OUR CORE VALUES AND STRENGTHS
For over 50 years, we’ve held ourselves to the highest standards of the architectural
profession through our steadfast commitment to JLGA’s core values of quality and service
DESIGN THAT’S ELEGANT,
At the core of our firm values lays our commitment to design excellence solutions that give unique expression to our clients’ visions. Our designs encourage engagement and foster a sense of identity and community, with each architectural solution responding to its context with sensitivity, and supporting the function of each building in bold and fresh ways. We approach each architectural, interior design or adaptive reuse project with an iterative and collaborative conceptual design process. We take the time to explore the merits of various design alternatives including the implications of each on budget, schedule, brand, user needs, and sustainability goals.
We value our expert consultant and client team members and focus on the production of the highest quality architectural and interior design documentation through all design phases.
We understand the multi-dimensional aspects of true Design Excellence and set the bar high in designing each and every project
DEPTH OF EXPERIENCE
WE BRING 50 YEARS OF
TO EVERY PROJECT.
The JLGA design team brings an impressive level of experience to our clients. From the design of healthcare facilities and research laboratories to education, hospitality, and athletics, we understand the unique demands and design considerations associated with each facility type.
Our design process is collaborative, methodical, and focused on balancing the aspirational and pragmatic intent for each specific project. We design for our clients, not ourselves, developing fresh design solutions to important facilities and places that embody the aesthetic, programmatic, technical, and sustainable design goals established by each client and context.
SUPERIOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT
ATTENTIVE APPROACH TO
COORDINATION AND COMMUNICATION
JLGA’s success designing and managing highly complex projects stems from our skill and diligence in guiding each project methodically and comprehensively. This makes it possible for us to develop innovative designs, while closely coordinating every design, construction, approval and logistical detail of a project from conceptual design to final occupancy. Our ability to manage complex projects with phasing and advanced technical demands enables us to develop responsive design solutions and protect our clients’ interests and parameters.
RESPONSIVE CLIENT SERVICE
WE DESIGN FOR YOUR VISION,
NOT OURS. WE LISTEN FIRST —
While we have established a solid reputation as a design firm and have enjoyed the privilege of long-term professional relationships with our clients and collaborators, we don’t rest on our laurels: JLGA’s design team places a premium on the value of listening and responding to our clients, not only so we can give physical form to each client vision, but also to respect the unique budget and schedule parameters associated with each.
We know our trust must be earned and constantly proven.
We value a collaborative and responsive creative process during which we set aside the time and space to understand each clients’ needs, goals, and challenges. A successful final design depends, in part, on a design process that’s smooth and enjoyable for the client.
JLGA IS COMMITTED TO
PRESERVING AND NURTURING
As architects and interior designers, we understand that we can directly influence the future of our earth and the creation of healthy indoor environments for all. Selecting sustainable and renewable materials, exploring options to save energy, and reducing waste and carbon emissions represent just of few of the ways JLGA has been practicing sustainable design for decades.
Regardless of which specific institutional, agency, or governmental directives guide a project’s design and construction, it’s always JLGA’s standard practice to look for the greenest and most cost effective materials, systems, and design solutions to benefit the environment and our clients.
