HOUSTON, TX — Eric Ford joins planning, engineering, and program management firm Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam, Inc. (LAN) as Program Manager for K-12 where he will be responsible for the management of planning, design, and construction administration services for LAN's most critical bond programs.

Ford joins LAN with nearly 20 years of architectural, construction, and program management experience. Most recently, he served as the Senior Manager of Facilities Planning & Design for the Houston Independent School District for the past 10 years. There, he successfully gave leadership to multiple roles for the district’s $2.1 billion 2012 Facilities Capital Improvement Bond Program, which produced one of the largest portfolios of USGBC LEED-certified schools in the country and a considerable number of award-winning academic facilities for the district.

“Ford’s experience with managing and overseeing large-scale bond programs adds a great benefit to our team," said JP Grom, LAN Vice President and Program Management Business Group Director. "His expertise in implementing long-term and short-term strategies will increase efficiency and effectiveness for the projects he will manage.”

Ford holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Southern University A&M College and a master’s degree in architecture from Savannah College of Art and Design.
