Elmwood Park-based Langan Opens Houston, Texas Office

Elmwood Park-based Langan Engineering & Environmental Services announces the opening of its Houston office. As the firm’s first location in Texas, Langan strengthens its commitment to supporting clients and partners in the oil and gas industry, while also providing its integrated suite of engineering and environmental services to the real estate development market in the greater Houston region and throughout the state.

Langan’s Houston office – located at 16225 Park Ten Place in the energy corridor of Houston – is led by W. Kyle Bogardus, PE, Senior Associate, and Chip Day, Senior Project Manager. Principals Gregory Elko, PE and Rory Johnston, PE work closely with the Texas team setting strategy and managing Houston-based projects, which span various oil and gas markets around the U.S. In fact, the firm is well-positioned to provide local expertise in three prominent shale plays: Marcellus, Utica, and Bakken, via Langan’s existing offices in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Bismarck.

“Our nation’s economic future is connected to oil and gas, and the heart of that industry is in Houston,” said David T. Gockel, President/CEO, Langan. “We already support significant O&G projects around the country ranging from exploration to transmission to remediation, so being in Houston puts us closer to more clients and facilitates our ability to bring value to their business. The Langan local team is fully committed to Houston, and we look forward to being a Texas firm far into the future.”

In addition to applying its consulting expertise to the O&G industry, Langan is providing geotechnical, site/civil, and environmental engineering services to developers and architects in Houston, where many existing clients and partners are re-vitalizing the city and re-shaping its skyline.

“Langan has long recognized Texas as a great place to practice, and I am proud to plant my roots here in Houston,” said Bogardus, a military veteran who performed two tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq/Kuwait as a civil engineer during his 15-year career. “As one of the fastest growing metropolitan markets in the country, opening an office in Houston and staffing it with technical experts familiar with the local jurisdictions and environmental conditions makes strategic sense for our firm and we will no doubt help our clients achieve their goals anywhere they need our services.”
