Mr. Elmore will play a role in assisting LEA's clients in Tennessee and other regions.    

Scott McDonald, PE, who serves as regional manager for the Knoxville and Chattanooga offices, said, "There is no doubt that Sam's addition will have an important impact on our ability to meet the growing demands of our clients.  Not only is Sam one of the principle innovators in the field of trenchless technologies, but his keen understanding of the regional players and area developments will provide a unique ability for our clients to access his talents and experience."  

Mr. McDonald expressed the firm’s desire to concentrate on the construction side as well as the design side.  "Sam is a key part of our strategic plan for Tennessee and the Southeast.  While our work has been largely focused on providing analysis and design services for local utilities and industries, the anticipated benefits of future economic development in conjunction with aging infrastructure issues in urban areas, allows LEA to be well positioned to bring an added dimension of value to our clients.”
