We see farther

What are we all about?

We’re engineers (civil, environmental, geotechnical, structural), surveyors, scientists, and GIS professionals.

We help our clients see farther, because we care about our communities and our environment and about you. We’re in this together. We think it is important to do what’s best in the long-run and we think it pays off to plan ahead.

At P&N, our work is in the details. We take the time to get it right the first time – alerting you to stumbling blocks that could derail your project. We believe roads, buildings, and systems work the best and last the longest when we see the big picture and have the same person oversee a project from start to finish. We keep our promises and our budgets – a good relationship with you is worth it.

That’s been our foundation for over 45 years. We’re honored to walk beside you and thrilled when you give us an opportunity to make a positive difference in your world.

  • I’ve been working with P&N for more than 20 years now and I have been impressed that they are always willing to do what needs to be done—they are right there in the trenches with us. They are very professional. They do everything by the book, but they listen to suggestions and are able to see the practical view point. Even if we have differing view points, we always come to a common solution and have never argued about anything.

  • Throughout all of the projects P&N has completed for us, their staff has shown a high level of character and professional competence. They work cooperatively with our staff and are able to communicate a technical issue in a way that a non-engineer can understand. Their record for staying on budget and on time is exceptional. P&N provides a high level of technical expertise to each and every assignment.

    Thomas Ecklund, PE Engineering & Facilities Director Gerald R. Ford International Airport Authority
  • P&N has a great reputation with municipalities and that’s huge for us, plus they work in the private sector. To be able to do both of those is quite special. The level of accuracy and the details on P&N’s plans are excellent and the quality of people we work with are top-notch.

    Craig Baker President First Companies
  • I enjoy working with all of the people at P&N. They provide good quality work and go out of their way to make sure we’re satisfied. They also have a good diversity of staff to draw upon. When the engineer I’m working with doesn’t have the answers, they’ll bring in someone who does.

    Pat Staskiewicz, PE Public Utilities Engineer Ottawa County Road Commission
  • P&N has been instrumental in designing, building, and maintaining a GIS system for our township. Their GIS team has always been quick to respond to both technical difficulties and new data development. We credit the expertise of the P&N staff with building the vibrant geographic information system used every day by our staff and public.

    Jon Mersman Community Development Director Holland Charter Township
  • Your dedication and work ethic seem to exemplify your belief that engineers serve the public. You have rushed out to provide assistance whenever your expertise is needed. You are a valuable asset to our team at the City of Walker.

    Scott Conners, PE City Engineer City of Walker
  • We have been working with P&N for more than 30 years; we know what to expect. Whether we need structural, civil, or soil boring services, P&N has it all. Plus, I like all the people I work with there.

    Neale Baumann President The Design Forum
  • I appreciate the P&N people; they’re professional, personable, clear and to the point. They double– and triple–check to make sure we get the end product we’re looking for. You ask for it, you get it.

    Brian Armstrong Director of Public Works City of Whitehall
  • I’ve been working with Prein&Newhof for more than 28 years. I continue to recommend them to others because they are consistent, on time, on budget and their pricing is competitive. If I have any issue, they are quick and professional in helping to resolve it. I rely on their Lab because I know they will ‘Get it done.’

    Don Popma General Manager BioTech Agronomics Inc.
  • Over the last 10 years, on no less than 30 different projects, the P&N team has managed to add a lot of value to our projects with their customer–oriented attitude and multi–disciplined team approach. It’s been very helpful to have one source to go to for our wide variety of civil engineering needs.  P&N is always there to help us explore a concept or get a drawing done so we can close a deal.

    David Smith President Midlink Business Park
  • Prein&Newhof was very helpful with our Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant application for a regional bike path. They provided  clear and concise information on a timely basis, which was essential for grant approval. Their staff has tremendous knowledge and experience that makes Prein&Newhof a one-stop shop for municipal engineering services.

    Lukas Hill Community Development Director Spring Lake Township
  • We have found Prein&Newhof to be attentive to our concerns and needs, willing to work with the public without compromising the integrity of the project, and swift to address any problems or issues encountered in the field.

    Jim Murphy Project Engineer City of Norton Shores
  • From day one, Prein&Newhof’s professionalism, courtesy, and genuine concern for each of our projects has created a relationship between their staff and our Board that transcends the typical engineering relationship. They diligently apply their resources to each of our projects, understanding the ‘why’ of the project as well as the ‘how.’
