Solar Farm with Long


Check out the attached pictures of the 1023-acre Agave Solar Field in Maricopa County, Arizona. Agave Solar was designed by Nicholas Sauer, EITDavid Mckenney, P.E.Ricardo Menchaca @Emory Redding, and Tepolak Seth, EIT Seth last year. The grading is almost complete, and piles are starting to be driven in. Part of the design included providing enough site storage to hold the 100-year 2-hour storm and the import of 1 million Cubic Yards of import fill dirt from the construction of an adjacent nuclear plant cooling pond into the overall site grading.

LONG also supported McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. during the project’s zoning application. A detailed hydrologic/hydraulic analysis for onsite and offsite flows was performed to document the potential impacts of the project on floodplain elevations.

This site was a challenge but LONG was able to exceed the client expectations.

A Hole In One!

Bobby Jones Golf Course has won the “Best in Atlanta Real Estate 2021 Renovation Award” by Atlanta Business Chronicle.

The golf course’s renovation was completed in 2020 and has transformed the course into the home of golf in Georgia.
The improvement includes a 9-hole reversible golf course, a parking garage, new clubhouse, and a signalized intersection for a new entrance off Northside Drive. Also included is the 23,241 square foot Murray Golf House containing Boone’s Restaurant, Georgia Golf Hall of Fame and the pro shop. The renovation included 6 surface tennis courts, and 6 tennis courts on the upper level of the 288-space parking deck supplementing the existing 12 courts at the adjacent Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, and a maintenance and cart storage building.

LONG provided the site design/civil engineering that included pedestrian/cart paths linking the Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, parking deck/tennis courts, Murray Golf House, practice facilities and golf course. LONG also designed the site stormwater management measures that included a micro-pool stormwater management facility, a bioretention area, and a bioslope filter.

Three additional bridges were required at the pedestrian/cart paths. LONG was responsible for determining each bridge’s dimensions based on stream width, developed bridge profiles and performed the hydraulic analysis utilizing HEC-RAS to analyze the impact of these bridges on flood levels, provided bridge scour prevention design and coordinated extensively with The PATH Foundation for their path system that encircles the golf course.

We are honored to see one of our projects being recognized by the by Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Chili Cook Off at LONG

Recently, we had our prestigious Annual Chili cookoff. From venison to pork, vegetable to chicken, the competition was truly fierce. But a one Miss Brandie Harris hailed above them all with her pork and beef concoction. She is granted bragging rights for the year as well as our fabulous trophy that #JacobMewbourne reluctantly handed over after proudly displaying this past year.

Thank you to all of our participants. And thank you for feeding the office for lunch 😉
