"This is a letter of reference regarding my experience in doing business with Lane Coburn & Associates (LCA). I personally have been dealing with LCA since 2008-2009 when LCA was added to our contract team for US Army Corps of Engineers Indefinite Quantity-Indefinite Delivery contracts that have been held over the past couple of years. My primary contact has been with Bill Waldrop, although I have worked with others from LCA over the years. However, it did not matter who I dealt with as they were always professional and courteous. Whenever Keith Lane contacted BergerABAM with inquiries regarding payment of invoices, he was always polite and well-mannered. We have worked with LCA for over five years and will continue to work with them well into the future. You may direct any questions or references to me at 206-431-2318." Aug 2014

"Dear Keith, Tactical Vs. Technical set the tone for the referenced project. It is all too common to rely on the field crews to initiate rigging and cable pulling techniques for a large project. However, LCa staff proved that your firm works beyond just electrical technical knowledge. At my clients request LCa provided "Tactical" calculations for installing over 5000 feet of medium voltage cable weighing 12 pounds per foot. The weight and lengths of these cables required precise cable pulling calculations to assure that ropes, cables and sheaves would meet the tensions and pressures during the installation process. In addition, LCa staff designed "Sheave Placements" for use by the Linemen during the installation. The engineering work by LCa was incorporated into the "Work Plan" that was written by Salish Group to provide a safe and professional installation of the 15KV cables. Previous work was halted for two months due to three near fatalities occurring in a very short duration prior to Salish Group becoming the construction management team on the project. With Lane Coburn's tactical approach to solving the aforementioned issues the project was completed on time and the client conceded that they were not certain the work could have been completed without proper engineering assistance. I look forward to working with you again!"

October 26th, 2009 Jim Long, Owner of Salish Group Construction Services - Hired Lane Coburn & Associates for the electrical engineering on the 11.95 KV Switch yard – 15KV Cable Replacements at Grand Coulee Dam.

"I work with Keith on a very complicated mixed-use Seattle condominium project which included residential, retail and hotel components.

Keith's innovative approach to electrical system design incorporates new, cutting-edge technology solutions in balance with cost objectives.
