Robinson Noble

Historically, Robinson Noble began as a groundwater-resources consulting firm. Founded in 1947 and based in Tacoma, Washington, Robinson Noble brought a scientific approach to the design, construction, and development of water wells in Washington State. We applied that same scientific dedication to regional groundwater management, permitting, and water rights assistance as Washington State’s regulatory framework developed. Today, we provide a full spectrum of professional hydrogeologic services to provide our clients with reliable water sources.

Our environmental remediation expertise naturally evolved as clients encountered increasingly complex groundwater contamination issues and sought our specific hydrogeologic capabilities. Over the course of several years and numerous projects, we developed a close working relationship with Saltbush Environmental Services of Tacoma, Washington, and they formally became a part of Robinson Noble in 2003.

By 2008, a growing number of our clients familiar with our hydrogeologic and environmental capabilities were asking if we could also offer geotechnical engineering services. After extensive consideration and searching, we eventually found a compatible geotechnical services company in Cornerstone Geotechnical, Inc. of Woodinville, Washington, and they joined the Robinson Noble family in 2009. With this expansion, we now have a full-service office in north King County, allowing us to better serve our clients thoroughout the northern Puget Sound area.
