LONG Sponsors EIA at Georgia Tech

LONG is a proud sponsor of the Georgia Institute of Technology chapter of Engineers in Action (EIA). This program provides a team of dedicated students with the opportunity to apply their technical and communication skills to a hands-on bridge build project, all while connecting isolated communities across the world to new opportunities and essential resources.

EIA has constructed 85 bridges in 11 counties, servicing 150,000 previously isolated individuals worldwide.

The EIA bridge program is a volunteer, non-profit organization whose mission is to construct suspended footbridges in rural communities in South America and Africa, increasing residents’ access to schools, job opportunities, hospitals, markets, and freshwater access points.

Through the EIA program, students have the opportunity to apply technical skills to hands on experiences. Student university chapters lead the design process and are given extensive responsibilities in the design and construction process. These projects engage the local community in construction and project development which fosters a sustainable approach to addressing poverty.

Seven88, First Residential Glass Tower in West Midtown

The new Seven88 West Midtown, a sleek 22-level glass and concrete high-rise, is the first residential glass tower in West Midtown Atlanta. We provided civil design and traffic study services as part of Goode Van Slyke Architecture’s team, a renowned Atlanta architecture firm. This bold, contemporary architecture features thoughtfully-designed condos in one of the city’s most popular and walkable neighborhoods.

Each of the 279 residences and penthouses offer floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of downtown and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Homeowners will enjoy two landscaped amenity decks, which include a saltwater swimming pool and whirlpool spa, outdoor kitchen, dining areas and a fire pit, and a yoga lawn. Residents can work out in the state-of-the-art fitness center or visit nearby greenspace including the Atlanta Beltline Westside Trail and new Westside Quarry Park.

These amenities will introduce an impressive addition to the neighborhood, which has an excellent mix of restaurants, retail and entertainment set in a historic district coupled with the nationally acclaimed Georgia Tech campus.
