We are proud to announce that due to our remarkable growth and commitment to the greater Savannah area market, we have moved our Savannah office to a new location in Chatham County!
Our new location offers us the opportunity to better serve our clients and work with our valuable business partners. This location is right off I-16 and is conveniently located close to historic downtown Savannah.
We look forward to visiting with you at our new location!
We are proud to announce that due to our remarkable growth over the last few years, we are expanding our Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services into the Carolinas! Our new location will allow us to enhance our footprint and broaden our customer base. LONG will be offering our diverse set of SUE services and capabilities to existing clients, while also attracting new customers in the Carolina market. Our headquarters and main office will continue to be in Atlanta.
We are excited about this new market and territory, and we look forward to continuing our team’s growth!
We are pleased to announce Javier Benavides, who will be leading our SUE field team efforts in the Greater Savannah area, has officially transferred to our Savannah office. He joined us in early 2020 and has worked on multiple MMIP GDOT projects in the Atlanta area, including the West Interchange, Top End Express Lanes, and Eastside Express Lanes. In the Savannah area, Javier has worked on projects for the new Civic Center Arena, Forsyth Park Lighting upgrades, and SEDA.
Javier is currently involved on the Lift Station 166 Parallel Force Main project for the City of Savannah with our teaming partner, Hussey Gay Bell. LONG is providing SUE services for the design and construction of an effluent force main for the existing Lift Station 166. The current eight (8”) inch diameter, 7,700 linear feet force main serving Lift Station 166 is undersized, and the City of Savannah desires to expand station pumping capacity by extending a force main to Lift Station 159 (approximately 16,000 LF).
The SUE Quality Levels (QL) we are providing include:
QLD: Records Research / Data Collection
QLC: Above Ground Survey
QLB: Utility Designation
QLA: Test Hole / Pot Holing
We are excited for Javier and our continued growth and investment in the Savannah community!
For the month of February, we are happy to congratulate the following members of our team: Charles ‘Hubert’ Akins, Michael Schultz, and Karen Krakau. Mr. Akins is celebrating his 5-year work anniversary with us this month, Michael Schultz, having previously served at LONG for a couple years, is welcomed back celebrating one full year into his second tenure, and Karen Krakau is also celebrating her 1-year work anniversary this month. Dedicated employees like you are the foundation to any successful company. Thank you for all you do, and happy work anniversary!
