Lan crosses the finish line in marathon “Habitat For Humanity” build
NEWBURGH, NY — Replacing suits and ties for work boots and hardhats, volunteers from LAN Associates spent a day in Newburgh, where they rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty to take part in the annual Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh 2018 Home Builder’s Blitz to construct two residences in just five days! The team of LAN volunteers, consisting of architects, engineers, and design professionals from the Goshen and Midland Park offices, helped construct the two attached homes at 21 and 23 Johnson St. “This is an event that serves a greater good and its impact makes a difference for so many people,” said Jim Diana, AIA, project manager at LAN Associates. “It is a challenging task to complete construction in only five days, but a fun one to be a part of. Getting our architects and engineers out from behind the desk and on site for the day really helps fuel their creativity and passion, while also giving back to the local community. We are proud to be a part of this year’s Blitz and we wish the families nothing but happy and loving memories in their new home.” LAN provided mechanical design consultation services to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh that will become a prototype for all future mechanical system designs and equipment selections specified for the organization.
