John McRitchie, Southwest Region Operations Support @ DPR Construction

Lloyd is one of those people that after you work with him you feel that there is not another person that you get the same experience from when you have to work with other inspection companies. He is professional, a wealth of information and is always ready to provide services to get the job done. It was real pleasure to work with Lloyd on several different projects, and I look forward to working with him again.

Matthew Bennett, LA/OC Area Special Projects @ Rudolph and Sletten

I have worked with Lloyd for almost 20 years. Lloyd is very professional and is always concerned with his clients best interest. His inspection firm is top notch and his design firm also does quality work. I highly recommend Lloyd and LTJ Designs!

Chris Klein, President @ LAH Builders

Lloyd is one of the most knowledgable healthcare architects and construction experts I've had the pleasure of working with. His deep understanding OSHPD requirements and construction technology is matched by his ability to relate to, and effectively work with, all members of the design, construction, and client teams. I highly recommend Lloyd and his firm for any healthcare project, large or small, where attention to detail and regulatory compliance is a priority.

Hal Sibley, VP / Project Director @ Cannon Design

Lloyd and I worked on Kaiser's Los Angeles Med Center in Hollywood. Lloyd was the Contract Administrator for the Architect and I was the Project Executive for the contractor. Normally, these roles lead to some, if not a many adversarial situations. However, I always found Lloyd to be very cooperative and always gracious. Lloyd always seemed to find solutions and ways to present them that allowed everyone to get on the bandwagon and move forward. He is innovative and creative in his problem solving, yet practical. I would welcome the oppurtunity to work with him again.

Kyle Seeman, Project Executive

I have known Lloyd for about 10 years. We worked together together on some very challenging projects. I valued his approach in resolving complicated issues and being able to steer the project in the right direction. He has the ability to work with all team members and quicky becomes a recognized leader. I recommend Lloyd without hesitation, and look forward to working with him again in the future.
