Bristow Village

People in Bristow Village have a new amenity to look forward to, as progress continues on this welcoming space that will feature a two-story roof with a terrace, elegant arches, and awnings for visual interest. We will share more project details as we are able!

Innovative Exoskeleton Adds New Floors to Historic Pace West Building

This project allows us to take something old and make it new again, as we help to transform the old Pace West building on John Marshall Highway in Haymarket, Virginia, into office condo and restaurant space. Rather than demolish the building, which opened as Gainesville Elementary School in 1935, or expand outwards, which would mean the loss of youth sports fields, our plan calls for building an exoskeleton around the historic building. The project will add two floors and an open roof top with mountain views, while making use of existing resources and preserving historic architectural elements.

Church and South

Church and South is a new project we are working on. This is a development of a mixed-use building addition to a single-family home currently used as office space.  This project is currently going through the Architectural Review Process.        

Northern Virginia Bioscience Center

The Northern Virginia Bioscience Center, a 30,000 square foot lab building located in Innovation Park, close to a brewery, event venues, restaurants, and scenic walking trails. Located near the George Mason University SciTech Campus, this park’s tenants include ATCC, Corning Mediatech, and the Prince William Science Accelerator. Multiple spec plans are available to accommodate tenants of all sizes, with labs starting at 980 square feet. We are proud to have worked on this project!        

SPARC Research

LPA was hired to create a design for their new state-of-the-art research facility in Warrenton. The design concept was based on the historic manufacturing and factory building influence, with high-tech materials.  The massing of the building has a center hierarchical feature with lower side elevations.  The window details were derived from the old-fashioned wired glass with divided lights. The material color changes also identify the different interior uses of office spaces and manufacturing and test uses. SPARC Research was founded in 2018 to advance the state-of-the-art in rocket and airbreathing technology development, preliminary design, and prototype demonstration using modern Multiphysics modeling tools. With over 325 years of combined experience in rocket propulsion, SPARC’s personnel create relationships with customers that are built on trust. Working with established propulsion suppliers, missile prime contractors, and Government laboratories to provide unique design solutions to demanding propulsion requirements, SPARC Research provides an unbiased technical analysis and design solution that the customer can count on.

Rendering to reality, when M&F grew out of the last building LPA designed for them, they came back to us to help solve their needs of expanding operations.  We designed their new headquarters, currently under construction, along with a dispatch office, scale house, and decant facility creating a new complex operation. Leveraging Technology and Innovation, M&F capabilities continue to evolve while remaining true to our founding principles. M&F has created a new Gold Standard for workmanship and unwavering commitment to completing contracts that now, all other providers are measured against.
