HOUSTON, Jan. 3, 2007-- The Texas Council of Engineering Companies is awarding its prestigious Gold Medal Award for Special Projects to the planning, engineering and program management firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc. The award recognizes the firm's work on the Greenspoint Waterline and Grid Extension Project in Houston. It will be presented at the Engineering Excellence Awards Gala in Austin, TX, on March 23.

The Engineering Excellence Awards recognize outstanding projects based on uniqueness, originality, technical value to the engineering profession, complexity and how successfully the project met the client's needs.

The Greenspoint Waterline and Grid Extension project is part of the city of Houston's Surface Water Transmission Program, and was adopted on a fast-track design and construction schedule to meet the January 2006 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency groundwater quality mandates. It includes 46,000 linear feet of 66-inch water transmission line and several distribution extensions of approximately 5,000 linear feet of 12, 16 and 20-inch waterlines. LAN provided full program management in all project phases including design, bidding, right-of-way acquisition and construction. The entire project was completed in 18 months with more than $5 million in savings.

"I am delighted that Texas CEC has chosen LAN as the gold medal winner," said LAN Vice President, Rafael Ortega, P.E. "It's a testament to the project's contribution to our community and recognition of the value we bring to our clients."

This is the second gold medal award that LAN has received from Texas CEC. In 2004, the firm won the award for its work on the IH-45/Sam Houston Parkway Interchange project.
