Savannah Cultural Arts Center wins Georgia AIA 2020 Design Award

Long Engineering provided civil engineering design services on The Savannah Cultural Arts Center, which was recently honored by the “Georgia Association of the American Institute of Architects” during their annual statewide 2020 design awards competition. Out of more than 140 entrants from across the state, this notable project was selected as a top award for design excellence. We are proud to have been included on Gunn Meyerhoff Shay’s team, and given an opportunity to play a valuable role.

The center has also received the Honor Award from the South Georgia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Located at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard and Oglethorpe Avenue, the Savannah Cultural Arts Center is a place where working artists and students of all ages can interact and participate in a love for the visual and performing arts. Completed in 2019, this approximately 42,000 SF facility includes a 400-seat performance hall, a black box theater, studios for dance and the arts, an art exhibit gallery, an outdoor performance space, and a partially restored Elbert Square.

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.

LONG Onsite at Atlanta Airport Projects

We recently had an opportunity to visit with a few of our Survey and SUE team members onsite at the Atlanta Airport where we have several active projects going on. These projects include site locations such as the new Hotel Development, Plane Train Extension, Midpoint “T” Terminal, Domestic Vehicle & Taxi Staging Lot, and Fire Station No. 32. Some of these sites are exceptionally challenging due to the ongoing aircraft, cargo, and vehicle traffic patterns. Field crews perform their daily responsibilities with the utmost care for safety and security as to not disrupt daily airport travel.

Our team members at Long Engineering have provided a wide-range of services for various clients. We are very familiar with the overall logistics and added precautions needed at the airport. These services have include Land Surveying, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE), Civil Engineering and Design, Construction Documentation, and Permitting to name a few.
