NEO Chapter

At LaBella Associates, our job is to create – structures, plans, ideas, results. As a nationally recognized Design Professional Corporation, that’s a given, right? But here’s what really drives us: creating partnership between our team and our clients. So much so that we become one team, unified in the unrelenting pursuit of exceptional performance on each and every project. Reliability. Accountability. Collaboration. Respect. Not skills we went to school for, but innate in LaBella team members. 

The pursuit of partnership is embedded in our culture—has been since our inception in 1978. And it affects client outcomes in profound ways. It means we’re built to expertly execute projects from start to finish. That we have the talent and resources to take on any challenge. That projects are completed on time, on budget, and beyond expectations. And that we win awards – not just for our talent, but also for our ethics, employee culture, and growth. 

Today, our wheelhouse is broad, with four key service offerings: Buildings, Energy, Infrastructure, and Environmental. Our staff of over 700 team members is spread across more than 20 office locations. We’re headquartered in Rochester, NY—but our impact is seen, felt, and experienced around the world.

Raymond Corby, RA

With over 40 years’ experience as an architect and project manager, I have planned, designed and managed many project types and sizes from small remodeling’s to large complex new facilities primarily in the education and healthcare fields.

My core beliefs are that since the built environment has a long-standing and significant impact on the human experience, it must be done thoughtfully and correctly; that every project can be better than the last one; and that although design and construction of facilities is complex, it does not have to be chaotic, but rather can be efficient and enjoyable.

Continually improving the planning, design, and delivery processes is my passion. As a result, I am an advocate of collaborative teaming and draw upon my considerable experience in Design/Build, CM at Risk, and Integrated Project Delivery, as well as traditional Design/Bid/Build to improve the way projects are delivered.
