LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
2017 IS STRONG LJA is a unique place. We are home to 670 people in 25 offices - and growing - providing nearly 270 different services and solutions for every client across the globe. We have a strong presence in the southern United States, but did you also know we have designed infrastructure with construction costs of over $1 Billion in the Middle East? Yes, LJA is global.
We take our talent and resources wherever and whenever they are needed. 2016 saw a lot of firsts. We won the Trifecta Award for the first time from Zweig Group which is given to firms that rank as a Hot Firm, a Best Firm to Work For, and receive Marketing Excellence awards. Achieving these accolades allowed us to springboard off an extremely successful 2016, and position us for the years ahead. We are growing our service offerings and geographic reach even farther, welcoming new staff, observing the kickoff of major projects, and celebrating our 45th anniversary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grow or dieâ&#x20AC;? is our motto, and 2017 is stronger than ever.
Clearly, there has never been a better time to be at LJA Engineering. Our 45th anniversary celebrates you, the employees and clients of LJA. Without you, we would not be who we are or where we are. Thank you for your support and years of trust. We look forward to the next milestone, building civilization, and creating better lives for staff, clients, and communities.
Calvin Ladner, PE President and CEO LJA Engineering
â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main ingredient of our success that has fueled our growth stems from the great employees and clients of LJA. Thank you!â&#x20AC;? - Calvin Ladner, PE, President and CEO

and heart. We will recover better than before.
LJA recently asked David Jarvis, senior vice president of John Burns Real Estate Consulting, for his key insights into the industry impacts we can expect from Hurricane Harvey. Among the most significant included increased labor costs, 5+ years of rebuilding, and growth in new construction volume in the next two years. Using other hurricanes as case studies for these “history lessons,” Jarvis foretold an uptick in land development and construction along the Texas Gulf Coast. His other predictions for 2018 lead us to believe that the immediate future looks good. Developers have a right to be optimistic. Houston’s residential sector is still picking up, and the economy is looking strong based on employment (40,900 new jobs fueled by population growth) and new home sales (30,700 predicted for 2018, an expected 8% increase year over year).
Hurricane Harvey reinforced what we have known in our firm all along, how truly critical our designs are in the communities we serve. We are entrusted to protect the lives and personal property of the public.
Jim Moehlman, PE Director of Land Development Join Us! LJA offers our clients two opportunities to hear valuable insight into the local, national, and global economies from local experts. Our LJA Economic Forecasts in the spring and fall are signature events that are eagerly anticipated year after year. Reaching crowd capacity, LJA hosts several elected officials, major land developers and builders, financial advisors, and local legal counsel whose practices are affected by the state of the economy.

THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB
Have you ever... ...entered a new market area and wished there was a system to get you up to speed quickly? ...wanted to investigate a specific property using data, analysis, and exhibits enabling you to review the property in depth before visiting the site? ...had a specific type of property in mind, but could not easily and economically evaluate potential locations? ...spent a great deal of time and money looking at a tract of land only to discover problems too expensive or time consuming to overcome?
LJA has maintained a major presence in land development for over 45 years, demonstrated by the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience on numerous projects ranging in size from smaller commercial sites to premier master planned communities. We have an excellent reputation for providing value-added service in land acquisition and property evaluations for developers, economic development councils, and municipal and state agencies.

PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE | Transportation
GRAND PARKWAY AT HARDY ROAD by Robert Barnett, PE, Vice President LJA provided preliminary and design phase engineering for the direct connectors from the Hardy Toll Road to the Grand Parkway/ SH 99. The Hardy Toll Road provides a third controlled access route from the north Harris County/Montgomery County area into the heart of central Houston. Allowing high speed interchange for traffic on the Grand Parkway is a key feature in linking SH 99 into Houston via the Hardy Toll Road. In order to meet the planned opening scheduled for SH 99, the interchange designs were prepared on a fast-track schedule and put out for bid within only seven months in early 2015 for $34 Million. On top of a tight schedule, we realigned the north bound direct connectors to avoid potential impacts to the newly reconstructed facilities at Harris Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dennis Johnston Park. Additionally, great efforts were taken to avoid creating drainage issues or environmental impacts to areas in and around the construction.
LJA managed the design team and provided planning and design for four of the direct connectors. 24
