P&N mourns sudden death of Mark Lee, long-time colleague and friend

We are saddened by the sudden death on Monday afternoon of Mark Lee, who worked for Prein&Newhof for 27 years.

Mark Lee, P.E.,  combined the skills of an artist, a diplomat, a humanitarian, a diver and an engineer. I saw and enjoyed all of these in action as we collaborated on very interesting and challenging projects. It was my pleasure and privilege to work with Mark, who was always looking for ways to make life better for others.
– Tom Newhof, P.E.

Mark Lee’s work as an engineer will stand the test of time. He specialized in designing water supply and distribution systems, pumping stations, wastewater treatment and collection systems, pedestrian paths, and park improvements. He used his interest in diving to help with below-level intake design and construction observation, as well as harbor and marina design and remediation.

Mark is known as a kind and humble engineer and friend, who devoted himself to everything he did, caring beyond measure.

Here are some of his projects:
