our history

PLA Designs, Inc is a full-service Assembly Space Consulting and Illumination Design firm.  Our projects range from backwoods Visitor Interpretive Centers to 10,000 seat Worship Centers.  We have designed and consulted on 100 seat Community theaters and 18,000 seat Amphitheaters.  Our projects span over 24 states in the USA.  We have been in business since 1986, and between our  key individuals, cumulatively have nearly 60 years of diverse professional experience in construction design and consulting.


We have designed systems, installed systems, trained users, served as teachers, held seminars and develop new theater products.  We have studied structures, interiors, acoustics, architecture, HVAC, electrical systems, networks, fabrics and psychology of humans in assembly environments.  We have worked in the field and worked in the office.  We have acted in plays, directed set design, played in professional orchestras and spent lonely hours cutting color gels. We are winners of International Awards of Merit for Architectural Lighting Design projects.  Our projects have been featured in multiple national magazines. While not masters of all things, we are well versed in many and experts in a select few.


We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to blend our years of experience and broad set of skills with yours on any project where our areas of practice are well-suited.
