Collaborative Guidance, Transparent Communication

Encouraging clients, team members and staff to openly discuss all aspects of projects, supports transparent communication. Transparent communication, coupled with collaborative guidance, is the foundation of LPD’s holistic approach to the civil engineering design. Each member of the management team strives to ensure they lead by example, encourage communication, and create an environment where solutions are shaped by the projects goals and community needs, supported by applicable codes.
