What We Do

We are devoted to creating environmentally responsible, functional, and visually stunning structures that offer enduring value. We firmly believe that facility design profoundly impacts the human experience.

Our Master Planning services aim to provide clients with a comprehensive and adaptable document that guides program development and growth. 

At LTA, we offer a comprehensive range of services beyond simply selecting colors. We understand the importance of attention to detail, and our services are delivered with a careful focus on each client’s specific needs.

Value engineering is an essential part of any building project. At LTA, we aim to deliver exceptional results while keeping costs in mind. A successful project occurs when we can reduce costs during the design process, not after bidding.

Programming is a crucial phase. It allows us to establish a systematic approach, outline client goals, and create a basis for decision making. Without proper programming, we risk missing important details that could impact the success of the project

Our team is dedicated to ensuring that all our projects fully comply with Building/Life Safety Codes, State Fire Codes, and ADA Design Guidelines. And we understand the importance of working closely with zoning and planning officials to ensure all regulations are met.
