San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Project Director Rachel Inmon brings nearly 20 years of experience to her new role and opportunity at East Village-based design firm, LPA Inc. According to Inmon, she opted to join the firm because of the integrity, openness, honesty, high ethical standards, and value placed on executing details and design well. As someone who will be involved with projects and clients from initial meetings through construction, and follow-up business opportunities, this was important. Her leadership skills pair nicely with the leadership demonstrated by LPA in the green building and design realm—accentuated recently by the recognition of California Design Firm of the Year by industry magnate, Engineering News-Record.
Known throughout the region for its noteworthy buildings in the K-12 and Higher Education sectors, the company offers services in architecture, sustainability, planning, interior design, landscape architecture, engineering and graphics. Earlier this year, the LPA office in the historic Wonder Bread building earned LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Not only was the space an opportunity for LPA designers to exercise their design chops—it also serves as proof of their commitment to creating buildings that are environmentally responsible, using less water, less energy, and other resources wisely.
“LPA is a leader in thoughtful, creative, sustainable design,” says Project Director Rachel Inmon. “Being part of a well-established, forward-thinking firm with a desire to establish deep roots and continue growing in this community is a benefit to this ever-growing region and to all who call San Diego home.”
Prior to joining LPA, Inmon led the business development and project management efforts of several San Diego companies, focusing her efforts on the commercial, technology, and defense markets. She graduated in 1991 from Ball State University, with BS degrees in Architecture and Environmental Design from the School of Architecture and Planning. Inmon lives in San Diego with her husband, a Marine Corps Reserve Colonel. She is active in her community through charitable organizations and enjoys traveling, creating art, and anything to do with welding.
