LBC Golf Outing

Here at Landau, we have been very fortunate to work with wonderful clients, architects, and subcontractors. Our work at Allegheny Country Club, winner of the 2016 MBA Best in Craftsmanship Award, was a challenging but rewarding process, and the club recently allowed us to plan a golf outing on their prestigious course. All donations, raffle proceeds, and 50/50 proceeds benefited the Passavant Hospital Foundation. It was a great way to say thank you, especially to those who worked so hard at the club, while donating to a wonderful local organization. See all the pictures from the event on our Facebook page. The afternoon began with a light lunch and a shotgun start at 1:30pm. Thanks to the impeccable organization of the country club, the entire afternoon ran smoothly, providing the guests with beverages and snacks throughout the course. The event was organized as a shamble, using the best drive after teeing off,  Heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were served afterwards, and the Passavant Hospital Foundation’s Anthony Savannah and Fay Morgan were present to thank everyone for their generosity and present the awards for the shamble.  We want to thank Allegheny Country Club for their guidance and organization throughout each step of the event, from planning to execution, which allowed the event to run seamlessly. A special thank you to First National Bank, M&J Electrical Contracting, and T.A.Robinson Asphalt Paving Inc. for generously sponsoring the food, bar, and on-course beverages.

2017 Evening of Excellence

We are thrilled to announce that our project at Allegheny Country Club won the 2016 MBA Best in Craftsmanship Award!

We want to thank Justin Kolanz, John Means, and Bill Paul from Allegheny Country Club, as well as Dave Urbansky and Jim Wallis from Perspectus Architecture for your patience and design ideas throughout construction. Of course, the project could never have been successful without Superintendent Emory Lukacs and Project Manager Andrew Marsic, both of whom displayed extraordinary dedication and perseverance throughout the renovations. It felt like every day presented a new challenge for the team, but it was handled efficiently and professionally. A special thank you to Wayne Crouse, Renick Brothers, and Sargent Electric for going above and beyond, always willing to lend a hand and offer their own ideas to make the construction process more efficient. Our team really made this a personal effort, which truly made it a success. read more

2016 MBA Awards

We would like to announce that our renovation project at Allegheny Country Club is a finalist for the MBA Best in Craftsmanship Award! The basement level in the main clubhouse was demolished and transformed into a new fitness area, Pro Shop, golf bag storage/repair area, and wine cellar/tasting room. A new staircase that matches the existing stairs was installed from the first floor receptionist area to the the basement level. Extensive mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades, replacements, and relocations were also included.  The project was designed to modernize the club while maintaining the original 1902 design, and extra attention focused on the finishes matching the existing club as closely as possible. In doing so, the transformation of the space is truly remarkable and flows with the original designs beautifully. read more

Passavant Hospital Foundation Scrub Run

Throughout the past year, Landau Building Company is proud to have worked closely with and supported the Passavant Hospital Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds to develop new hospital services and facilities at UPMC Passavant in McCandless and Cranberry townships as well as to provide health education and programming for the community. We worked with the Foundation for our annual Customer Appreciation Shoot in 2015 and 2016, with all proceeds benefiting the organization, and they are truly hardworking, wonderful individuals. Back in August, the Foundation hosted a 4K/8K Scrub Run/Walk at North Park. Landau sponsored two water tables for the runners and walkers, and some of our employees participated in the event. It was a great time for us and for the community! read more

Meeting the President

Golf is a favorite outing among various leaders and professionals, a way to relax, have fun, and network.  Landau superintendent Emory Lukacs was finishing up the last touches on renovations to the fitness and Pro Shop at Allegheny Country Club when none other than former President George W. Bush arrived for a day of golf!  That’s right, the former president of the United States visited the historic country club – and therefore our job site! read more

Crane at St. Margaret Hospital

Construction at St. Margaret Hospital, located on Freeport Road, is progressing quickly!  Landau was hired for the Emergency Generator #1 Installation Project, which should be finished next month.  A crane was needed onsite to lift the generator and supporting equipment to the roof and to the wall opening for installation. It can be a long process, especially with the rainstorm that hit the second day, but our team didn’t let their spirits drop or their work suffer.  Superintendent Jeff Bono couldn’t say enough how proud he is of all the workers on the job and that the work ethic of his men is outstanding.  Great job, guys! read more
