October 1, 2007
(HOUSTON – October 2007) Texas Construction magazine has selected LAN as one of the winners of its Best of 2007 awards program. The firm will receive the 2007 Excellence Award in the Public Design Category for its work on the City of Lubbock Southwest Pump Station. The award will be presented at a luncheon Dec. 4, at the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas.
The Best of 2007 awards program recognizes Texas’ top design and construction projects that embody client service, project management, overcoming challenges of the job, safety, and design unity with nearby societal and environmental elements.
The City of Lubbock Southwest Pump Station project was developed by Lubbock City leaders and LAN to cost-effectively expand the City’s water distribution system. The approximately $7.8 million project includes a new 14-mgd dual pump station to serve Lubbock’s existing west pressure plane and the new southwest plane, a 5-mgd ground storage reservoir, and improvements necessary to implement a third pressure zone within the City’s current water distribution system. LAN and its team provided design and construction management services, including hydraulic modeling, site analysis, pump station and transmission line designs.
“I am delighted that LAN has been chosen as the winner of the 2007 Excellence Award for Public Design,” said Brian Rice, LAN Vice President for Central Texas. “The award is a tribute to our team and the City of Lubbock staff who were instrumental in the project’s success.”
