Welcome to Ellerbee Environment & Technical 


Our company is an engineering design and environmental consulting company assembled from professionals who have gained acclaim designing highways, bridges, and water containment systems, along with environmental professionals who have assisted clients in navigating the permitting processes of the state and federal regulatory agencies. We are pursuing a natural extension of these services to the energy sector, by expanding our design services to roads and well pads, and offering assistance with environmental testing and permitting services specifically for the oil and gas industry.

Our long relationships with our regulatory agencies help the agencies understand our clients’ needs.  When the need arises, 
Ellerbee stands behind its permit applications by offering the advantage of highly capable negotiators and experienced legal advocacy to make sure that its clients can achieve their goals within the regulatory structure.  We bolster our capabilities in with cooperative agreements with some of the most respected environmental engineers in the region, who serve private companies and government agencies in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, adding those services to those our engineers already bring.

We are a West Virginia company that dedicates itself to quality service.  
Ellerbee is a Minority Business Enterprise (“MBE”) that is located in a Historically Underutilized Business Zone (“HUBZone”).  This allows our customers and co-contractors to enjoy the encouragement that the federal government provides for partnering with businesses that meet those stringent criteria.
