At LDA Engineering, we’re more than just a civil engineering firm—we’re community builders with over four decades of dedicated service. From our beginnings as Lamar Dunn & Associates in 1982 to evolving into the multidimensional LDA, we’ve established ourselves as leaders in the Southeastern U.S.

As an employee-owned company, we take pride in our practical and effective engineering solutions, honed over 40 years of experience. With offices in Tennessee (Nashville, Johnson City, Knoxville, Memphis, and Chattanooga) and North Carolina (Charlotte), we’ve cultivated deep knowledge and lasting relationships within these communities.

Our approach is collaborative and team-based, ensuring successful outcomes that meet client expectations, budgets, and deadlines. Our vision is simple yet profound: to help build stronger, happier communities. This mission drives everything we do, from protecting public health, safety, and welfare to developing innovative solutions for critical infrastructure projects.

With a team consisting of over 300 years of combined experience, we’ve played a pivotal role in enhancing cities across Tennessee. Our recent projects, like the NDOT Complete and Green Street of 12th South Avenue in Nashville and our collaboration with KUB in Knoxville to expand fiber optic connectivity in rural areas, exemplify our commitment to building thriving communities.

Our offerings span engineering, project management, and consultant services in key infrastructure domains, including water systems, multimodal transportation, solid waste, telecommunications, electrical and natural gas distribution, and environmental systems.
