As part of our growth plans, LJB has strategically opened offices in new geographic regions during the last several years. To further our efforts in these new markets, we have added three key team members who are focused on serving our clients and communities in these locations.
The LJB Houston office opened in September 2014 to better serve our growing client base in the Gulf Coast and Texas Triangle regions. To add depth to our staff in Houston, we recently welcomed Amy Patrick, a senior structural engineer, who will provide structural design on commercial building projects, including LJB’s tilt-wall structures in the Houston area for clients such as Powers Brown Architecture and E.E. Reed Construction. She will also provide fall protection consulting to LJB’s industrial and petrochemical clients in the Gulf Coast region. Additionally, Amy will support the growth of LJB’s Houston office through the cultivation of new clients in the Texas Triangle region.
With a focus on addressing the transportation and public works demands of a high-growth area, LJB has also recently expanded into North Carolina. After a 30-year career with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Roberto Canales has joined the LJB team in the Raleigh-Durham area, serving as a project manager and civil engineer. He is based in Raleigh, but will support our efforts across the state—including work with ZAPATA-LJB, PLLC, which is based in Charlotte.
LJB is also cultivating business in our growing Cleveland, Ohio, office with the addition of experienced traffic engineer, Lynn Egensperger. She has served as a project manager for civil engineering projects for more than 30 years, and has special expertise in traffic signal design, traffic impact studies, trip generation reports, speed studies and traffic control marking and signage plans.
