Our clients will now have more in-house services, will benefit from both LJA’s and L&C’s extensive knowledge of Central Texas, and our employees will have more opportunities. It is a win/win for everyone!” – Joe Longaro

LJA Engineering, Inc. (LJA) has acquired Longaro & Clarke Consulting Engineers (L&C), an Austin-based engineering firm. L&C has served municipal, commercial, industrial, and private sector clients in Texas since 1994. Reinforcing our commitment to position LJA to provide the highest level of professional services to the public and private markets in Central Texas, this acquisition broadens LJA's services in land development, drainage, flood control planning, and utilities studies and design.

Joe Longaro and Alexander Clarke started L&C after leaving LJA (at the time Lichliter/Jameson & Associates, Inc.) 22 years ago, and are glad to be part of the LJA family again.

“Sometimes, you go back to the beginning. We started our careers at LJA in the 80’s, but decided to make a go of it on our own. When LJA approached us about a merger twenty-something years later, we saw the benefits to both sides. Our clients will now have more in-house services, will benefit from both LJA’s and L&C’s extensive knowledge of Central Texas, and our employees will have more opportunities. It is a win/win for everyone!”
– Joe Longaro

With this acquisition, LJA now has more than 60 professional engineers, technicians, and environmental specialists located in Central Texas to serve the technical needs of local public and private entities, backed by the broad, extensive knowledge base of experience available through LJA’s staff of over 600 statewide.

L&C joins LJA with a great reputation in the industry with both clients and fellow professionals. The current L&C offices will remain and continue to service existing clients, as well as market LJA’s expanded comprehensive services. For more information on L&C, visit http://www.longaroclarke.com.

With offices in Houston, Spring, Conroe, Katy, The Woodlands, Galveston, Deer Park, Beaumont, Austin, Cedar Park, San Antonio, Dallas, and Corpus Christi, Texas; Jacksonville, Florida; and Omaha, Nebraska, the staff of LJA includes over 600 experienced civil, transportation, structural, midstream, rail and coastal engineers; hydrologists; environmental scientists/specialists; land planners; landscape architects; construction managers; designers; GIS specialists; technicians; and surveyors.
