About Us

An industry thought leader

Constantly pursuing innovations that help you optimize the use of natural, financial, and human resources.

At Cavanaugh, stewardship through innovation is more than a tagline – it’s the way we work together to reduce waste and make smart infrastructure investments that support safe, sustainable supplies of water and energy for our growing world. What you do matters to many people – and we help you do it as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible.

Incorporated in 1995, Cavanaugh is a consulting firm that develops innovative solutions and programs that optimize water efficiency and waste-to-energy. We maintain our headquarters in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and satellite offices throughout the state, each offering our full range of services.

Cavanaugh has developed a culture of balance that focuses on the associate – the gifts that they have been given, and the families that they are a part of. As a team we truly live a culture of communication through our one-to-ones with each other and active listening that transcends to our clients. Fortunately, we have grown from a feeling of needing opportunities to work on to a position of evaluating if we are the right fit for the wonderful opportunities that come our way. The firm partners and the associate team truly understand the higher purpose going on here and our responsibility to use our gifts in a way that promote stewardship and bring hope and light to others.

The Path Ahead

About UsIn reviewing our current and recent project list, it is apparent that our primary market focus for these services centers around North Carolina (naturally) and expands organically to the neighboring states of South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Georgia.

In the Waste-to-Energy industry, the greatest opportunity in the near term is located domestically. We will continue to expand our reach in areas where the production, processing, and preservation of food are of great importance, and the best management practices relating to agricultural wastes leads to the recycling of organics. The creation of an energy product, in the form of biogas or synthetic natural gas, has been identified as a primary focus for our prospective efforts. Other key areas include the development of more efficient manners in the management of wastes generated by food production and processing activities, as well as inorganic recycling activities. Each of these areas offer the opportunity for our firm to lead stewardship of these resources through innovation.

To achieve global impact, we must embrace global communication strategies. Effective, efficient communication of our core values to large prospects and partners will help us share our innovative approaches. We have learned that the direct experiences we have by attending and presenting at conferences, tradeshows, and seminars provides us an opportunity to interact with a large number of people in a short amount of time.

Often times, the creative thought that we bring helps to bring buried infrastructure in full focus and wasted resources – water losses and bioenergy – into clarified thought and strategies for addressing that move it beyond “we need to do this” and deliver upon “we are doing this.”
