Providing environmental engineering services as your trusted business partner for over 30 years.

We’re your trusted advisors for all things environmental, serving Midwest businesses and communities for 31 years. Our founder, Jim Holland, started Pinnacle Engineering to help industrial and manufacturing markets understand their relationships with the environment. In an industry where rules and processes are continually evolving, there was a need for common sense regulatory knowledge and a deeper understanding of the role businesses play.

A lot has changed in the past three decades, but our founding principles remain constant. As a full-service engineering and consulting company, clients rely on Pinnacle for our creative problem-solving, advanced technology, and consciousness of the environment. We provide straightforward solutions among a broad range of environmental, industrial, civil engineering, and remedial field services to aid the expanding needs of railroad, industrial, manufacturing, and energy clientele. Our expansive scope of services, combined with our advanced technical capabilities and our competitive cost structure, are reasons why we’ve earned and upheld decades-long relationships with clients and partners to this day.
