Quality Designs Since 1992

Thorburn Associates, Inc. is a design and engineering company founded in 1992 by Lisa A. Thorburn and Steven J. Thorburn to provide architectural clients both acoustical consulting and audiovisual system engineering from one firm.

By 1995, TA had more than tripled in size and moved from its original offices on Hillcrest Avenue to an office in Castro Valley, California.

In the Fall of 2001, TA moved again to larger offices in Castro Valley (our present location). We now employ a staff of engineers, designers, drafters, technical assistants and support staff in the main office, with branch offices in Los Angeles, CA, Orlando, FL, Charlotte, NC, Raleigh-Durham, NC, and an associate in Boise, ID.

With the expansion of services to include growing technologies and lighting design in addition to top quality support our continued growth is assured. The firm’s success is rooted in our belief of close cooperation and adherence to the highest professional ideals.

We have been recognized as one of the leading firms in the industry and our projects have received multiple awards.
