PIPELINE PIPELINE UTILITY INDUSTRIAL SERVICES SERVICES
FOSTERING MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS A repeat customer speaks for itself. It is a sign we earned the confidence of a new client and the opportunity to establish a lasting relationship. Many of our clients pursue master service agreements with our team, validating their trust in our ability to help them succeed. We start with clear and honest communication and hold to our values of high performance, quality documents, and design excellence. We believe in performance driven design that repeatedly proves its value for our clients.
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING For many of our multi-disciplinary projects, the largest quantity of drawings comes from our electrical engineers. Our clients appreciate our ability to move from concept to reality with thorough assessment of power demand, proper equipment selection, and detailed project documents. We strive to think like an owner, knowing you rely on electrical systems to operate critical equipment the moment an asset is put into service.
CAPABILITIES • Power Systems Modeling with SKM • Lighting Studies with AGI-32 • Distribution Power Line Design with PLS-CADD • Substation Interconnection Design • Electrical Control Building Layout • Voltage Drop Calculations with EDR • Ground Grid Analysis with SKM-Groundmat • Electrical Systems Procurement Support
MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Our mechanical engineers frequently take the lead on multi-disciplinary projects, having formed a broad understanding of the systems necessary for a sound design. For many of our clients, the mechanical piping system is the central focus and requires us to form a deep understanding of the regulatory requirements and operational goals of each project. We value early engagement to ensure the design meets the project goals. We continue to expand piping system modeling with 3-dimensional software and visualization tools that give our clients a virtual experience of their project well before it is built.
CAPABILITIES • 3-Dimensional System Design Using Cadworx and SolidWorks • Steady State Hydraulic Analysis with AFT Fathom 10 • Pipe Stress Analysis Using Caesar II • Hydrotest Planning • Mechanical Systems Procurement Support
Our civil engineers approach each design as a tailored plan fit to the conditions of the project site. This mindset allows us to create value by optimizing design elements such as site access, environmental impacts, utility needs, and the layout and selection of site surfacing. Our engineering creativity is supported by AutoCAD Civil 3D design and visualization software which brings 2D plans to life for our clients.
CAPABILITIES • Site Layout Using AutoDesk Civil 3D • Site Material Selection Fit for Intended Use • Stormwater Infrastructure Design and Treatment Analysis • Autoturn Vehicle Route Analysis • Facility Secondary Containment Evaluation and Design
From the foundation to the structural elements to the building envelope, our structural engineers ensure essential infrastructure is well supported for the service conditions. We are not shy to take on structural challenges that complicate design intent or construction activities. Our engineers are known for “getting in the trenches” with our clients, frequently supporting time sensitive activities such as facility outages and excavation shoring design.
CAPABILITIES • Equipment Lift Planning • 3D Steel Modeling and Fabrication Drawings with AutoDesk Advance Steel • Revit and AutoCAD Structural Modeling Design of: • Temporary Shoring Protection • Industrial Operation and Office Buildings • Piping Support Systems
Survey is the backbone of accurate design and a valuable part of construction layout and post-construction validation. We rely on our survey team to capture detailed site information, be responsive to changing client needs, and be well trained to perform their work safely in all types of work environments. Our survey crews utilize a variety of measurement and location tools such as Total Stations, GPS Rovers, Ground Penetrating Radar, and 3D Laser Scanners. We always find the right resource to capture the necessary information, frequently using UTVs, Argos, and watercraft to reach sites with restricted or limited access.
CAPABILITIES • Topographic Surveys Using Trimble GPS and Total Station • Boundary and As-Built Surveys • Laser Scanning • Aerial Drone LIDAR Scanning (Subcontracted) • Electronic Utility Depth of Cover Scans • “4-Way Sweep” Line Location Services
VIRTUAL REALITY LHB uses virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) to help the client visualize and â€œfeelâ€? what the design of their project will be like. VR and AR can help engage stakeholders in the design process to improve plans prior to breaking ground. This tool provides an efficient way to share immersive content with clients no matter where they are located.
LHB is a multi-disciplinary engineering, architecture, and planning firm known for our design leadership and loyalty to our clients. We go beyond good intentions and focus on measurable performance. We are specialists in: public works, pipeline, industrial, housing, healthcare, government, education, and commercial design.
