WAI to LJAM


change is good.

WAI Continuum becomes LJA Minnesota

Founded in 1981, WAI Continuum’s body of work in architectural design, development consulting and planning spans across the nation and specialization in the full continuum of senior living, housing and aging care. In 2016, Lightowler Johnson Associates, Inc. (LJA) acquired WAI Continuum, expanding its body of services to include land survey, mechanical, electrical, civil and structural engineering services, as well as additional insight into hospitality, municipal and commercial projects on which LJA specializes.

In 2019, WAI Continuum was renamed LJA Minnesota to represent the shared strength and collaboration with the parent company and the new direction as a unified firm.

The following projects showcase WAI Continuum’s expertise in the senior industry as it now moves forward as LJA Minnesota!
