"Quality is never an accident, it's always the result of intelligent effort"

LA is a specialist sports and leisure architectural practice. For 25 years we have been designing and creating buildings and facilities that inspire excellence in sport, or simply joy in people. The reason for this is simple ... we enjoy what we do and we do it well.

Elizabeth Adams


Commercial Director

Elizabeth, who founded LA architects with Mike Lawless in 1992, is responsible for all the commercial and legal requirements of the company. The operation of all the administration within the Practice comes under her management as well as the financial and contractual control of all Projects.

Leigh Pullan



Leigh, who joined LA architects in 2000, is a vastly experienced architect and team leader, highly focused on the delivery of our buildings.

His understanding of material qualities and attention to detail, coupled with his ability to coordinate project resources and translate good design into a built reality, have seen the successful delivery of some of the largest sports facilities LA has undertaken including the award winning Glass Mill, and Haven Point Leisure Centre.

Leigh, who sits at the forefront of the LA’s BIM delivery programme, champions a thorough understanding of governing body requirements, servicing, construction and fabrication including the detail and specification of elements, materials and fixtures.

All things sport, Leigh’s interests away from the office encompass health and fitness, spin cycling and football.
