Mark MaGrann, founder of Magrann Associates in Mt Laurel Township New Jersey has passed away.
The company announced his demise in a Facebook post with the following statement.
“On behalf of:
President & CEO
Dear friends of MaGrann Associates,
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of our founder, friend and colleague, Mark MaGrann.
A pioneer in the industry, Mark had the vision to create a company that is nationally recognized and has been influential in advancing the energy efficiency industry for more than 35 years.
Mark founded MaGrann Associates in 1982 out of a need to improve the energy and comfort performance of the homes people live in. He worked tirelessly to build his business and advocate for energy efficiency and building science, still only emerging concepts at the time. Mark drew on his experiences in construction, insulation, homebuilding and remodeling and tied them together with solid engineering to grow MaGrann Associates into the company it is today.
Mark was a visible and vocal presence in New Jersey’s state and utility sponsored efficiency programs, and a driving force behind the development of those elements focused on residential new construction. A strong advocate for technical standards, he was an active supporter of the Home Energy Rating System (HERS), served on the board of the Northeast HERS Alliance, and was involved in numerous national and regional green building initiatives.
In 2017 the Builders League of South Jersey awarded Mark the Joseph S. Van Osten Lifetime Achievement Award for his many years of service to the organization. Mark also served with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Advisory Councils on energy codes and related issues, was a judge for NAHB Research Center’s Energy Value in Housing Awards, a trainer for the NAHB University of Housing and a chairperson of the Technical Committee of the Insulation Contractors of America Association.
Mark will be sorely missed by all of us at MaGrann Associates. May he rest peacefully.
