The LG²ES staff are encouraged to look beyond the problems to discover and compile multiple solutions. Assumptions and interpretations are challenged by senior personnel, and all available resources are utilized. The Staff of LG²ES are required to “think outside the box”.

THE LG² ADVANTAGE
The LG²ES clientele has continued to grow as each discovers the
clear and distinct advantages that we at LG²ES brings to our projects.
We guarantee return phone calls within 1 business day.
We understand the importance of knowing the status of your projects and we understand the importance of communication with you during all phases of a project. LG²ES staff is committed at minimum to weekly telephone, email, or written

GIS systems produce much more accurate results
and save our clients’ money.
LG²ES integrates GIS technology into every project. The environmental aspect of
your project is geographical in nature. So, LG²ES uses ESRI’s ArcInfo and
Spatial Analyst on every project, and has the skilled staff to maximize its use
for the benefit of each client’s project. LG²ES has accumulated an extensive database of aerial photographs, vegetative maps, soils maps, topographic data, known locations of protected species and archaeological sites, as well as many other forms of spatial data that is essential in providing the most information as possible for your property.
The latest GPS technology makes field operations
more efficient, saving our clients’ money.
The latest technology in Global Positioning Systems (GPS) allows field staff
to upload aerial photographs and other spatial data on hand-held computers providing them with real-time navigational aids in the field. This eliminates costly recurring problems of finding property boundaries and guessing on site feature locations.
The use of this technology is not intended to replace surveying,
but it is an essential navigational tool.
Projects are overseen by experienced personnel in order to
eliminate errors and assure the best results.
All work, whether field operations or report production, is overseen by
experienced personnel who are specialists in their respective fields. All products and submittals are further reviewed by company principals and senior personnel
to assure technical accuracy and product quality.
