LJA Acquires ILC and Expands Engineering Services in the Southwestern United States

LJA Engineering, Inc. (LJA) has acquired Innovative Land Consultants, Inc. (ILC), based in Westminster, Colorado. ILC brings extensive experience in all aspects of project management, design, and plan preparation from a diverse land development background. This vast expertise includes master planned residential communities, golf course communities, commercial projects, water resource projects, roadway projects, municipal infrastructure improvements, and jurisdictional floodplain improvements/channelization for open space corridors.

“Innovative Land Consulting provides LJA with an entry into the southwest and an opportunity to provide multi-discipline services to ILC’s existing clients,” said Jim Wiegert, Senior Vice President of Land Development in North Texas. “We look forward to working with ILC’s founder, Tess Hogan, and growing business in the Denver market. The firm is a great fit for LJA, as we share similar values and vision for the future.”
Tess Hogan, who will stay on with LJA, founded the firm in 2009 to offer unique project management solutions to the market. Each and every one of ILC’s projects are approached with the perfect combination of commitment, efficiency, and vision necessary to allow a timely completion for optimal client satisfaction. Tess has carefully and thoughtfully built ILC into a team of consultative experts who are in high demand by local and municipal clients of all types and sizes. 
LJA and ILC’s combined strength brings over 300 services and nearly 1,400 personnel to ILC’s core service offerings of project management and design, master land planning, and municipal infrastructure and jurisdictional floodplain improvements, as well as commercial, water resource, and roadway project services.
ILC’s Westminster location will become LJA’s 47th office. This location expands LJA’s total presence beyond the southeastern region of the country and into the southwestern US, nearing national recognition.
