INNOVATION

Technology

What animates the effectiveness of the Lohmann Quitno team is our ability to be responsive to change and to utilize a variety of delivery methods to satisfy our clients’ needs. The use of technology to support, document and market our work gives us the real-time feedback we need to be responsive and flexible in a demanding marketplace.

Plan Production  While we still utilize pencil and sketch paper to develop preliminary ideas, all of our finished plan work is developed using AutoCAD 2013 (Civil 3D) software. This innovative program allows us to easily produce plans in full color and at varying scales.  All of our design work is available in electronic or paper formats and produced entirely in-house for fast and easy distribution to our clients, whether via standard UPS delivery, email, or ftp site.

Drone Analysis  The use of drone imaging is an effective way to gather and assess real time data for golf course analysis and construction approvals.  At Lohmann Quitno, we use this technology to develop animated course fly-throughs, take promotional photographs of completed work, and to review construction progress.  The image to the right is an example of the latter, showing a drone shot of the putting green subgrade at Medina Golf and Country Club with elevations painted at 10′ intervals.  The image was used to analyze drainage patterns and slopes, allowing us to give the contractor the go ahead for drainage install with minimal turnaround time.

 

Before & After Computer Imaging   At Lohmann Quitno, we also utilize photo manipulation technology to create before and after imaging of proposed golf course changes before ground is even broken. This is an extremely valuable tool in the presentation and sharing of ideas. Using three-dimensional imaging allows our clients who are largely unable to interpret two-dimensional plans to “visualize” the proposed changes in a photo-realistic format.

In the example below from the Bridges of Poplar Creek, the middle photo shows our artist’s rendition while the bottom photo shows how it was actually rendered in the field.

Before Note the failing wall, Willow encroachment and visually obtrusive bridge.

Proposed Our computer generated “after” shows a new stone wall, expanded water area and relocated bridge.

Constructed The finished product closely resembles the above “after” photo.

Testimonials

“Comments about the renovation at Westmoor have been overwhelmingly positive and many in the community, who are not members, have expressed their desire to be invited to play. We cannot thank Bob and Todd enough for maintaining their patience for so many years. I am pleased that our companies have such a mutually beneficial relationship and together we have persevered through some difficult challenges to create an outstanding golf facility.”

Joseph C. Coan, CCM
Chief Operating Officer, Westmoor Country Club

"As Golf Course Superintendent at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club, it has been my pleasure to be involved in two major projects with Bob and Todd, both completed on time and at budget. The Lohmann Quitno team is wonderful to work with, and our membership is very pleased with the results. In fact, our membership has grown since the completion of the projects and the excitement has them continuously asking me: ‘What's next?’”

Ronald J. Forks
Golf Course Superintendent, Tippecanoe Lake Country Club

“Like any facility contemplating a project, we had a vision of what we wanted. It takes a talented and focused company to interpret someone else’s vision and provide a product that compliments it exactly. The Lohmann Quitno team has that talent and focus. They provided us with a facility that meets every expectation we laid in front of them and one that we are extremely proud of. The foresight, planning and execution Bob and Todd brought to the table positioned Indian Creek well for many years to come.”

Jim Nedrow GCS
Superintendent, Indian Creek Golf Course

“During the past 25+ years I have worked directly with Bob and Todd at both of our golf facilities on a diverse range of projects. The Lohmann Quitno team has demonstrated a passion and commitment to meeting or exceeding our expectations on each project. They understand the unique challenges that we face at each of our golf facilities and develop solutions that meet player expectations and that are cost effective. They have been a big key to our success!”

Brian C. Chalifoux

“The work that we have accomplished to date has been extremely well received by our members. Our board of directors, golf course superintendent, and I are so happy with our working experience with Todd that we are now preparing to embark on a complete long-term master plan for the entire facility. We eagerly look forward to a continued partnership with Lohmann Quitno.”
