Sustainable Innovators

Since our founding in 1965, sustainability has been the lens through which we filter our work. It is a consideration in every phase of our process, a fundamental value that has continuously steered our projects toward more responsible and thoughtful solutions. It has been on our radar from the very beginning, long before the rest of the industry started talking about it. Our recent firm award from the USGBC-OC Chapter and the jury comments speaks to our history and commitment to sustainability:

“LPA’s long history and commit to sustainability is a model for our region. Milestones like the first NC project in the Country, first LEED Platinum project in Orange County and their sustainable innovations in with their own LEED offices and operations show that they walk the talk. LPA is a very fitting receipt for USGBC’s first Sustainable firm award.”

Our firm has participated in numerous milestone sustainable projects, including:

  • First LEED NC project in the Country: Premier Automotive Group
  • First LEED Police Facility in the Country: Woodland Police Facility
  • First LEED Platinum project in Orange County: Environmental Nature Center
  • First LEED Gold building for NASA: Jet Propulsion Laboratory Flight Projects Center

As a pioneer in sustainable design and a member of the U.S. Green Building Council since 2000, LPA has one of the most experienced LEED teams in the country having completed 50 LEED® certified projects - with more than 60 additional projects currently in development. At 80% LEED Accredited, LPA's staff is one of the greenest in the nation. The firm makes a consistent showing on the Top Green Firms List, landing in the Top 25 by green revenues, according to Engineering News-Record.
