In 2002, using the experience and knowledge gained from Twenty-Three years in the construction industry, Mil “Flip” Wallen, III – CEO of TRINITY – set out to form a new type of contracting firm with a mission to establish lasting relationships with its clients by exceeding expectations and gaining trust through remarkable performance. That mission is the same twenty years later.
Flip attributes the firm’s longevity and success to its employees. “Employing an experienced, proactive staff with diverse construction backgrounds to offer a wider range of construction services and expertise for each client has been my objective from day one,” said Flip. “TRINITY excels at technical and arduous projects, as it challenges each of our project team members – even me – to think creatively and continue learning to make TRINITY the innovative firm its known to be.”
Over the last twenty years, TRINITY has competed over 1,000 projects, contracted over $900 million in work, and has developed over 15 million square feet as a general contractor. TRINITY has been involved with some of the DC Metro Area’s most technical, challenging, and multifaceted projects. Whether it’s data center development, suburban office, commercial interiors, industrial/flex, multi-family, heavy renovation, public safety, medical facilities, retail and entertainment centers, and beyond – TRINITY can confidently say its clients have Experienced the Difference!
“After 18 years at TRINITY and over 35 years working with Flip, I can confidently say that I could not be prouder of how TRINITY has not only maintained its success, but also how it has become a beacon of knowledge in the data center, commercial office, heavy renovation, and industrial market sectors. After forty years in the industry, it is still nice to learn something new about construction and how to be more efficient. It’s one of the reasons why TRINITY has become known as one of the best contractors for extremely technical construction – because we constantly challenge our teams to think outside the box and to be proactive. I couldn’t be happier with the direction TRINITY is heading and am proud to be with Flip and Reg at the helm,” said Vice President of Field Operations, Raymond Blake.
“I’m happy to have joined TRINITY at such an exciting time with the firm. Hitting this milestone as a company is significant and demonstrates the commitment of all TRINITY team members. Throughout the past year we have made investments that poise the firm for strong growth as we enter our third decade. I’m proud to have known Flip for over thirty years; his integrity and determination are but a couple of the principles on which TRINITY has been built. I’m excited for the future, and the chance to continue growing the TRINITY experience”, said Reg Arnold, President of TRINITY.
TRINITY Group Construction, Inc. wishes to thank each of its employees, clients, subcontractors, family, and friends for their continued support through these last twenty years. To mark the occasion, TRINITY plans to celebrate the anniversary in late September.
