In 2002, Riverside Environmental was founded in order to provide independent surveying and consultancy. To this day we maintain total independence to ensure that our clients are given the most trustworthy advice available. Our mission is not just to protect people, but to do so with clarity, reliability and integrity. We understand that the industry can be complex and confusing, so we want to give you peace of mind that you’re doing the right thing.
Business owners Jonathan Francis and Chris Hansen drive Riverside with the belief that the way you work affects the safety and protection that you are able to offer. This goes much deeper than just having comprehensive processes in the field; it means creating a happy, motivated workforce. Happy staff members obviously work better, but the resulting staff retention means more highly trained personnel and improved expertise within the business.
Jonathan has been at Riverside since its creation in 2002. He has been an important influence in the asbestos industry, serving as the Chairman of ATaC (Asbestos Testing and Consultancy Association). Inevitably with this kind of industry overview he has seen many bad practices over the years. He is determined to learn from these experiences and apply the lessons to all of Riverside’s work.
WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON
BEING RESPONSIVE, EXPERT
Chris came to Riverside in 2010 to help develop the business, having worked as a water consultant and business manager for 11 years. Finding that his beliefs about how best to keep clients safe and give them the best possible customer experience so closely matched those of Jonathan, the pair set about applying the best practices to every area of the business.
This work has led to many happy customers and an incredibly high client retention rate but Jonathan and Chris aren’t done yet. They are always looking to improve the business and its practices as well as constantly searching out new technologies that they can use to give a better service. This could be anything from new tools to deploy in the field or faster systems for generating reports.
Every change to Riverside is there to drive their mission… protecting people.
