Our History

It all started in July 1993 when Lauren Evans, PE, created Pinyon Environmental Engineering Resources, Inc.


Pinyon began with a desk and a chair in the founder’s garage in Lakewood, Colorado.

Lauren founded the company on the belief that consulting companies should provide quality services with a focus on each client’s individual needs and requirements.


She passionately believes to this day that professional services should be delivered in a cost-efficient manner.


It was her leadership that helped the organization embrace excellence at every level and pass it on to our clients by providing high-quality services.


The company continues to be dedicated to these goals, making Pinyon Environmental, Inc. a well-respected environmental consulting firm that it is in the industry today.

We have over 25 years of experience dedicated to providing environmental services to those who have a responsibility to be good environmental citizens.


Our technical professionals, now numbering over 70, are some of the finest environmental scientists and engineers in the industry. Each is genuine in his or her desire to help clients achieve environmental compliance.


Our history has proven that our core beliefs and founding principles have kept the Pinyon mission on track to this very day, and will keep the company focussed into many years to come.
