Happy Engineers Week!

February 18, 2013

Engineers are changing the world—all the time.

We dream up creative and practical solutions and often team  with other innovative professionals to better serve our clients.

The things we design matter.

We at Prein&Newhof are excited to celebrate Engineers Week by recognizing our own engineers. Some of the infrastructure we use every day has been designed by them. It is easy to forget, in daily life, the amount of innovation, imagination, and collaboration that goes into the systems that make our communities and our lifestyles tick.

Check out our social media apps for daily math quizzes courtesy of MathCounts.

February 21 is “Girl Day,” or Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day. We will feature our female engineers and the amazing things they have done and are doing.

City of Montague Takes Action to Save Local Road
