TREKK began with a mission to Improve Lives.
TREKK’s entrepreneurial spirit starts with our founders, Kimberly and Trent Robinett, who decided to follow their dreams to serve others.
In 2002, they launched TREKK Design Group in their basement. TREKK initially offered civil engineering and lighting design services across the Kansas City area, quickly gaining a reputation for quality client service. Seeing an opportunity to better help the communities they served, Kimberly and Trent expanded the firm’s capabilities to include survey and wastewater services. TREKK also became certified as a SBA 8(a), Small Business Firm and a Disadvantaged/Women-Owned Small Business, and our growing firm moved from the basement to a room above the Robinett’s garage.
TREKK’s early projects focused primarily on transportation and site development work across Kansas City. But in the mid-2000s, as cities across the Midwest began focusing on deficiencies in their sanitary sewer systems, Kimberly and Trent saw an opportunity to create a new niche for TREKK – wastewater field services. That niche led us to open TREKK’s first regional office in Omaha to assist with that city’s combined sewer overflow program.
By decade’s end, TREKK had expanded into its own office in Kansas City. Soon after, we expanded into St. Louis, Columbia, Springfield and Memphis.
Today, TREKK offers a full complement of engineering design and consulting services, as well as technology offerings that help our clients work smarter. You can find TREKK’s 140 employees in eight offices across the heart of America, solving problems all over the country.
