Neil Schaap, P.E., CFM, leads the Water Resources Department at PEC+, responsible for everything from sewer lift station design to Federal and State environmental permitting.

Since he began working at PEC+ in 2004, Neil has been involved in the design and management of stormwater BMP designs throughout the Southeast. The most interesting and challenging aspect has been the incorporation of Green Infrastructure into the designs for private sector as well as municipal clients.

In the fall of 2021, Schaap was promoted to Partner of PEC+. Though his duties at PEC+ do not change, this promotion is symbolic of the important role he plays as a leader in the company.

“Neil has always had an eye toward water and its resources since he began with us as an aspiring engineer years ago,” says Ken Wood, President. “Throughout his time here, Neil has continued to stand out in the company and as a trusted resource of information and critical thinking.”  

To be sure, Schaap was already a natural leader in the company. Following the historic 2009 floods, Schaap saw a need for greater involvement in the flood plain management arena. He attended training courses through GEMA and became an ASFPM Certified Floodplain Manager. Through the years, Neil has guided clients on no-rise certifications, FEMA map revisions, and Elevation Certificates.    

“The principals in the firm saw that Neil provided a missing piece to our leadership, as he brought a different perspective and thorough process to company initiatives and direction. For these reasons, we were pleased to announced Neil as the next principal at PEC+,” says Wood.

Schaap is an active member of the Georgia Association of Water Professionals, and a graduate of the ACEC Future Leaders Program. As a proponent of civic involvement, Schaap has previously volunteered for the City of Berkely Lake Planning and Zoning Commission, as well as the Gwinnett County Zoning Board of Appeals. He currently serves as the District 2 representative on the Gwinnett County Stormwater Authority.

Schaap grew up in DeKalb County and has resided in Gwinnett County for over 10 years with his wife and two daughters. In his spare time, Mr. Schaap enjoys fishing and kayaking, and following the local sports teams, especially the Braves and Yellow Jackets.
