Firm Overview

livas_exterior The Livas Group Architects, P.C., an African American owned and managed minority firm, was originally founded in 1948 in Hampton, Virginia as Henry L. Livas, AIA, Architects. The present firm, located in Norfolk, Virginia is composed of a staff of professionals who collaborate and direct their skills and talents towards the practice of comprehensive architecture.

Primary Experience includes Hospital Design, Housing, Educational Facilities, Industrial Park Planning, Industrial Building Design and extensive design experience in the renovation of Academic, Medical, Office, Housing and other building types.

The firm has a staff of experienced professionals who can produce work within tight time and budget frames. We believe that individual attention to the client’s particular problem cannot be overemphasized. The Livas Group believes that contemporary projects must include close budget control as a part of the Architectural program, and that no project can be brought to a successful conclusion unless it is done so within the available funds of the client. All personnel concerned with the services are checked before being released to the client for approval. The LGA team emphasizes continued dialogue with the client and all the various consultants to help assure the development and attainment of a realistic and satisfactory schedule.
