NJBIZ recently announced LAN Associates as one of New Jersey’s Best Architectural and Environmental firms in their annual Reader Rankings. NJBIZ readers ranked LAN as the #1 Architecture and #3 Environmental firm in the industry.
Over the past year, LAN’s Architectural department experienced consistent growth, including a series of promotions within the department, and the addition of four Associates. LAN has over $100M worth of school projects underway and is nearing design completion for The Vista, a 199-unit retirement community for The Christian Health Care Center, in Wyckoff New Jersey. The new 22-acre community will offer 19 different unit plans, a pool, spa facility, fitness center, and three dining venues to support social interaction and wellness.
“We are honored to be ranked the Best Architectural Firm in the State,” said Ken Karle, AIA, PE, President of LAN Associates. “Receiving recognition, especially from the public, is a great honor and highlights the hard work completed by our employees. The recognition from NJBIZ is proof of the passion and creativity that our staff incorporates into every project.”
In addition to overall growth, including preparing numerous environmental impact assessments for various school districts, the Environmental Department advanced its use of innovative technologies including 3D modeling and actov groundwater remediation at several sites.
“The recognition as a top 3 Environmental Firm in New Jersey is a testament to our team’s willingness to go above and beyond,” said Steven Ramiza, PE, Vice President at LAN. “Our team works incredibly hard to ensure that a project can be addressed as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
Each fall, NJBIZ conducts an open survey for all readers to determine the best companies across 50 various categories. Thousands of professionals within the educational, healthcare, hospitality, and other sectors use NJBIZ’s website to cast their vote on this prestigious recognition. Despite the dozens of entries in each category, the Reader Rankings publication recognizes the top three firms in each category.
LAN extends their gratitude to the public and readers of NJBIZ for this recognition and congratulates all firms named to the NJBIZ Reader Rankings list.
