LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
WELCOME 2017 LJA is a unique place. We are home to 650 people in 22 offices - and growing - providing nearly 100 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 has allowed us to springboard off an extremely successful 2016, and position us for the year ahead. We will be growing our service offerings and geographic reach even farther, unveiling our new website, welcoming new staff, observing the kickoff of major projects, and celebrating our 45th Anniversary. “Grow or die” is our motto, and we’ve started 2017 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

economic stability, and fuel growth. Whether it be the roads and bridges that keep us moving, ensuring safe water resources for our neighborhoods, or analyzing, planning, and designing systems that you may never see, keeping water, traffic, and people on the go is our priority. The common theme is that governing entities must maintain stride with population growth and provide the foundational groundwork that residents expect and businesses require in order to fuel economic development. LJA is ready to serve our clients because we are located within the fastest growing regions of Texas. With several offices in the Texas Triangle (the area bounded by Houston, Austin/San Antonio, and Dallas), we expect to support infrastructure development for many years to come. This region alone is projected to add 6 million people by 2030. In addition, our recent expansion into Corpus Christi allows LJA to provide signature services along the entire coastline and deep into south Texas. With growth comes infrastructure needs. Governments must provide new infrastructure as populations increase, but they need to maintain and operate their existing systems. Adequate funding remains a growing concern.

LAKE ANAHUAC EAST LEVEE CONTINUED... The resulting $7.5 Million, 5.2-mile long levee features a reinforced front slope to reduce future erosion caused by storm surge and wave action and was built to a top elevation of 8.5 feet mean sea level with a top width of 20 feet. Property owners who have historically lost two to three feet of land per year from storms and resulting erosion will reap enormous benefits from the new levee. The final design protects the 96 homes located along the project from all but two storms that have occurred over the last 120 years.
Nearly six years of preparation and construction went into the Chambers County projects in order to protect the community from future storms. We are proud of this project and the expertise we applied to mitigate future damage. LJA worked hard to help the community rebuild their lands and create the opportunity for growth. We cannot control the weather, but we can help alleviate some of the impacts that weather causes.

GRAND PARKWAY AT HARDY ROAD by Robert Barnett, PE, Vice President LJA recently 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.
LJA managed the design team, and provided planning and design for four of the direct connectors. 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 Johnson Park. Additionally, great efforts were taken to avoid creating drainage issues or environmental impacts to areas in and around the construction. The ramps connect a recently widened Hardy Toll Road to a newly constructed Grand Parkway/SH 99. This project was completed in 2016.

The biggest change came from the people who stood by me and challenged me to do more. They got me into surveying, and they are the reason I stayed.

SAME Young Engineer of the Year LJA offers congratulations to Tommi Jo Scott, PE, CFM in our Flood Control and Drainage division. Her hard work and years of unwavering service earned her the 2017 Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Young Engineer of the Year award. SAME works to recognize achievements of individuals or organizations in both the public and private sectors in the A/E/C industry. Tommi was nominated by an SAME committee. “I was one of those kids who knew what they were going to be when they grew up, a civil engineer. I went to Texas A&M for both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and entered the workforce putting my best foot forward. Luckily, I have had great mentors and coworkers who make constant learning a priority. My parents and LJA team have helped show me what it means to be a good engineer,” stated Tommi Jo upon winning the award.
Spring Economic Forecast Featuring Dr. Mark G. Dotzour Each year LJA offers our clients invaluable insight into the local, national, and global economies from local experts. This year’s Spring Economic Forecast with Dr. Mark Dotzour proved to be another popular event. Reaching crowd capacity, LJA hosted several elected officials, major land developers and builders, financial advisors, and local legal counsel whose practices are affected by the state of the economy. Dr. Dotzour’s presentation was an upbeat and lively conversation covering the residential and commercial real estate markets, interest rates, inflation, and job growth. His outlook included a widespread span across the globe, focusing internationally on Europe, China, Japan, and the Middle East and their impacts on the U.S. Economy. Locally, his presentation on rising U.S. home prices as an indication of a “new bull market” for single-family housing was especially inspiring for most of our audience. Other key points conveyed a strong and energetic economy, a rebounding oil and gas industry, and a stronger U.S. dollar. 20
Engineers Week 2017 Jeff Cannon, PE, VP What inspired you to become an engineer? My inspiration to become an engineer was the culmination of the efforts of several individuals and groups of people. My advancement into this profession is a small chapter in the very long novel known as the American Dream. It started with two parents wanting a better life for their son. I was raised in a blue collar home with both parents working hard to earn a living. They wanted me to have an easier life than theirs and saw opportunities the engineering profession provided. From the beginning, they encouraged me toward this profession. Fortunately, I developed the skills in math and science required for a career in engineering. Soon, I had teachers investing in my life as well as family, friends, and others in the community who offered guidance and encouragement. Advice from people you respect is a powerful thing. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a civil engineering degree and became a licensed engineer, fulfilling my parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopes. I owe them, my teachers, and my friends who encouraged me on this career path a huge debt of gratitude. I appreciate all of them.
