Core Values

Our work is guided by a set of core values which have been intrinsic to our firm since its founding. Dick Lamoureux started his business with the intention of upholding the highest standards of design, providing superior service to his clients, and a commitment to the people of the city and region. As LPA|A evolved, the leadership of the firm has never lost sight of those ideals.

Superior design inspired by you

Design inspiration for our buildings is found in our client’s program and the context of the site. Our buildings respond to current needs and future use, drawing on the principles of sustainable design, optimization of the site, and employing state-of-the-art engineering and technical systems.

Contextual Sensitivity

Understanding and preserving the character of the buildings and communities in which we work is a critical piece of any project we undertake, and can be seen in our portfolio of work.

Diverse Portfolio

“There are no cookie-cutter designs from this team. LPA|A designs buildings that fit the needs of owners and users, whether they be public libraries, schools, performance centers, and more.”

– Ellen Dolan, Director, Shrewsbury Public Library

Sustainable Design

Since LPA|A’s inception, innovative sustainable design has been a cornerstone of our projects. From the basis of appropriate building orientation, highly efficient envelope design, and active passive solar projects, our approach has evolved to incorporate LEED goals and other sustainable initiatives.

Dedicated to Achieving Your Goals

As architects and project managers we strive to produce buildings that strongly support our client’s needs and objectives, are responsive to the owner’s construction and operating budgets, and are a pleasure to experience. From programming through final design approval the owner has an active role in the process and within the firm, we value the diverse contributions of every member of our team.

Return on Investment

We design for the long term, using durable, low maintenance materials that will keep operations costs down and last for future generations. Our high standards for design, the thoroughness of our processes, and our decades of experience all contribute to low change order rates and repeat clients.

Repeat Clients

“Given our long relationship with LPA|A, their incredibly efficient designs, the quality of their work, their highly cooperative nature and leadership ability, I can only assume that this relationship will continue for many years to come.”

– Henry Fitzgerald, Former Building Committee Chairman

Collaborative Process

“The Lamoureux-Pagano team of professionals provided expert architectural guidance from inception to completion of the recently opened Auburn Middle School. Committed to ensuring that the end product reflected the vision of the School Building Committee and the school’s administration, communication was open and ongoing, resulting in a state of the art educational facility in which the entire Auburn community takes great pride.”

Committed to Your Community

We understand we all have a role to play in making the community better, both through our work and through our personal efforts. We foster a culture of giving back, and encourage every member of our team to get involved in the communities where we live and work, whether volunteering at local nonprofits, serving on boards and committees, or participating in professional associations.

A Supportive and Creative Work Environment

“The majority of the team here has been with LPA|A for 15 years or more, so we all know each other’s strengths and weaknesses and work well together to create a good product. One of the reasons I have stayed at LPA|A is that I have always had opportunities to learn and grow. ”

– Principal Eric Moore, joined the firm in 1989
