LONG at KSU Career Fair

This month, LONG was honored to host a booth at Kennesaw State University (KSU)’s Career Fair. A few of our Civil Engineers, Robert Frere, EIT, Nicholas Sauer, EIT, and Ricardo Menchaca, EIT, helped organize the event booth and were able to meet with KSU students and chat about their career opportunities.

The KSU Career fair serves to connect many of the nation’s top companies with KSU’s brightest students and alumni for internship, co-op, full-time, & part-time positions. LONG was excited for the opportunity to share a little bit about our company, and to shake hands with these bright students.

LONG Completes SUE Services for Southern Company Gas in Cherokee County

LONG recently provided the Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services for the 5.8 mile Phase II segment of this Wade Green Road project for Southern Company Gas in Cherokee County, GA.

SUE field designations for all subsurface utilities were performed beginning at Baker Rd and Jiles Way and ending at GA Hwy 92 and Wade Green Rd for the installation of a new 12” high-pressure gas main to bring greater capacity to the area for growing demand. The proposed pipeline route was dense with underground utility congestion including fiber optic, water, telecom & power all within the limits of proposed design. LONG’s team coordinated with the design team throughout to ensure incorporation of the existing utility conditions into the overall database survey for design. LONG provided SUE QLB (Designating) & SUE QLA (Test Holes) per ASCE 38-02 SUE standards.

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 and Plays at AGL Charity Golf Tournament

LONG recently had the privilege of participating in and sponsoring the annual Atlanta Gas Light Charity Golf Tournament at the Country Club of the South.

We were blessed to dodge the rain as Atlanta Gas Light employees, volunteers and partners collaborated to raise $125,597 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s), one of the nation’s premier pediatric medical facilities. This year’s contribution brings AGL’s total to $350,000 in Children’s funding over the last four years.

LONG is proud to support this Charity, as the event provides the funding needed to continue the research, training and innovation on which Children’s has built its reputation.

Check out our team below!

Atlanta’s Westside Park Makes Its Debut

After fifteen years of planning and construction, Atlanta’s largest park is finally making its debut today. Locals will gather with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of Westside Park Phase I.

LONG is proud to have provided civil site design for this project, as well as surveying services. The $26.5 million Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry is 280 acres, the largest greenspace in the City of Atlanta. It will also be transformative for Westside neighborhoods and become the home of a critical 2.4-billion-gallon backup source of drinking water for the city.

Park elements include a grand entrance, circulation drives, multiple rain gardens, a playground, parking lots, a grand lawn, and a spectacular overlook to view the quarry reservoir, trails and Mercedes Benz Stadium.

LONG is excited for this milestone completion and is currently designing the south trail extension connecting Westside Park to Woodson Park Academy, Grove Park Community, and Proctor Creek Trail.
