Vice President Joseph K. Barden, Jr., an accomplished executive with more than 25 years of experience as a lead airport planner, designer and project manager, oversees the office. Barden recently added three new hires to the LA team including Jean-christophe Dick, a Senior Consultant with expertise in terminal planning, facilities planning, market studies and safety analysis; Nathan Kibler-Silengo, a Terminal Architect and Managing Consultant with design experience focused on large-scale civic and aviation projects; and Philip Gwiner, a Consultant with experience in planning, noise studies and mitigation.

“L&B is delighted to be in Los Angeles particularly on Century Boulevard due to its proximity to LAX to be better able to serve LAWA and all of our Southern California foundation clients,” says Barden.

The combined resources of the new LA office and existing Irvine office will enable L&B to expand its multidisciplinary services provided to Southern California. The Irvine team, led by Managing Consultant Christian Valdes, specializes in a variety of noise services, including airport noise contour development and mapping; aircraft noise measurement and monitoring; noise monitoring system specifications, acceptance testing and training; and on-call acoustical consulting.
