LBYD is participating in the fourth annual Downtown Open in Huntsville, Alabama – July 16-25, 2017. This year’s event features 27 putt-putt boards in front of businesses throughout Downtown Huntsville. This is a free event with the purpose to get people downtown, interacting with businesses in the area. Each business was given a month to create their putt-putt course from a blank board.
LBYD is excited to announce the opening of our newest branch office in Auburn, Alabama. With continued growth and success, providing civil and structural engineering services throughout the southeast, we are honored to expand our reach to better serve our clients. The new Auburn office is being managed by Structural Engineer, Brad Harrison. Brad returns to LBYD, 10 years later, bringing with him the valuable experience gained from working for the Auburn University Facilities Division as Assistant Director and then Director of Design Services.
Brad received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Auburn University in 1998 and his Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from UAB in 2006.
