Get to know QEPI

We are a team

Quality Environmental Professionals Inc, “QEPI” was incorporated in the State of Indiana on January 30, 1996 and founded by Deborah E. Peters, a licensed professional Geologist in Indiana, Illinois and Tennessee. QEPI has received many honors and was the proud recipient of two Growth 100 awards in 1998 and 1999, awarded to Indiana’s top high-growth firms. QEPI received the Senator Richard G. Lugar Community Service Award in 1999 in recognition of volunteer assistance with policy development for the Risk Assessment process with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

QEPI provides a full spectrum of innovative and cost-effective environmental, engineering and management consulting services. We are recognized as Brownfield Redevelopment Experts. QEPI has been working in public, private and government sectors since 1996, and QEPI employees are client-focused and are driven by your needs and aspirations. QEPI employees are problem solvers with a focus on team leadership who integrate your projects with the ingenuity it takes to make each project cost-effective and responsive. We are interested in building long-lasting relationships based on mutual trust and respect.

QEPI is the proud recipient of the Indiana University School of Science Philanthropic Award in 2001 for assistance in teaching and providing internship opportunities at QEPI for science students. QEPI was the Shell Oil Vendor of the Year in 2003, won the Spirit of Award for the Indiana Corporate Challenge in 2003 and was a runner up for the Indiana Blue Chip award in 2004. QEPI won the “People’s Choice Award” at the 2008 National Brownfield Association Conference crediting quick turnaround on shovel-ready status for the City of Indianapolis former Ertel Manufacturing property. QEPI has completed 44 Brownfields sites across Indiana and are working with the USEPA on 36 Superfund Technical Assessment Response Team (START) sites.

QEPI is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana with field offices in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Chicago, Illinois. We are based in the Midwest, but QEPI has experience in over 46 states spanning all United States Environmental Protection Agency regions. QEPI is uniquely positioned to serve as your environmental, engineering or management consultant in any part of the country. We are proud of the recommendations from our private, public and government sector clients regarding the expertise and professionalism shown by QEPI professionals.

QEPI is classified as an economic disadvantaged woman-owned small business (EDWOSB), but we do not expect project work or rely on this classification as we are a quality-based firm. QEPI is always selected based on our qualifications and high standards, making QEPI the low risk, high quality consultant for any organization.
