LJA Expands to McKinney

LJA has experienced a steady expansion of locations throughout Texas due to a significant demand in our offerings. We have opened a new office in McKinney, Texas, providing a focused depth of engineering and surveying services in our twenty-ninth location. LJA’s total North Texas presence consists of talent and resources in Dallas, Fort Worth, McKinney, and Arlington to support Land Development, Surveying, Construction Engineering Inspection, Environmental, Rail, and Transportation initiatives.

McKinney Mayor George Fuller said, “We are pleased LJA is increasing their roots in North Texas and bringing more jobs to the McKinney community. Their commitment to service and education is engrained in their culture which makes the company an outstanding fit for McKinney.”

Calvin T. Ladner, LJA President said, “Our expansion in North Texas is a tremendous addition to LJA’s ability to provide design excellence with broad-based resources and personalized attention to clients in the region.”

ENR Texas & Louisiana selected LJA Engineering as its 2019 Design Firm of the Year. LJA saw about 30% growth in its revenue during 2018 and an addition of approximately 250 employees across its 29 offices in Texas and Florida, the most significant of which was in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Jim Wiegert, VP said, “LJA is a full-service firm, and we can bring a multitude of disciplines and solutions directly to our local clients when they are developing complex projects. We want to be the one company for our clients. We have worked diligently to scale up while never losing touch with the client’s needs. Even with our growth, we deliver a small firm customer service culture.”

LJA has called North Texas home for many years. Having multiple locations and multiple teams on the ground solidifies our long-term commitment to the region, our clients, and our employee-owners. LJA looks forward to being a part of its continued growth and success.

Kyle Salzman, VP said, “This new office immediately adds 25 jobs to the McKinney area. With an anticipated 50 personnel in the next 12 months, LJA will continue to expand our regional footprint to better serve our clients and employees alike, offering reduced commute times for staff and proximity to our current and future projects. Collin County is important to us.”

The new LJA office is currently open and located at 2150 S Central Expressway, Suite 380, McKinney, TX 75070.
