JLA Architects announces new office in downtown Denver

By - Jan 6th, 2022 08:10 am

MILWAUKEE JLA Architects, a full-service architecture firm, announced its expansion today with a new Denver, CO office. The office is open and operating at the Dairy Block (1800 Wazee Street, Suite 300), in downtown Denver.  This is JLA Architects’ third location, joining offices in Milwaukee and Madison. 2022 will mark the firm’s 15-year anniversary.

Their new office is led by local Denver architect Erik Jansson (AIA) who has a career spanning 23-plus years including several acclaimed buildings in the greater Denver area for both public and private clients. He joins the firm’s operational leadership team as Vice President & Denver Office Director.

Jansson explains what makes JLA different from other firms, “At the heart of our work is the desire to make our communities better – we’re community collaborators,” explains Jansson. “We believe in the adage ‘Listen more, talk less’. Whether we are talking with a client, a community leader or other stakeholders, everyone has a voice. JLA isn’t a ‘my way or the highway’-type architecture firm.”

As the firm has started to connect with Denver-area partners and community members, Founder and President Joseph Lee said he’s often asked what JLA’s specialties are. “We serve a wide variety of clients ranging from small business owners and private developers to large corporations. So as our firm has grown and evolved, we’ve strategically added team members that have diverse backgrounds and experiences to meet our unique clients’ needs. We’re looking forward to expanding our Denver team and serving the community.”

In 2021, JLA Architects’ Madison office received a Dane County Small Business Award from InBusiness Magazine. Prior to that, the firm was recognized by the Milwaukee Business Journal as a ‘Best Place to Work’ in 2020.

JLA has a robust portfolio and is well known for its mixed-use & multifamily projects, civic/non-profit facilities, hospitality spaces, sports recreation facilities, retail environments and senior housing developments.
