The Springfield, Illinois Office
Leading the IEI Team in Springfield
“We win Prime projects,” says Operations Manager Thu Truitt, who leads both the Springfield and Peoria offices of IEI. “That’s because we always provide our A team. We’re always available when our clients need us.”
Thu has 20 years of experience with federal, state, municipal and private sector clients, leading site, road and bridge projects from conception through design, permitting and construction completion.
When not at the office, Thu often speaks in local high school classrooms. She explains to students that civil engineers design outside the walls of a building – the roads, utilities, grading, stormwater drainage, etc. Thu volunteers as a member of Engineers Without Borders and the Society of Women Engineers. She also served previously with the Peace Corps.
