At the heart of our business, Livermore Architecture & Engineering combines experienced judgment with integrated technology to shape physical environments around our clients’ needs and aspirations. Whether it is an intimate restaurant or an expansive industrial site, LAE can respond with a range of carefully considered possibilities. Our architects are prepared to guide a project from early visioning to substantial completion. Designing spaces to be more sustainable is also a guiding value here at LAE.
With over half of the staff registered as either Professional Engineers or Engineers‐in‐Training, LAE is able to flexibly devote a considerable amount of resources to the most challenging of structural systems. LAE’s design and analysis approach is rooted in the use of complex 3D modeling software, which allows for quick and accurate results while providing nimble adaptation as design priorities shift across a project. In‐office specialties include structural steel, composite steel and concrete deck, tilt‐up concrete panels, space frame and heavy timber design.
Over the past decade, LAE has assisted a range of large commercial and industrial clients with master planning services in which site selection, resource allocation and long‐range visioning are all considered. Our experience and credentials provides us with the tools necessary to consider a vast range of parameters that can affect the long term success and sustainability of a master plan including: geographic, demographic and logistical proximity; infrastructure access and distribution; value stream mapping of product development in a manufacturing context; phased development strategies; and maximization of energy efficiency.
LAE possesses deep experience working with project teams through a variety of design and construction delivery methods, including design‐build, design‐bid‐build, fast‐track and engineering‐procurement‐construction. Our expertise makes us a valuable resource to both clients and contractors when it comes to developing project budgets and material take‐offs, performing code and zoning reviews, and working with local jurisdictions from initial plan review through final certification of occupancy.
