Livermore Architecture and Engineering (LAE), established in 2000, was born out of Gary Livermore’s commitment to both architecture and engineering. Over the years, LAE has quickly made its mark in Oregon and throughout the United States as an effective commercial and industrial building design firm. LAE has since grown to be a curated group of highly skilled and respected professionals led by Gary Livermore, the founder and dually licensed architect and structural engineer, and Geoff Grummon-Beale, the firm’s co-owner and Principal Architect.
Small Firm Service + Large Firm Capabilities
You won’t be a name in a database to us. With only a staff of ten people, LAE can give each client the personal attention they deserve. Even though we are small, we’re licensed in over 20 states, working in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. We can optimize the unique and complementary talents of our staff so that we can bring a robust and streamlined service without any of the fluff or bureaucracy that larger firms bring.
In-house Architecture & Structural Engineering
Because our firm was established from the beginning as an integrated structural engineering and architecture firm, we are deeply committed to finding practical, efficient solutions to design problems. Our multi-disciplinary team has decades of experience working together which gives perfect ground for smooth communication and quick solutions.
We Design Buildings That Work for People That Work
Our completed projects house thousands of people who are working in a variety of trades and professions – manufacturing, maintaining, administering, and supporting. We understand that the designs we develop have a direct result on the functionality, productivity, and well-being of the users of the building. We want our designs to support your business and we want to be a resource for your success. We value your time and input and don’t take it for granted.
Solid Designs – Practical Solutions
We believe great design creates buildings that are both attractive and highly functional. However, we put our egos aside and put our client’s needs first at every stage in the design process. We will strive for the highest level of quality the project will support but we will not try to convince you to buy something you do not need. Our team looks for ways not only to save construction costs for the client, but also for solutions that provide long-term, lasting value.
