Purpose has always been at the heart of our work at Lamp Rynearson. From its conception in the mid-20th century, we understood the need for purpose, progress, and innovation within our communities.
Over sixty years later, Lamp Rynearson is an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) company that has successfully transitioned four generations of firm owners and leaders. We are informed by science and motivated by compassion. Our firm continues to contribute to the attainable condition for our communities through the purpose-built environment.
Lamp Rynearson remains customer-centric and serves clients across the Midwest and Front Range with comprehensive engineering, surveying, landscape architect, and aquatic design services. We strive to create spaces that generate inclusion, equity, and a sense of belonging through our community-changing projects. The continued success we’ve achieved with our stakeholders can be attributed to the fact that we are not just ready for change; we are authors of it.
