SR 11 Bridge Replacement in Monroe, GA

SR 11 Bridge Replacement:

LONG was responsible for roadway construction plans for the replacement of the existing bridge on SR 11 over Apalachee River just north of Monroe, Georgia. With a project length of approximately 0.6 miles, the project had several historical and environmental resources to avoid during the design. The existing bridge, constructed in 1942, was replaced with a new offset bridge while maintaining two lanes of traffic and staged construction throughout the duration of the project. State Route 11 at this location is a rural two-lane roadway with 12′ travel lanes and rural shoulders.

Flyover of Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry

The $26.5 million Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry project is the largest greenspace in the City of Atlanta. We have been a proud member of Reeves Young’s team, providing the civil design services for this 280-acre park. This project will 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, parking lots, a Grand Lawn, green infrastructure stormwater management, accessible trails, and a spectacular overlook to view the quarry reservoir.

LONG has provided the design of all roadways, grading, and drainage plans as well as sediment, erosion and pollution control plans for Phase 1A of the project that encompassed 20 acres. Phase 1B included the addition of a 166-space parking lot that drains to 6 bioretention ponds and infiltration trenches, a Grand Lawn, a second restroom building, a pavilion and 6,800 feet of accessible trails. LONG is currently entering Phase 1C of the project with the design of an additional mile of trail rim that will go around the top of the Quarry.

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.

Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design at Georgia Tech received ENR Southeast’s 2020 Best Green Project Award!

The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design recently received the ENR Southeast’s 2020 Best Green Project Award! LONG was a proud member of Lord Aeck Sargent‘s team, providing civil engineering services for this ambitious green infrastructure project on Georgia Tech’s campus that was a Project of the Year finalist.

Embracing the most rigorous building performance standards in the world, the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is a multi-disciplinary building intent on becoming the first Living Building Challenge certified facility in the Southeast.

This 47,000 s.f. building uses just one-third the energy of a similar building, generates more electricity than it uses on an annual basis from solar panels on its roof, and captures and treats rainwater for all purposes, including drinking. Nearly everything removed during construction was salvaged, recycled, or turned into another usable product. The project will serve as a living educational environment, providing hands-on learning opportunities that will be a model for the region and other identical environments worldwide.
