History

1980 – GREEN ENGINEERING WAS FOUNDED

Primarily working for mining companies in the first few years, projects consisted of permitting mining operations, sewage facilities, refuse disposal areas and public water facilities for residents affected by older, abandoned mining sites before reclamation laws became effective in the late 1970s.

 

1988 – GREEN ENGINEERING, INC. ESTABLISHED

As work expanded to the design of public water facilities and line extensions, additional employees were necessary to complete these projects.  With funding coming from federal and state agencies, projects were completed for the Central Barbour and Chestnut Ridge Public Service Districts in Barbour County, the Hamrick Public Service District in Tucker County and the Huttonsville Public Service District in Randolph County.

 

1995 – SURVEYING SERVICES ADDED

Surveying services were added to our Civil, Mining and Environmental Engineering services, which included boundary surveys, construction stakeout and topographical surveys.

 

1996 – WORK CONCENTRATES ON WATER AND MINING PROJECTS

Expansion of areas served with potable water by the Central Barbour PSD in Barbour County and the Huttonsville PSD in Randolph County were completed.  Mining work was concentrated in Preston County through the West Virginia Small Operators Assistance Program (SOAP).

 

2000 – MINING WORK PHASES OUT, SUBDIVISION WORK INCREASES

Involved in Housing Development Work in Harrison, Randolph and Taylor Counties.  Mining workload decreases from 80% in the 1980s to 20% at the end of the 1990s.  Additional surveying work performed through our service area.

 

2002 – WATERLINE PROJECT WORK INCREASES
