LS3P has grown from a one-man office into a thriving firm with over 300 employees across eight offices in three states. A series of strategic mergers over the years has greatly expanded the firm’s portfolio, expertise, and geographic reach. A 1999 merger with TBA2 Associates LLC of Charlotte, NC established the firm’s first North Carolina office while incorporating TBA2’s significant experience with mixed-use environments. LS3P’s Columbia, SC office opened in 2004 to provide a much-needed presence in the capital city. In 2005, LS3P merged with Boney Architects, a highly respected North Carolina firm with offices in Wilmington and Raleigh specializing in K-12 designs. A 2011 merger with Neal Prince Architects of Greenville, SC, brought with it a rich portfolio of residential, worship, and higher education projects, expanding the firm’s presence in the Upstate. 2016 brought two more strategic mergers: Hubbard Architecture, LLC of Myrtle Beach, SC expands the firm’s capacity in the Grand Strand/Horry County market, while Dawson Architects greatly enhances the firm’s historic preservation and higher education resources and establishes the firm’s first office outside of the Carolinas.
