The + is in Our Independent Engineers

Harris Group’s independent engineering expertise is rooted in our engineering design experience.

 For over 40 years we’ve designed advanced industrial facilities in a variety of industries.  We have experience in what makes projects succeed and where the challenges are from pre-financial close through construction and commercial operations.  

Properly assessing risk, whether technical, commercial, or regulatory, allows financiers to appropriately evaluate the viability of a given project and make investment decisions.   



Harris Group’s philosophy in performing independent engineering services for our clients is to provide an unbiased, objective opinion on the technical, economic, and environmental viability of a project.  We have the proven ability to provide these services while maintaining our flexibility and professional responsiveness.  

Value Added Engineering

Our independent engineering staff is technically trained and proficient in all engineering disciplines, including a balanced mix of professional engineers and MBAs.  

Our well-rounded, experienced advisors lend the extra “value added” technical due diligence effort that may include assessments of energy conversion/efficiency, technical risk, reliability, safety, useful life span, and maintenance requirements.
