Long Celebrates Recent Bobby Jones Golf Course Renovations

The successful grand opening of Boone’s restaurant, located at the newly renovated Bobby Jones Golf Course, took place on September 5. Joe Severin and Shepherd Long, P.E., LEED AP were proud to be there to support the opening on behalf of Long Engineering; the food and atmosphere was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent reconnecting with a few old friends!

Our firm was proud to play a part in the recent Bobby Jones Golf Course renovations. These renovations included a wide range of improvements such as a 9-hole reversible golf course, a structured parking garage with tennis courts on top, a new clubhouse, and a new driving range and practice facility. Long Engineering provided full site design services including stormwater management and NPDES compliance for the entire 144-acre site with close coordination from the City of Atlanta and Georgia EPD for environmentally sensitive areas. Stormwater management measures included a micro-pool stormwater quality feature, bioretention areas, and a rain garden.

With the newly renovated Golf Course and Boone’s restaurant open for business, we encourage you to pay them a visit!

New At-Promise Center breaks ground in South Atlanta

Long Engineering’s president, Joe Severin, PE, LEED AP, joined more than 140 civic and business leaders as they broke ground on the second At-Promise Center, located in Atlanta’s Pittsburgh neighborhood. Attendees included Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, City Council member Joyce Sheperd, Georgia Power’s Bentina Terry, Carter’s Bob Peterson, and Coca-Cola’s Helen Smith Price. They were joined by neighborhood leaders Johnny Floyd and Columbus Ward, nearly a dozen youth enrollees of the Westside At-Promise Center, as well as leaders of the social service agencies who provide services to the At-Promise Centers.

The At-Promise Centers are funded by donations to the Atlanta Police Foundation, which has raised more than $7 million in its current capital campaign focused on the At-Promise initiative. The At-Promise initiative is focused on reducing youth crime by providing customized social services including therapy, counseling, mentoring, tutoring, and enlightenment programs to youth who have been involved in the criminal justice system. At-Promise seeks to divert them to a pathway of productive lives, and away from recidivism.

Long Engineering is proud to have donated our civil engineering design services on this amazing project.

At-Promise Southside is due to open in Q3 2020.  More Information.

Introduce A Girl To Engineering

Long Engineering, Inc. recently participated in a half-day program known as ‘Introduce A Girl To Engineering‘. The program is sponsored by the engineering community and strives to engage and teach young girls about the engineering industry through fun, creative, and interactive activities. The program is for girls that are in upper elementary (K4-5), as well as middle school (6th-8th), who have an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

This year’s event was hosted by ACEC-Georgia and included engineering booths with activities, a engineering trivia bowl, a program for parents on preparing your daughter for an engineering education, and a tour of Kennesaw State University’s Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology. LONG’s booth was titled ‘Let’s Keep Our Water Clean and Our Fish Alive’ and aimed at teaching children about erosion control and the role it plays in keeping our lakes, streams, and rivers safe for us, in addition to the natural habitats. Additionally, LONG’s booth offered kids the chance to conduct a turbidity lab test on various water samples and discover how it affects water quality and whether it is acceptable to drink. LONG’s team, Rosa Santillan, EIT, represented LONG as she educated children on the civil engineering industry and how it shapes the world around us. From roads and bridges to the water we drink, civil engineers make civilized life possible.
