TREKK Design Group acquires mobile LiDAR firm Terrametrix, Inc.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas City-based civil engineering firm, TREKK Design Group, LLC, (TREKK) has acquired Terrametrix, Inc., a mobile LiDAR provider based in Omaha, Nebraska.
Founded in 2008, Terrametrix provides mobile LiDAR survey technology to clients across the country. LiDAR, which stands for light detection and ranging, uses laser scanning and navigation to provide safe and efficient survey-grade data acquisition and processing.
“Adding Terrametrix’s expertise strengthens TREKK’s commitment to providing holistic, common sense solutions through the use of technology and innovation, while helping us to improve lives in the communities we serve,” said TREKK Managing Partner, Kimberly Robinett. “This is an exciting time for mobile LiDAR, and this merger will intensify and strengthen our ability to serve our clients.”
Terrametrix’s five person staff will join TREKK’s survey practice, which provides traditional land surveying on a variety of transportation, wastewater, water and stormwater projects.
“TREKK’s experience in civil engineering design and its commitment to safety makes mobile LiDAR technology the perfect tool to expand TREKK’s services and provide added value to its clients. It’s no surprise the Terrametrix team has landed at TREKK.” said Terrametrix CEO Michael Frecks, PLS, who will now serve as TREKK’s LiDAR Survey Manager.
Terrametrix will operate as “Terrametrix, a TREKK company” for a six-month transitional period. It will assume the TREKK Design Group name later this summer. Terms of the acquisition will not be released.
