By adhering to deadlines and providing solutions tailored to the District, LDG has maintained a strong relationship with WASD. Work includes engineering services for feasibility studies, building renovations, recreational fields, parking lots, and other improvements.
Examples of the type of work completed or currently under design or study include:

Structural Engineering

Cochran Evaluation of Distressed Brick and Stone
Investigation of displaced brick and stone masonry and moisture issues within the original building. We determined areas of distress within the building and cause of moisture issues and provided a report of the results with recommendations to remedy the situation and estimated cost.
Cochran Masonry Repair
Design of repairs to be performed to the building based on the investigation report recommendations. Repairs included replacing corroded lintels, replacement of cracked and displaced brick and stone masonry, addition of flashing under the capping stone, and repointing of the brick.

Civil Engineering

Football Stadium ADA Study
The Williamsport Area High School needed to provide accessible access to the lower portion of the football stadium to allow a disabled marching band member the opportunity to sit and play with the rest of the band. All of the accessible seating was located at the top of the stadium. Due to limited access points for construction equipment, a pre-cast ramp and platform section was fitted to the bottom of the concrete bleacher system. The selected construction type allowed for minimal disturbance of the athletic facility and a quick construction time that was completed in time for the first home football game.
Roosevelt Parking Lot
The parking lot and entrance drive at Roosevelt Middle School was in desperate need of repair. Due to the unknown future of the middle school, a limited budget was available. LDG met with the Principal and maintenance staff to determine the “best bang for the buck.” The parking lot had drainage problems that were going to be very expensive to fix. After a number of meetings and investigations, LDG came up with a creative way of bidding the project to establish unit prices for a variety of repairs. When the bids came back, LDG went back to the school explaining what different levels of repair were available with the designated funds. In the end the School District was very happy with the project and the cost savings realized.
