LMB Engineering

“As president and principal engineer of LMB Engineering, Inc., I have had the privilege of working with Mike R. Baker, P.E., Director of Rail Services at LJA Engineering, Inc. in numerous railroad engineering design and construction projects during the past several years. These projects include railroad bridge and track design and construction, feasibility studies, rail yard design and construction, drainage studies and railroad bridge project management and inspections for several domestic and international enterprises. LJA’s Rail Services Team possesses vast and comprehensive experience in the areas of railroad engineering, design and construction. This experience coupled with their in-depth understanding of project management and contracting principles, and their attention to safety and detail, makes LJA an extremely valuable asset to any public or private entity with an interest in the area of railroad engineering and construction. I absolutely recommend LJA Engineering’s Rail Services to any domestic or international company looking for a dependable group of professionals with a proven track record and a strong work ethic. Feel free to contact me should you need any more information, I will be happy to discuss the excellent qualifications of Mr. Baker and the LJA Engineering Rail Service Team.”

Pasadena Rail

“It is with great pleasure to offer my recommendation of LJAI as a quality provider of Rail Services. LJA Infrastructure provided exemplary engineering and construction services in the development of our premier 500 car storage facility in Pasadena, Texas. Their railroad expertise, engineering experience, contracting experience, integrity and can do attitude led to the safe and successful completion of our project in record time and within budget, despite having to deal with the effects of Hurricane Harvey. After speaking with references that knew and had worked with the LJAI team, we decided that Design/Build was the development model we needed. We couldn’t be happier with the results. The yard is state of the art, very high quality, with excellent drainage, security and designed for very efficient switching operations. These features mean high efficiency through minimal maintenance and operation costs. LJAI kept things simple for us, easy to understand and kept us well informed regarding the work, the schedule and the budget. They were truly our advocate from the initial planning of the project through commissioning the yard. They were extremely collaborative and ended up saving us a significant amount of money by continually value engineering and managing the process every step of the way. We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with LJAI on future projects.”

I highly recommend LJA Engineering as a quality provider of Rail Engineering Services.”
