This post is the first in a series introducing readers to the different TLG offices across the West.
The Langdon Group (TLG) was born in 1997 at the J-U-B ENGINEERS corporate headquarters in Boise, in response to the growing need for better, more collaborative, community based solutions for complex civil engineering project.
While TLG’s reach has grown to spawn 5 additional offices, so has the Boise office’s role as the company’s northwest hub, providing services to clients in virtually all western states.
Senior Project Manager Bryant Kuechle manages the Boise office, which includes Project Manager, Elizabeth Spaulding and two field office project managers in Pocatello, Idaho (Andrea Gumm) and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (Gemma Puddy).
As staff has grown, so has the diversity of projects being managed out of Boise. Here is just a sampling of what is currently on our plate:
- Elizabeth is leading the City of Nampa’s Urban Waters Stormwater Program for the EPA, which includes the development of a youth education program, rain garden and facilitation of a diverse steering committee, all with a focus on serving Nampa’s prominent Hispanic population.
- Bryant is managing public involvement for the design of a new freeway interchange in Jerome, Idaho for the Idaho Transportation Department. The unique “Divided Diamond” design was developed in direct response to the needs and interests of the community. Scheduled for construction in 2020, the new interchange will be unlike anything the public has experienced.
- As the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s on-call collaborator, Elizabeth manages TLG’s contract to provide everything from facilitation to process design on a host of focus areas including, HIV-AIDS working groups, sexual assault prevention, hepatitis care, and housing weatherization for low-income populations.
- Bryant travels to Burns, Oregon every month where he works with a diverse group of stakeholders focused on developing specific, achievable, tangible and measurable steps to be taken to reduce the potential for and impact of mega-fires across the region’s sage-steppe habitat.
