Our Company Bio

Creative Environmental Solutions, Inc. (CES) is a 20-person consultation firm that provides geological, environmental, and engineering services across Florida and throughout the Southeast. CES was founded in 1994 with visions of facilitating the usually difficult and contentious interactions between industry and federal, state, and local regulators; identifying and quantifying rock and mineral deposits vital to the growth and success of the United States; protecting and improving the quality of our lakes, rivers, oceans, and drinking water through thoughtful and practical approaches to environmental cleanup; and helping owners navigate the maze of environmental laws and regulations and obtain permits to start, operate, and expand their businesses. All the while, we strive to provide responsive, consistent service and top-quality products delivered on time and within budget.

Our geologists, engineers, and ecologists have almost 150 years of combined professional experience. George Foster, president and owner of CES, earned his Bachelor’s degree in geology at the University of South Florida and his Master’s degree in geology at the University of Florida. His Master’s research involved the measurement of trace element concentrations in Portland cements and a statistical analysis of the effects these elements have on cement compressive strengths.

We maintain $1 million/$3 million in professional (errors and omissions) and liability insurance, $1 million in vehicular liability insurance, and worker’s compensation insurance. Mr. Foster is a Florida-licensed professional geologist and specializes in contamination assessment, clay mineralogy, and mineral prospecting.

CES is registered in Florida as a Professional Engineer Firm and as a Professional Geological Firm, and as such, can legally practice in these fields. CES staff are all required to have professional and safety certifications and participate in annual 8-hour OSHA safety refresher courses. CES is a drug-free workplace.
