There’s nothing Lauana likes better than working from a hanging scaffold. A fondness for heights was one of the things that drew her into the architecture profession.

Lauana Lins has more than 15 years of experience leading renewal projects in the New York metropolitan area. Her work includes the investigation, analysis and repair of building envelopes and roofing systems as well as providing historic preservation and New York City Façade Inspection & Safety Program (FISP) services. She assists a variety of clients, such as commercial and residential property owners and managers, developers, and local agencies, including the New York City Department of Design and Construction.

A Hands-on Approach
Whether it’s the façade assessment of condominium tower or roof replacement at a landmark cathedral, Lauana partners with stakeholders to develop solutions that address both immediate and long-term goals. After working closely with clients to determine the project’s scope, she presents the various options, sets priorities and establishes a plan for execution. She coordinates with other project partners to ensure that schedule and budget requirements are met.

International Expertise
A native of Brazil, Lauana also plays an active role in managing the firm’s projects and business development efforts in Brazil and Latin America. Since 2010, she has been working with our strategic partners to expand the firm’s presence there.

Outside of Work
Lauana and her husband, who is also an AEC professional, share their passion for the built environment with their young son through family LEGO nights. A skilled photographer, several of her images have been featured in Thornton Tomasetti’s annual employee photography exhibition. Lauana’s other hobbies include taking long walks with her dog and traveling.
