The LJA Story

LJA was founded in 1972 when John “Dutch” Lichliter established The Lichliter Company. In 1976, Bill Jameson joined the firm as president, and the firm was renamed Lichliter/Jameson & Associates. The firm evolved into LJA Engineering, Inc. in 2011, as it is known today.

At LJA, we continue to build upon our trustworthy reputation, adding high-level experts to our team and spearheading purpose-driven projects. To us, there is no measure that matters more than our drive to exceed the firm we were yesterday.

Employee-Owned, Employee-Led

We operate in 50+ offices across the country, bringing senior level experience to a wide range of industries and projects. Our employee-owners are driven by growth, and they drive our growth.

A Culture of Care

We believe that supporting our employee-owners and making a difference in our communities is just as important as delivering exceptional projects. Our commitment to giving back is a true representation of the values we hold close at LJA.

From our Thanksgiving Food Drive to Holiday Toys for Tots, LJA employee-owners are actively involved in fundraising and charitable endeavors throughout the year.

In the office or on the field — we’re a team. Our social activities and events foster trust and collaboration across departments.

From our High School Mentorship Program to Bring Your Kid to Work Day, we strive to help prepare the next generation to make a productive difference through mentorship and education.
