ABOUT JLG: On a 20-below day in 1989, Gary Johnson and Lonnie Laffen opened the doors to JLG Architects with little more than a stack of bumwad and a burning desire to truly make a difference through great design (and probably a space heater, because brr). Thirty-two years later, we are one of the country’s 50 Most Admired Companies (MSN Money), 50 Best Places to Work (Inc. Magazine), and Architecture Giants (Building Design+Construction). That two-person firm may have grown to 150 professionals in 11 offices, but our driving force remains the same. Every day at JLG is a new day for creating, inspiring, and solving challenges.

The team – from our Intern Designers to our Construction Administrator and Marketing staff – are the heart and brains of the process, and we work closely, because together, we find the inspiration to go further. We live and work with passion; never stopping at “good enough” when it comes to our own expertise and aptitude. We are innovative, creative, and resilient in seeking out new ways to actively participate in the experience of being a JLGer.

In fact, our JLGers are so important, that we became a 100% Employee-Owned ESOP in 2014—because the best place to grow your career is at a business of your own design.
