Over time, pipeline, roadway, and facility infrastructure begin to experience wear and tear. Assessing its condition is critical to estimating its remaining useful life and cost efficiency.
Infrastructure performance is not solely related to age; material, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance are all fundamental aspects of proper function. LAN performs an evaluation of system operational characteristics, supports the development of capital improvement projects, identifies future monitoring/assessment requirements, and prioritizes rehabilitation or replacement recommendations.
In addition to infrastructure, building structures consume significant energy costs as they age. LAN works directly with clients to identify opportunities to become more energy efficient. Our years of experience show that major energy savings are not always achieved by simply upgrading to high-efficiency equipment. Our facility specialists also focus on the behavioral side of energy consumption and work with clients to customize and implement energy strategies yielding greater comfort, reduced energy cost, and increased profits.
