As a young engineer with a promising career in the early 1970’s, Terry Underwood utilized exceptional technical and interpersonal skills to develop strong relationships with a wide range of clients throughout the interior of BC. Based in Kamloops, in 1986 Terry decided to start his own company modelled around his practical and client-centric approach to municipal engineering. Along with partners including Rod Gobelle and Brian Rintoul, Terry set up shop at 1212 Victoria Street operating under the name T.R. Underwood Engineering Ltd. In the mid 1990’s, the company’s name shortened to the acronym TRUE Consulting - and with a growing staff and client base, TRUE moved to its current Kamloops location on Falcon Road.
Since that time, the ownership group has evolved and the company has continued to grow – including the creation of branch offices in Williams Lake in 2002 and Trail in 2009. In our more recent history, TRUE expanded to include a Land Surveying division in 2017 and an engineering branch office in Penticton in 2021. Regardless of size, TRUE strives to maintain the core values and level of service established by Terry and TRUE’s founding partners.
