About LAN

At Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN), our purpose is more than what we do on paper and more than the delivery of a set of drawings. Our purpose is the impact our work has on people. A pipeline provides clean drinking water to us; a road connects us to family; a detention pond protects us from floods; and a school building educates our children. Every day, we are driven by knowing that the work we do improves, protects and connects us as communities.

LAN is a national, full-service civil engineering firm, offering planning, engineering and program management services. We deliver creative solutions, exceptional quality and measurable value for the nation’s infrastructure. We help our clients move their unique projects from idea to execution.

Commitment to M/WBEs

LAN’s principle of Invest in Each Other extends far beyond the workplace. In addition to growing our people, we are committed to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion within the firm and in our communities. LAN’s policy is to include meaningful Minority/Women’s Business Enterprise (M/WBE) participation in its projects, regardless of goals. This follows naturally from our selection process, which focuses on the client’s needs first. We select M/WBE firms based on:

  • Their qualifications, expertise and reputation
  • Our prior experience working with the firm
  • The opportunity for meaningful contributions to the project

As a testament of our long-term commitment to exceeding M/WBE goals, LAN was awarded the City of Houston’s first “Champion of Diversity” for exemplifying our dedication, support and excellence to the City’s Minority and Women Business Enterprise Program.
