n 1978, PEER was established and built under Dr. Abron's belief:
Humans and the physical environment are fully compatible and co-exist to mutually benefit one another. This very philosophy continues to shape our problem-solving approach of taking every asset of the natural and built environments into consideration to provide solutions that are transformative, sustainable and appropriate.
Dr. Lilia A. Abron, the CEO/President and Founder of PEER Consultants, P.C. (PEER) is a trailblazer, a History Maker™, an entrepreneur. She is the first African-American woman in the nation to earn a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and the first African-American to start an engineering consulting firm focused on the environment and its environmental issues. She was also one of the first professionals in the field to suggest and demonstrate that sustainability initiatives can rapidly advance the condition of the impoverished sector worldwide. Remarkable achievements all on their own, they have collectively shaped the unique company PEER is today — a steward of the environment that continually promotes collaboration, builds a sense of community through its work and strives to create a better planet for present and future generations.
Since 1978, they’ve focused on delivering transformative, sustainable, and appropriate solutions to today's challenging environmental problems — using a personalized approach each and every time. Every day they are realizing their vision as a prosperous and productive environmental company that exceeds the expectations of their clients and employees, while delivering high-quality services that enhance the natural and built environments.
PEER, a full-service environmental engineering consulting firm, provides personalized service to their valuable clients, fosters and maintains long-term partnerships, and hires passionate and diverse team members. They remain true to who they are—environmental stewards—always looking out for the best interest of both the natural and built environments.
As PEER celebrates its 36th year in business, they are proud of how much they have grown and matured, starting with just 3 employees in 1978, growing to 115 engineers, scientists, planners, technicians and administrative professionals in 6 offices nationwide and 2 international offices in South Africa today.See more
