Neher-McGrath Institute Educates About Data Centers, Mission Critical Facilities

Lane Coburn and Associates (LCA) has launched the Neher-McGrath Institute to educate the data center community about avoiding the serious issue of overheating underground duct banks for critical environments.


Lane Coburn and Associates (LCA) operates the website, to educate the data center community about avoiding the serious issue of overheating underground duct banks for critical environments. LCA are experts in duct bank design and modeling, forensics analysis and the implementation of low RHO backfill material.

LCA have also started the Neher-McGrath Institute. LCA has become a recognized leading expert in the field of analyzing and engineering electrical duct banks for mission critical facilities as well as providing forensics analysis for projects that have not been properly designed for high load factor loads. In addition to engineering their own mission critical projects, LCA will also provide design and provide certification through the Neher-McGrath Institute for projects not designed by LCA. See
