How to Get Started

Step 1


A conversation gets the ball rolling. There's never a charge for conversations at this stage, so feel free to explore your options. We'd love to learn about where you are and where you want to go. You can get a feel for how we might approach your project and how we see some of your options going forward. Please submit this form or call us at (765) 553‑4028.

Step 2

Project Evaluation

A project evaluation is a paid service that allows us to get to know a new client, so we can write an informed proposal. We contact the necessary people on your team and assess your current systems to get a picture of your TBM program, the needs, opportunities and goals. Project evaluations are usually completed within two weeks and sometimes require an on-site visit. After receiving the proposal, you may hire us for a project, but in any case the designs and recommendations are yours to use as you like.
