We are proud to announce that due to our remarkable growth and commitment to the greater Savannah area market, we have moved our Savannah office to a new location in Chatham County!
Our new location offers us the opportunity to better serve our clients and work with our valuable business partners. This location is right off I-16 and is conveniently located close to historic downtown Savannah.
We look forward to visiting with you at our new location!
We are proud to announce that due to our remarkable growth over the last few years, we are expanding our Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services into the Carolinas! Our new location will allow us to enhance our footprint and broaden our customer base. LONG will be offering our diverse set of SUE services and capabilities to existing clients, while also attracting new customers in the Carolina market. Our headquarters and main office will continue to be in Atlanta.
We are excited about this new market and territory, and we look forward to continuing our team’s growth!
We are pleased to announce Javier Benavides, who will be leading our SUE field team efforts in the Greater Savannah area, has officially transferred to our Savannah office. He joined us in early 2020 and has worked on multiple MMIP GDOT projects in the Atlanta area, including the West Interchange, Top End Express Lanes, and Eastside Express Lanes. In the Savannah area, Javier has worked on projects for the new Civic Center Arena, Forsyth Park Lighting upgrades, and SEDA.
Javier is currently involved on the Lift Station 166 Parallel Force Main project for the City of Savannah with our teaming partner, Hussey Gay Bell. LONG is providing SUE services for the design and construction of an effluent force main for the existing Lift Station 166. The current eight (8”) inch diameter, 7,700 linear feet force main serving Lift Station 166 is undersized, and the City of Savannah desires to expand station pumping capacity by extending a force main to Lift Station 159 (approximately 16,000 LF).
The SUE Quality Levels (QL) we are providing include:
QLD: Records Research / Data Collection
QLC: Above Ground Survey
QLB: Utility Designation
QLA: Test Hole / Pot Holing
We are excited for Javier and our continued growth and investment in the Savannah community!

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.

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.
