Kiana
Architectural Technician

Early in 2020, Kiana did her Algonquin College Coop with us in her last year of the Architectural Technologist Program.  She impressed us so much that when an opening came up, we reached out to her to see if she would like to join our team.  Kiana now helps Jeff, our Lead Designer with all aspects of designing and bringing our client’s visions to life on paper.

You will find Kiana either in the kitchen cooking up a storm or enjoying the great outdoors camping.

Herb Lagois
President

In Herb Lagois’s earlier days, he loved working with his hands. Sketching and carpentry were his favourite activities. So, it’s not surprising to learn that his favourite part of his job at Lagois is seeing a project take tangible shape.

When Herb isn’t keeping tabs on everything and everyone involved in all of Lagois’ various projects, you might find him on his motorcycle, listening to the Rolling Stones and dreaming the impossible dream of one day meeting Frank Lloyd Wright.
