Langan Delivers Projects that Sustain the Supply Chain
In the old days – like way back in the fall of 2019 – shopping online was more of a preference than a need. As a result of the coronavirus, with most of the world sheltering in place, e-Commerce has become a vital lifeline. That explains why fulfillment and distribution centers, including last-mile facilities, are deemed essential during the pandemic. At Langan this means supporting clients around the country with environmental due diligence, site design, traffic planning, and securing approvals at Internet speed.
“Our culture of responsiveness works well with delivering e-Commerce projects where speed is expected, but now with so many consumers unable to shop in stores, the demand for accelerating projects that strengthen our supply chain has increased greatly,” said Michael Golias, a Langan Associate based in Southern California. “Our integrated environmental, geotechnical, site/civil, and traffic teams work seamlessly across our 30 offices on behalf of developers and end users to get their projects to construction.”
Although e-Commerce is essential, the variety of projects being planned and built are by no means easy. Fortunately, Langan staff are well provisioned with secure, remote connectivity and robust software to work from home. Meanwhile, in the field, teams of engineers and surveyors are safely deploying to sites to gather critical data to advance projects from coast to coast.
Furthermore, Langan is proactively engaged in public hearings being conducted online. Project managers are communicating more effectively than ever with clients, regulators, and design/constructions teams while facilitating virtual meetings that propel projects forward. Successful e-Commerce projects have always been important, but the fact is that right now each and every link in the supply chain truly matters to all of us.
