Laurie E. Becht, PE joined her father in the family business in October of 1972 and has been instrumental in the growth and success of the firm ever since. She quickly grew into the role of Sr. Vice President and has served as Principal-in-Charge of MEP/FP work, and as Division Manager for our Headquarters MEP/FP Division. Early in her career, Laurie embraced technically challenging projects, examples of which included the thermodynamic analysis of industrial macaroni dryers, the design of evacuated tube solar heating and cooling systems and process well water cooling for a printing plant, and an energy audit for a major ice skating rink facility. Over the years, Laurie and her team developed a strong reputation for their expertise in the design of high-end residential and retail MEP systems.
The time has come for Laurie to shift to a new role in the organization. Laurie has transitioned to a part-time consulting position where she will continue to support quality control, special inspections, design conceptualization, and mentoring. She will, however, be stepping away from daily management duties.
Tim Will has taken over as our Headquarters MEP/FP Division Manager. Tim has been an integral part of the Division for 31 years. His contributions and participation have been a large part of the reason for the stability and growth of the Division.
We thank Laurie for her dedication and leadership, which helped guide us past our 50th Anniversary and has been integral to our continued growth and success. Please join us in celebrating a very special career, and in congratulating Laurie and Tim in their new roles in our organization.
