cardno Entrix
office on Okemos Road. The environmental consulting company is affiliated with a growing number of offices nationwide, and growth to the entire network has created new positions and an expansion for the local office.
“The office in East Lansing is working on a number of different things,” says John E. Phillips,
of Cardno Entrix. “One is a support group for the BP oil spill. We also provide scientific support in Marshall, Michigan for the spill that occurred there. What they mainly do is evaluation of environmental impact and quality assurance.”
Two positions have been added at Cadno Entrix this year. The office now employs 11 workers, including Ph.D. and Masters level scientists. The team also works with other large clients, such as Cliffs Mining in the Upper Peninsula.
“The office is growing because of some of that work for larger firms,” says Phillips. “We are always looking for resources that will benefit our work.”
As the team has grown, so has the office. In January the Cardno Entix office underwent a renovation project that added an additional 970 square feet to the office, expanding it to a total of nearly 5,000 square feet.
