Services

LAI provides a vertically integrated and seamless multi-disciplinary approach to projects. The synergy between firm disciplines allows a flow of ideas and solutions that are practical and meet our clients' financial and business objectives.


Architecture

LAI offers building programming, project budgeting, conceptual design, design development, construction documents, interiors, and project management through construction.

Planning & Landscape Architecture

Successful real estate planning solutions require leadership, strategy, facilitation, and understanding of construction realities. Our projects range from 1 acre to 10,000 including urban redevelopment areas, destination resorts, and entire communities. We understand the bigger picture and the importance of real estate due diligence, entitlements and know our way around the zoning table. No stranger to conflict and opposition, our Harvard trained staff are experts at public facilitation and conflict resolution because our clients play to WIN.

Visual Media

Every Project begins with a vision. Our sister company, SMASH Visual Media, provides complete brand creation, 3D modeling and animation, website design, and marketing collateral design.

Real Estate Advisory

With MBA's and real estate finance backgrounds, we look for the best way to help structure your deal. We offer pre-land acquisition services, financial modeling, feasibility and phasing cost analysis, and cash flow construction budgeting analysis. This is a valuable component of our firm that lends a business perspective to design.

Development Management

Investor groups and institutions that require experience and resources rely upon our team to manage the development process as a fee based project manager. We manage the entitlement process, contractors, development agreements and associated negotiations, procuring development permits, utilities, access, and Certificates of Occupancy.
