E3 Works on Pio Pico Energy Center, IJ Global’s North American Bond Deal of the Year 2015

At E3, we embrace the concept of becoming an extension of your staff and believe that you should get what you pay for. We provide straightforward estimates based on scopes developed with our clients and report our progress on schedule, budget, scope changes, and deliverables each week so you know exactly what to expect.

Repeat clients comprise more than 80 percent of E3's business, and existing clients are responsible for the majority of our referrals of new business.

At E3 Consulting we believe that success demands two perspectives: broad and focused.

Broad: All of our consultants have worked across a broad spectrum of industries, adding both depth and breadth of perspective. This wide array of experience helps our consultants rapidly identify issues, saving valuable time.

Focused: Most E3 consultants have served on the front lines in one or more specific industries giving them hands-on knowledge; letting them focus on only those issues that affect the outcome of your project.
