Today, we are a leading engineering firm known for quality and responsiveness; we also have a proven track record of success as a Prime civil engineering firm. You could say that overcoming challenges has been our story since day one. Which explains why we’re so good at resolving our client’s problems.
From a small civil engineering firm purchased by Michael Sutton, P.E., in 1997, we faced initial resistance as an unproven, minority-owned DBE until we could prove ourselves through performance. And we have.
In 1998 we changed the company name to Infrastructure Engineering, Inc. to better reflect the work we pursue. We’ve performed civil and structural engineering for complex highway, railway, water management, mass transit and airport projects. We’ve completed both vital and high profile, world-class developments. Along the way, we’ve developed a reputation for INGENUITY. We take great pride in applying strategic thinking at the beginning of a project and overcome any obstacles that may arise, in order to not just meet, but exceed client expectations.
The benefit to our clients is the combined expertise of our TEAM; more than 70 diverse and talented engineers who work in five cities in the states of Illinois, Indiana and New York. In order to help enhance the lives of our clients, their customers, as well as our own employees, we stay involved in the local COMMUNITY around each office.
As we grow, we look for new opportunities to partner with our clients. Their success is our ultimate goal; it’s how we measure our own.

Our Community Support
Employees and the firm contribute to many community organizations as we embrace a culture of paying it forward. The giving includes founding a philanthropic arm of the firm — Infrastructure Engineering Foundation formerly Universal Agape Foundation. IEI President and CEO Michael Sutton, a former resident of economically challenged communities, created it to “give back.”
The Foundation supports programs and experiences for disadvantaged children and families.
The proof of our quality performance is made evident through the numerous world-class projects we’ve delivered from our five offices, Chicago, Peoria, IL, Indianapolis, IN and New York, NY.
