South Shore Design Build Firm, Lineal Inc. Opens Office in Duxbury

| March 9, 2013 | 0 Comments

Lineal Inc. Design-Build Duxbury, MAImagine a small, abandoned, antique cape built in 1750 with low ceilings and cramped rooms. Now picture a contemporary loft with modern stainless steel appliances, concrete countertops, exposed steel beams and an open floor plan. These two styles sit on opposite ends of the residential design spectrum and attempting to combine both would be frowned upon, if not unthinkable by traditional designers. Bucking convention, a small design-build firm based out of Cape Cod did just that, and the result is a dreamy blend of preservation and innovation.

For the past 10 years Lineal, Inc. has provided homeowners and commercial clients with a turnkey design-build service that includes architectural design, custom carpentry and construction management services all under one roof. “Design-Build is rooted in the tradition of the “Master Builder,” typically an architect, who was responsible for total project delivery. From inception to completion, the Master Builder was accountable to the owner for not only the design but also the entire finished building.”

“builders who design, understand the need for a practical approach to any project and as architects who build, they appreciate that smart design can inspire efficiency, comfort, and beauty.”

The firm started on Cape Cod as a husband and wife team performing residential renovations. Ben and Alyssa LaMora were classmates together at the Syracuse University School of Architecture and after a couple years working for various design-build and architectural firms the two combined their talents and launched Lineal, Inc. with the intention of being both builders and designers.

Within a few short years the Lineal team added a registered architect in Drew McAllister, also a classmate and graduate of The Syracuse University School of Architecture. Drew brought with him years of experience working at the world-renown architectural firm Venturi Scott Brown & Associates in Philadelphia. There he developed critical expertise working with various technical design problems for a range of building systems in diverse settings. Many of Lineal’s projects reflect Drew’s technical know–how of the use and combining of various structural elements like steel, masonry or wood.

Ben’s passion for quality custom finish work, Alyssa’s balance of aesthetic details with smart & efficient design, and Drew’s technical capacity is evident in every Lineal project. However this is not to suggest that the three contribute solely in these specific roles. Every project is the result of collaboration from all three principals across all stages of the design and building process. Lineal operates under the belief that “builders who design, understand the need for a practical approach to any project and as architects who build, they appreciate that smart design can inspire efficiency, comfort, and beauty. “
