Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam (LAN), is the firm of record for the TIRZ 17 CIP, Lumpkin Road and Westview Detention Basin Improvements. Early in the design phase it was determined that a major transmission water line connector would be impacted. To complicate matters a private utility line was in conflict. LAN engineers worked diligently with all parties involved to assure that the impact was minimized, time constraints were met and the project moved forward according to schedule.
