Three P&N Engineers earn PE Licenses

July 11, 2018

Prein&Newhof is proud to announce that Tyler DeNooyer, Steve Taplin, and Lucas Timmer recently earned their Professional Engineer (PE) licenses in the State of Michigan.

To earn the PE license in the State of Michigan, individuals must earn a four–year college degree, pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, work under a Professional Engineer for at least four years (three years for those with a graduate degree), and pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam. This extensive process ensures their competency in the profession.

At Prein&Newhof, it is one of our values to build expertise in the fields we serve. We take pride in building a team of professionals who hold themselves to the highest standard.


Lucas Timmer graduated from Calvin College in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a Civil/Environmental Concentration. He came to P&N in 2015 after working at Spicer Group for a year and a half. His responsibilities at P&N include design and construction observation of sanitary sewer systems, storm water systems, water systems, and non–motorized pathways. Lucas is a member of the Michigan Association of County Drain Commissioners.
