Alliance Geotechnical Group's basic philosophy of excellence and quality in project delivery and client service is undergirded by its management ownership and employee ownership structure. AGG is employee owned. What does this mean to clients? It means that AGG is able to attract and keep the best employees - individuals who are true partners with a vested interest in the outcome of every project. Through this approach, client service moves beyond a business philosophy and becomes the basis of business practice.
Drawing from the collective experience of principals and senior staff, AGG offers a background of service, dating back to 1975, to a broad client base in both the public and private sectors. Client groups include:
- State and local government agencies
- Civil Engineers
