About the Firm

BSA LifeStructures designs facilities that support, enhance and inspire healing, learning and discovery. Facilities that are LifeStructures.

Our integrated disciplinary efforts with visionary healthcare, higher education and research clients achieve measurable outcomes through metrics-driven design solutions. Together, we create inspired solutions that improve lives.


BSA LifeStructures pursues a collaborative process that relies on user and community input to create facilities that support and enhance the important work being done within them. With the firm’s multidisciplinary staff, we create purposeful and outcome-focused environments where the impact of design is measured in performance gains.

Dedicated to progressive and sustainable design, the firm has designed a number of LEED-certified buildings, as well as facilities planned to accommodate the future growth and evolution of the institutions that use them. With offices in Austin, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Raleigh, St. Louis, and Tampa, BSA LifeStructures has grown for four decades by not simply designing buildings, but by providing inspired solutions that improve lives.


Since 1975, BSA LifeStructures has dedicated itself to bringing facilities to life, creating facilities that support and enhance the practices of healing, learning and discovery as well as the people dedicated to them. With a balanced blend of inspired creativity, evidence-based design and years of experience, BSA LifeStructures has created facilities for some of the nation’s top healthcare, higher education and research institutions.

We are Purposeful.

We are focused in our three markets. We don’t do strip malls or churches. We do complex spaces. We strive for excellence in everything we do. We listen, challenge, and solve tough complex problems. We are always seeking knowledge so we can maintain and increase our expertise and that is our reputation.

Being purposeful means having people doing what they love so they can add the most value towards improving lives.
