University of Texas Medical Branch IDIQ

Galveston, Texas

LAN's long-standing relationship began with the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) when Hurricane Ike blew ashore in in 2008, submerging much of Galveston Island, including UTMB's campus. LAN was commissioned to assess the damages caused to the campus and after the initial assessment, UTMB awarded LAN a contract specifically to address Hurricane Ike recovery projects. Based on LAN's assessment, the team recommended a set of short- and long-term solutions, which ranged from a simple cleaning and placing back in service, to completely replacing units. 

Since then, UTMB has continuously turned to LAN to provide a variety of architectural, engineering, and assessment services on an IDIQ basis under an open-ended contract. LAN also reviewed and updated all campus-wide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing specifications for campus construction projects. 

To date, LAN has performed more than 20 assignment projects for UTMB including:

  • Hurricane IKE MEP Assessments and Recovery
  • TDCJ Protective Device Coordination Study
  • Critical One Line Risers
  • Campus-Wide Filtration Study 
  • Levin Hall HVAC Energy Audit
  • Levin Hall Lighting Control Sepcifications
