David LaCount

Moving between fine detail and the big picture, David excels at working with project teams to solve complex on-site problems in ways that are in keeping with the final design intent.

At PCA, David works primarily on the construction administration side, balancing the needs of the client and contractor to manage construction phase services including client, contractor and consultant meetings, conflict resolution, construction quality review, scheduling reviews and monitoring, change management, contractor pay request review, cost control, shop drawing and RFI review, management of punch list and project closeout activities.

  • I’m from  Bristol and Darien, CT.

  • My education  BSc, Arizona State University; B.Arch, Boston Architectural College

  • Notable accomplishments/awards  Led the architectural team on a feasibility study for a new transit system in Kaohsiung, Taiwan (late 1980s)

  • Why PCA?  Great culture, great people, great projects, dedicated clients

  • My favorite space  Bramante's Tempietto in Rome is a master work of harmony and order.

  • Building or place I wish I designed  Santiago Calatrava's World Trade Center transit hub. Except for it being way over budget and over schedule, it is a sculptural masterpiece of pattern, organic form and light, and brings joy to passengers traveling through it.

  • I’m concerned about  mega projects that do not relate to the people who use and travel around the buildings.

  • When I’m not working you can find me  in my sculpture studio.

  • On my playlist  Miles Davis

  • If I could snap my fingers and become an expert in something, it would be  the piano.
