LONG Awarded As-Built Survey for East Lake Golf Club

With the PGA TOUR’s 2021 FedEx Cup Playoff coming to conclusion this week, we thought it fitting to announce a recent award to provide complete, up-to-date as-built survey of the East Lake Golf Club. LONG (an Atlas Company) is grateful to have been awarded this contract for this historic club and home course of the legendary golfer Bobby Jones. We have proudly provided land surveying services to East Lake since 2017.

Located here in Atlanta, GA, East Lake Golf Club has been the permanent home of the TOUR Championship since 2005. The tournament was first played at East Lake in 1998 and has been held at East Lake 20 times since then. The TOUR Championship is the culminating event of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedEx Cup, with only the top 30 players on the points list qualifying each year.

We are excited for the opportunity to once again provide these professional surveying services for this historic site. Check out some of the course images below!

LONG Sponsors at Great Oaks Bank 11th Annual Golf Tournament

LONG was recently honored to serve as an Eagle Sponsor in the 11th Annual Golf Tournament at The Ford Plantation, presented by Great Oaks Bank.

Sean Byers, Our Vice President of Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) and Survey, represented LONG along with our SUE friends Chris Burke and P. Nathan Brown, RLS with Hussey Gay Bell, and Chris Marsengill, PE, PTOEwith Kimley Horne.

It was a beautiful day on the course. We were happy to offer cold beverage refreshments and jovial conversation to the passing golfers. We also provided fun incentives for our tent guests by giving out a sleeve of LONG blue golf balls for anyone who could hit the green on their first swing, and the Chamber of Commerce offered prizes for those who could hit closest to the hole using a child-sized golf club.

We had a blast!

Kendeda Named One of the Greenest Buildings in the World

It’s official – the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is one of the greenest buildings in the world!
 
The Georgia Institute of Technology announced on Earth Day 2021 that The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design earned Living Building Challenge certification, the world’s most ambitious and holistic green building achievement. LONG was proud to provide the civil engineering services on this $30M, eco-friendly project.
 
The Kendeda Building is among the greenest in the world for being “net positive” with its use of energy and water. In other words, the Kendeda Building generates more energy and captures more water than it uses.
 
The “Living Building” certification came after a 12-month performance period, where the building generated 225 percent of the energy needed to power all of its electrical systems from solar panels on its roof. It also collected, treated, and infiltrated 15 times the amount of water needed for building functions. It had to meet all seven “petals” in the Living Building Challenge – Place; Water; Energy; Health and Happiness; Materials; Equity and Beauty.

Honoring Ellen Long

In honor of Ellen Long, our firm’s founder and former president, we celebrate today what would have been Ellen’s 60th birthday. Our beloved founder sadly passed away in July 2019. Under her leadership, Long Engineering successfully grew to what it is today – we know that Ellen would be proud to see how far her company has come since it’s inception in 1997.

Ellen was a talented leader and mentor to people in her industry, and a joy to all those that met her. Ellen’s impact and presence were felt throughout the AEC community, and she continues to be greatly missed by all.

A life well lived leaves others enriched. Even though Ellen left us too soon, her life touched all of ours deeply. We remember her with joy in our hearts today.
