AUSTIN, Texas, June 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Atlas Technical Consultants, Inc. (Atlas) through its subsidiary Long Engineering (LONG), a leading provider of Subsurface Utility Engineering (“SUE”), was selected for a Statewide contract to provide on-call SUE services by the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT). The newly awarded contract will remain in effect for three years, with the opportunity to extend it for an additional two years.
“Locating underground utilities is critical to the design and construction of roadways. Slight adjustments in designs can produce substantial cost savings by reducing utility relocations and project delays. We are excited to continue our long-standing partnership with GDOT and deploying our SUE expertise to support them in predictable delivery of their programs,” said Atlas CEO L. Joe Boyer.
Atlas has successfully worked on more than 300 SUE projects in Georgia.
