What our clients say

“It was always been a pleasurable and engaging experience, when partnering with AECOM. It is evident that AECOM values the DBE program, by allowing EHI to provide meaningful services on various projects, while simultaneously offering opportunities to mentor and grow our technical capacities. It is EHI’s commitment to continue to provide valuable DBE services to AECOM.”

“For the past five years, Mr. Eric Roberts has provided exemplary service as the facilitator for the Environmental Management Site-Specific Advisory Board (EM SSAB) Chairs Meeting. I have seen Mr. Roberts’ superior facilitation for the Paducah Citizens Advisory Board but the EM SSAB Chairs meeting is much more difficult to manage… Thank you for continuing to allow Mr. Roberts to provide this service to the US Department of Energy.”

“I have worked with Ed Holmes, EHI’s founder and president, since 2011. Throughout this time, I have continued to be impressed by Ed’s talent for designing communities, and his ability to skillfully partner with both private and public partners to get the job done well.”

“Under the leadership of EHI Consultants, the Southend Park Urban Village Plan was conceived by a consulting team with the participation of affected residents, local elected official, Lexington Urban County Government staff from the Divisions of Engineering, Planning, Community Development, and the Departments of Public Works and Social Services. EHI treated the project area residents themselves as the primary client group and, through many public meetings, focus groups and door-to-door interviews will all residents, a plan emerged addressing the environmental justice issues….”

“Throughout the planning and implementation phases of this complex project, EHI has been readily available to city staff and other team members to respond to issues that result from an ever changing project climate, to research innovative solutions, and to make practical and workable recommendations for long-term project success.”
