Robert E. Lee & Associates, Inc. is a full service engineering firm founded in 1956 by the late Robert E. Lee.  Bob Lee, as he was known, was born in DePere, Wisconsin in 1924.  He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering.  In 1959, Bob surveyed the layout for Lambeau Field.  He served as president of the firm until 1986.

In 1986, Richard Swiontek was elected president of Robert E. Lee & Associates.  Rich served in this position until 2003.  At that time, the Company’s Board of Directors elected Lee Novak to replace him as president.  Lee served until 2012, when Mark Larson was elected to the position of president.


In its early years, Robert E. Lee & Associates provided civil engineering and surveying services in an office facility located on the northwest corner of Broadway and Dousman Streets in Green Bay.  The firm outgrew its first site by the mid-1980s, and in 1986, 26 employees made the move to the southeast corner of Highway 172 and Webster Avenue.  REL remained at 2825 S. Webster Avenue until 2002.  In November 2002, Robert E. Lee & Associates and its 50 employees relocated to a newly constructed office at 1250 Centennial Centre Boulevard in the Village of Hobart, where we remain today.


Robert E. Lee & Associates acquired Northern Environmental Services (NES) in 1999.  This association offers clients a comprehensive resource management approach to natural resource planning and management projects, that integrates land use planning, engineering, surveying and ecological services offered by our firm.

Robert E. Lee & Associates has grown and has established itself as a leader in providing engineering, environmental, and ecological services. The firm has an outstanding record of providing superior quality services to its clients.  The growth and reputation of the firm are the direct outcome of individual efforts and close cooperation by all of the employees.  The future success of the firm depends upon the continuation of these efforts and adherence to the highest professional standards and ideals.
