It is with great sadness we announce that LKPB Engineers founder, Len Lundquist, passed away on November 24
LKPB Engineers founder, Len Lundquist, passed away late in the evening Thanksgiving Day.
Len attended Macalester College and the University of Minnesota where he completed his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. In 1969 he left the architecture and engineering firm of Ellerbe where he managed the Minneapolis mechanical department to start his own company. On February 5, 1969, L. A. Lundquist and Associates, Inc. was incorporated and the basement of the Lundquist home became the company headquarters. The firm’s first project was the 3M Tartan Park Golf Clubhouse. Len went on to lead the company to great success using his excellent mechanical engineering skills, keen business acumen, and a huge dedication to his clients. In fall 2007 AIA Minnesota recognized Len and LKPB for their outstanding contribution to the architectural industry for 38 years, with the 2007 AIA Minnesota Special Award given at their annual banquet. At the end of 2007 Len retired as a partner, but continued to work as an engineer for the next nine years until his passing. Len was a hard-working, one-of-a-kind, remarkable man and we will miss him greatly.
