Randy Ifft, AIA
Associate Principal

Randy helps LCM’s clients understand not only the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of compliance issues but also ‘why’ it is important to make the built environment more usable for everyone.

With nearly 40 years of experience in architecture and construction, Randy understands the critical process for how things get built. This makes him an indispensable member of the FHA consulting group. He reviews plans, shop drawings, and construction sites of multifamily projects for compliance in design and construction accessibility requirements.

Randy puts people at ease with his humor and willingness to engage with the whole project team – from architect to tradesman. He finds answers, whether catching compliance issues in the early project stages to prevent construction cost overruns or finding defendable compliance solutions in the field to avert litigation. With his deep knowledge of and practical approach to accessibility, Randy’s mission is to help make the design and construction process go more smoothly.

To Randy, architecture is about building habitable spaces. The concept of ergonomic design, later embodied in the Principles of Universal Design, resonated with him as a student at Carnegie Mellon University and has influenced his work at his own firm and other architecture practices throughout his career. Making environments more livable is at the heart of what he does every day.
