About Triterra

Triterra is a Michigan-based, environmental consulting firm with offices in Lansing, Grand Rapids, and Alma, Michigan. Our company’s philosophy is to provide prompt and timely service, while continually finding methods to increase the level of value delivered to our clients. Using our expert knowledge in brownfield development, environmental consulting, and natural resource management services, Triterra has successfully advised and assisted a wide range of organizations implement solutions to complex environmental and/or development challenges. These organizations include businesses, developers, property owners, lending institutions, attorneys, municipalities, tribal, and other governmental entities.

Triterra was founded by experienced environmental professionals, committed to delivering practical and creative environmental solutions to our clients. This commitment is continuously reflected through our professional staff, exceptional services, and responsiveness to client’s needs. Our staff understands the necessity for quality environmental services that balance our client’s goals with regulatory compliance through well-crafted solutions.


Triterra was founded in 2008 following the downsizing of a medium-sized, Midwestern environmental consulting firm. The Michigan operations, staff, and clients were retained and provided the foundation for Triterra to become immediately successful.

The firm draws from a wealth of experience as our professional staff has an extensive and proven track record in the environmental sciences, having completed numerous property due diligence, contaminant investigation/remediation, and brownfield-related projects. Triterra’s professional staff provides over 100 years of combined experience in the environmental industry. Our knowledge, shared commitment, and core focus provide the driving force behind Triterra’s continued success.

In October 2013, Don McNabb took over as CEO and implemented a revised strategic growth strategy. Over the next few years, J.P. Buckingham and Dave Van Haaren were brought in as additional principals with the firm. With a collaborative Leadership Team and additional staff onboard, Triterra was well-positioned to assist more clients and much larger projects.
