• Other sectors

As continuous investment in our client’s needs, LNA is continuing to expand to other industrial sectors that require extreme reliability at every phase of the project lifecycle. Our key to accomplish the new challenges is our individualized approach to project management and construction management. We take time to understand the unique needs of each project, and use our wide-ranging experiences within other industries to develop a tailored construction management plan.

Besides our key markets, LNA has provided services in other industries such as environmental, textile, waste water treatment, maintenance facilities, etc. and we continue to actively seek and serve new sectors.

LNA provides assistance in construction claims and counter-claims analysis, management, dispute resolution and litigation support services to clients, legal firms, contractors and engineering firms.

LNA also provides expert services through forensic analysis to support, and assist the client through the resolution process (i.e. negotiations, litigation, mediation and arbitration).
