Gary’s commitment to both architecture and structural engineering is reflected in the firm’s integrated design approach.[/intro] [one-third]belmont5[/one-third] [one-third][/one-third] [one-third last]OMSI Canopy 2015[/one-third] At LAE we view the practice of architecture and structural engineering as a complete and cohesive enterprise – we are tasked with creating a design that satisfies hundreds of project requirements, meets the client’s needs and budget, is constructible, is good for the environment, and contributes value to the users and the community at large. We love to work with the entire design team to put the puzzle pieces together into the best solution for the client. Design is an art as well as a science, and we strive to turn a clear vision into a completed project. livermore-aes-national-coverageAlthough located in the heart of Portland, Oregon, LAE possesses licensure in jurisdictions across the country and is well-versed when it comes to designing from afar.

Whether it is an intimate restaurant or an expansive industrial site, LAE can respond with a range of carefully considered possibilities.

[/tab] [tab title="STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING"] [dropcap]W[/dropcap]ith 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.

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.

[rev_slider diamond] When Diamond Foods sought to expand their existing Salem, OR production facility by 5000 square feet under a compressed timeline, LAE jumped in to help with the design. LAE worked closely with Diamond Foods and a team to create a structure that would maximize storage space and forklift access while meeting the needs of equipment loading and layout. Careful coordination with the existing building was required. The project will allow Diamond to expand the flavor offerings of its Kettle Brand potato chips. LAE successfully met the challenge of working within the existing building’s unique structural system and requirements. LAE services included design and construction documents, as well as construction administration.

[rev_slider Kai] When Kai USA, maker of Kershaw Knives, needed to expand its offices in Tualatin, Oregon, Livermore A&E came forward and was able to present a design solution that extended the facility's footprint by 6,400 square feet while also crafting a more modern exterior shell that still remained visually consistent with the broader commercial office park. Besides providing early feasibility assistance, architectural services, and structural engineering, Livermore A&E also worked closely with Kai and the City of Tualatin to ensure this project projected an image consistent with Kai's corporate values and Tualatin's planning goals.

[rev_slider Heidi] When Heidi Lovig of Heidi Ho Organics pitched her vegan “cheeze” product on the television show Shark Tank late in 2014, Lovig knew a significant expansion in their production capacity was on the horizon. In fact after the Shark Tank episode aired, “We sold more product in the last two months of 2014 than we had the entire first ten months of 2014,” said Lovig. Heidi Ho Organics, started in 2011, offers a range of plant-based vegan cheese alternatives that are made from sustainably sourced ingredients. Heidi successfully gained investor funding through Shark Tank, and has used this platform to take her product national and leased a property for manufacturing in NE Portland. In order to meet this increasing demand, Heidi Ho Organics selected Livermore A&E to design and coordinate permitting of a tenant improvement project to build out new manufacturing space for Heidi Ho. This new space, located in NE Portland, includes a test kitchen, production areas, refrigerators, packaging and shipping. With investor expectations and consumer demand riding high, time was of the essence. Livermore A&E developed the design, coordinated permitting with the City of Portland, and helped oversee the complete build-out in just under three months.
