About

For 83 years, more than 100 Illinois and Indiana communities have trusted Robinson Engineering to provide a full spectrum of engineering and related services, including standard civil engineering services in municipal water and transportation, as well as land surveying, environmental, water/wastewater operations, corrosion, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), mapping, and geotechnical drilling, engineering and material testing.

The daily needs of local municipalities are our top priority. We understand the unique regulatory agency landscape, infrastructure funding challenges, and community development issues faced by Chicagoland municipalities. Our professionals are equipped with the knowledge and experience to support municipal teams. We go beyond standard civil engineering services to help municipalities accomplish their visions for the future.
