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.
