The Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) has a full staff of professional construction managers, inspectors, labor compliance representatives, and regulatory specialists who have successfully managed and completed projects cumulatively valued at over $100 million, including new construction, rehabilitation of residential and commercial developments, community and senior centers, libraries, neighborhood and special access parks, and major streetscaping projects.
The LACDA understands how to manage projects in a complex regulatory environment. Capital building projects are often the highest risk projects an organization takes on. They can involve a broad range of complexity and uncertainty that must be managed from early project feasibility review to the completion of construction. Public owners have specialized concerns and corporate or political mandates that are not easily understood by most private sector consultants. It is not enough to get the job done; it must be done in the context of the organization's mandate, and with political sophistication.
