About Us

Estudios Técnicos, Inc. is one of the largest and most respected consulting firms in Puerto Rico. Our experience for the past 30 years has transformed our practice into a leading provider in disaster preparedness, management and recovery related consulting services. Our senior personnel have extensive experience in the local market and constantly provide business insight to several international firms and stakeholders.

The firm provides assessments, strategic policy advice, grant writing, grant management, program design, economic impacts, planning and GIS related services.

The firm has extensive knowledge in Commonwealth and Municipal emergency response management legal frameworks, structures and practices. Clients include federal, state, non-for profits and local governments, as well as businesses. We have worked extensively with several US federal programs such as CDBG, and other housing related programs.

Given that several businesses in Puerto Rico have suffered two consecutive hurricanes in such a short period of time, ETI has created a specialized unit capable of analyzing and forecasting business operations. Our expert economists and financial personnel have extensive experience in developing cash flow scenarios, distress exercises, forecasts and strategic planning. These tools will be highly useful for insurance claims and post-disaster business evaluations.
