Awards

On January 23, 2015, LDC was the recipient of two awards from Fairfax County at their Land Conservation and Tree Preservation Awards ceremony. LDC was the only firm that was a recipient of two or more awards. The awards honor engineers whose project best demonstrate excellence in erosion and sediment control design and implementation or a commitment to tree preservation in the county.

The first was for The Preserve at Scott’s Run, which is a community in Mclean, Virginia, and constructed by Stanley Martin Homes. LDC was able to prepare the design of the community in such a manner to preserve numerous environmental features such as wetlands, resource protection areas and a substantial number of existing trees.

The second was for Gambrill Pointe, which is a community in Springfield, Virginia and constructed by NV Homes. This community was located within a well-established neighborhood and the runoff from the proposed homes drained toward this adjacent neighborhood. LDC prepared an extraordinary erosion control plan to ensure that any construction that was required would have no impact to this adjacent neighborhood.
