Latimer, Sommers & Associates, P.A.is a consulting firm with many years of experience in the design of mechanical, electrical and environmental building systems. LSA's present Association was founded in 1987 as the successor of two previous firms dating back to 1954. Five partners privately hold the firm as a Professional Association. Professional engineers in the firm are licensed in 33 states and perform services in at least 15 of those each year.
Latimer, Sommers & Associates completes design of systems having an average annual total construction cost in excess of $200 million. The firm's licensed engineers specialize in mechanical and electrical system design including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); plumbing; lighting; and power distribution. In addition, our engineers are qualified in fire suppression systems, fire detection systems, CCTV and security systems. The knowledge of these systems is essential in developing a coordinated building design consistent with the construction documents being prepared by other design professionals.
LSA’s design studio philosophy is to have each engineer qualified to perform both mechanical and electrical design for each project and carry it from the initial contact, through design, construction and commissioning. This generates superior design consistency and coordination while reinforcing design solutions with on-site interaction with contractors. An extremely thorough drafting staff translates the engineer’s concepts into consistent, easy-to-read construction documents which are the key to reliable bids and clarity for the constructor.
The firm has seven LEED Accredited Professionals, a certified GeoExchange Designer (IGSHPA), and two Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDD).
