Our History

Lamoureux Pagano Associates is a Worcester-based, 18-person architectural and project management firm led by President Kathryn Crockett and three additional principals, Richard Lamoureux, Jr., Eric Moore, and Robert Para, Jr.

Richard Lamoureux, Sr. launched the architectural firm in 1970, with a commitment to the highest standards of creative design and professional service. When Richard retired in 2007 after a distinguished career, Mike Pagano took over as president, having already been a principal with the firm for more than 20 years. Upon Mike’s retirement at the end of 2017, Katie Crockett became the third president in the firm’s nearly 50-year history.

Over the course of LPA’s history, the firm has expanded both the size and scope of its portfolio – recognized nationally and locally for its design of educational, cultural, medical, and corporate buildings, as well as its work in historic preservation, sustainable design, and owner project management.

Our focus for every project is on quality and value. We maintain the same high standards for a small renovation project as for a major new construction or historic preservation commission. We consider LPA’s size a key advantage: big enough to handle every dimension of large and complex projects, yet small enough to assign one of the firm’s principals to manage every project.

While the LPA team today looks very different than the small firm Richard Lamoureux started 48 years ago, the principals, project architects, project managers, and professional support staff continue to uphold and build upon the firm’s reputation for creative design, superior service, and exceptional client relationships.
