We’re set apart by the diversity of services we offer and markets we serve. We approach each project as a challenge and an opportunity, leveraging our collective knowledge to offer dynamic solutions.

Our highly experienced team, coupled with our people-centric approach, has helped us nurture lasting partnerships with clients, who turn to us time and time again to deliver on their visions.

Regenerative Design

Our commitment to sustainability began more than 30 years ago with a focus on design for energy conservation, resource efficiency, and occupant health. Today, we are looking beyond sustainability toward regenerative design solutions that enhance human and ecological wellness in our communities.

Community Investment

For decades, communities and clients have trusted us to design the infrastructure, buildings, and sites they need to grow and thrive. We don’t take that for granted. We give back to communities in several ways—through financial support, scholarships, in-kind donations, pro bono work, and volunteer hours—because we know that our success depends on the success of the communities we serve.

Tomorrow’s Design Today

We know that our world is changing. In the coming decades, buildings and transportation will be electrified and energy will shift to all renewable sources. The need for resilient and adaptive buildings and infrastructure will continue to grow and it is imperative that these changes help build a healthier and more equitable world. LHB’s unique ability to work across sectors enables us to guide our clients through this transition better than anyone in our industry. We welcome the challenge to lead through design.
