ABOUT APEX

Founded in 2003 with the vision of creating an engineering firm that would deliver great client service. From the beginning, we’ve operated under the idea that the quality of our work will speak for itself.

 

Through the years, the firm has grown and changed. In 2012, we moved our offices from Merriam, Kansas to the Crossroads Arts District in Kansas City, Missouri. Two years later, in 2014, Apex opened its branch in Denver, Colorado. Starting with three employees, this branch has more than doubled in size in the years since its opening.

The next year, in 2015, Apex opened its branch in Lawrence, Kansas. This branch allows us to better service clients in Eastern and Central Kansas.

Further expansion saw us open an office in Austin, TX in 2019.  This office better positions us to serve our clients across the country.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our Mission

Apex delivers buildable, logical, and efficient structural designs.  By producing a quality set of drawings, then standing behind them during the entire construction process, we set ourselves apart from other structural firms.  We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and creativity in construction administration, coming up with out of the box solutions to in-field challenges.  Our unrivaled customer service speaks for itself.

Our Vision

We will change the landscape of the cities and towns where we work by providing creative solutions with quality engineering.  We will work hard to establish and maintain great relationships with our exceptional clients.  In our work, we will promote the engineering profession in a positive light by maintaining the highest ethics and giving back to our communities.  We are proud of the work we do and maintain a work culture where people are honored to call Apex their home.

Our Guiding Values

Our Team: Without our team of talented and committed individuals, Apex would not exist.  The quality, capacity and integrity of the people we hire, retain and promote defines Apex as a company.  We support our team in their continued growth through mentorship and professional development opportunities. Serving our clients, delivering on projects, and solving engineering problems are all team sports.  We are better together than as individuals.   


Efficient Design: We focus making sure every project is efficient, buildable and logical in its design.  By making this commitment in every project, we help our clients realize cost savings in materials and construction time.


Architectural Intent: Every step of the way, we try to preserve your vision in the project.  Whether through a formal kick-off meeting or a quick phone call, our goal is to maintain an open line of communication to make sure that structural elements reinforce, rather than detract from the project aesthetics.  We collaborate internally with team members and externally with clients, contractors and property owners wherever possible to deliver a better project.


Tenacity: As engineers, we frequently face challenges that seem impossible.  Determination and persistence in solving problems and approaching all aspects of our business is a defining characteristic of our company and the people we hire.  As it applies to client service, Apex will keep at the problem until we find the best solution for our clients’ needs.  Our clients trust us to make the best engineering decisions for their projects.  We hold ourselves and each other accountable to our clients.
 

Unrivaled Service: All our core values come together to support our goal to provide exceptional, best in class service to clients.  Any engineer can give you a design and the invoice that goes along with it.  We want to be the engineer that partners with you during the design process, through construction, and after completion.  It is the personal touch and an open line of communication that set Apex apart from other firms.
