After the recent heat swell and electrical storm, we want to thank you (LaMesita Properties) and your design firm (J S D A Inc.) for managing the HVAC repair and refrigerator replacement in a timely manner. It was especially great having (their) support, and we greatly appreciated having the repairs made while we were out of town. They did a great job!
Kazuto Kajiwara, Micron

Thank you SO much, Janice! I can’t thank you enough for your time yesterday and your willingness to share your research and resources with me and Because. It was a huge help, and I have already begun working on how I am going to implement all of your suggestions to help protect our team.
Kayla Hetherington, Because International

I had the good fortune to work with J S D A Inc on the design of a two-level expansion leased facility in Meridian for my firm. I was greatly impressed and have not had a more professional experience rendered throughout the entire process. I feel like they went above and beyond getting my firm all the information I needed in a short amount of time. I would absolutely call upon them again!

Please share with Janice and team how much I enjoyed their design work at Building 5.  I wish all of our spaces at PRG could have as much to say and be so relevant to our business.  JSDA Inc does amazing work!

Our main reason for choosing (J S D A) was the professionalism and technical expertise Janice demonstrated.  I was most impressed with…her communication skills…in helping facilitate (the) decision making process.

- Mr. David Bassett-Parkins, COO, NetGateway

Janice and her team are just outstanding people. We couldn’t have asked for a better design firm when we set out to improve our offices. We feel lucky to have met; as she delivers on the “no job too big or too small” adage. We’ve hired her firm on follow-on projects, and they’ve treated every one of them with the same care and meticulous detail orientation as the original. J S D A is creative, resourceful, personable and patient—and the results are phenomenal!
Roger Bloxberg, CEO Avonquest North America

J S D A understood our marketing approach, the design of the space, and its relationship to our client needs. Janice was instrumental in finding space for the expansion of our project teams. Her talent is impressive, and we engaged her firm on our new home as well!

Janice’s creative ability to retain the elements of the original Bank’s executive headquarters showcased her code knowledge and helped the Bank save a great deal on the merger project.

- Mr. Dick Rosenberg, President, Bank of America

This mansion is spectacular, the painting technique in the dining room recreating the original silver-leaf finish is awesome.  Stunning.

- Brett Waterman, National VP Sales,  Realtor.com

Janice is a rare designer. She genuinely customizes design to the needs of the client and the space. I hired J S D A for a space in the Hollywood Hills, which was originally a dual-use commercial art gallery. The space has an unusual distribution of space, with Spanish Colonial architecture and loft characteristics. Updating this space for modern living and entertainment/work usage, while maintaining its original architectural integrity, and creating a unifying principle for the entire house was no easy challenge. Her attention to detail, flexibility, and knowledge about architectural history from Spanish Colonial to the Vienna Secession were critical to the project’s success. Love Janice!
Don Krim, Countertenor


Broadway Federal Bank has enjoyed working with Janice on several successful ventures. J S D A Inc. worked on our corporate headquarters, studying several feasibility studies and exploring construction options prior to purchasing an existing building on Wilshire Boulevard. Her work was very well received. J S D A also contributed innovative design ideas for our BankSmart banking facility near USC. Janice demonstrates exceptional expertise and commitment to the projects she accepts. We would absolutely use J S D A again for design services.
– Paul Hudson, Chairman, Broadway Federal Bank

As a financial advisor to high net worth corporate founders, our business offices are important…a projection of our image to our clients. J S D A visited our offices, to understand our direction and the constraints of the site. Then, Janice expeditiously guided us, a great executor which enabled all our ideas to be previewed in 3D before undertaking them. J S D A is comfortable to work with, and has exceptional taste.
 –  Robin Taliaferro, Corporate Officer Tax Strategies LLC


We hired J S D A to be our project leader and oversee all design/construction functions for a commercial office build-out, 20,000+sf, $2M new construction project in downtown Los Angeles. Janice was a master at coordinating all the contractors, managing our demands and the building owner’s issues. She masterly supervised all the construction. This was a difficult project given our short time frame and budget constraints. Janice drove the process and introduced many new cost saving ideas. The office was completed on time and under budget! Janice is a hard working knowledgeable professional who knows how to get the job done. I recommend her without qualification.
Kort King, ABM Engineering


We’ve worked with Janice’s team on several projects. We enjoy working with J S D A: we collaborate on solutions, are paid fairly and in a timely manner, and we are always proud of the finished project!
Mark Crowson, MC Construction

I have worked with Janice on several projects over the past 30 years.  Her understanding of the preconstruction process has been a important factor in the completion of creative spaces based on realistic budgets.  It has been a pleasure to collaborate with her, not only on client projects, but, on issues affecting our industry.
Aram Arekelian, Environmental Contracting Corporation

(J S D A) close monitoring of our budgetary process, contract negotiations, subcontractor reviews, and final Guaranteed Maximum pricing helped us provide our clients with an excellent completed product.

- Mr. Richard C. Baptie, Project Executive, Hathaway Dinwiddie and SCI-Arc Board Member

Under difficult and sometimes trying circumstances, I found Janice to be a true team player committed to a hands on approach…value engineering became easier because of her understanding of the process and the willingness to explore different approaches to completing the work.

- Mr. John R. Conaty, Manager,Turner Construction Company


You are an architectural rock star!
 Todd Helfstein, PlanetArt, LLC President

Janice is one of those rare professionals who has earned my deepest respect. Not only are her professional ability and ethics without reproach, she is a great designer and truly understands her craft. Anyone who considers hiring her would definitely receive the high level of service expected out of a large design firm, but with the level of detail and attentions that only a smaller firm can provide. Janice’s experience and abilities place her at the top of her industry.  – Scott Field, AIA Architect, Texas
