LCDG has worked with numerous Government Agencies and Municipalities on a broad range of projects over the course of the firm’s history. Evidence of the firm’s quality service is many long-term client relationships and on-call contracts (indefinite quantity, indefinite delivery) the firm holds, including the City of Burbank since 1986, Southern California Edison (SCE) since 2007, and Los Angeles County since 2010. Our experience with various construction delivery methods includes design-bid-build, JOC, and design-build.

An incredible 90% of repeat Government and Municipal work are for repeat clients - a testament to our combined creativity and management in working to solve complex and unique problems.

Project Highlight:

On the Boards: Live Oak Library, Arcadia CA

Located in suburban Arcadia, Live Oak Library is an adaptive reuse of an existing infill building that provides dispersed library services to residents. The project involved the re-imagining of an outdated and dark series of spaces. The building was ‘cracked open’ at its two exposed facades to allow dual entry, as well as bring in needed natural light. The staggered glassy entrances contrast with rich wood paneling. New skylights enliven formerly dark interiors, making the volume seem larger. Spaces within are tailored to the specific users – children, teens, adults and seniors.  At the front entrance, teen reading carrels are nested within the staggered glass storefront. A ‘zone of silence’ for small study groups is located in a nearby glass bubble. 

The project included extensive upgrades to the HVAC and electrical, and low voltage systems. The building was made fully accessible, with new restrooms and ADA designed pathways. Sustainable design was incorporated from the beginning, and the project is targeting LEED Gold. The project is currently under construction.
