Our History


ALA was formed by Adrian Lamb from his kitchen table in Beetham, Cumbria. Following his extensive experience working on major pipelines as a Quantity Surveyor, he provided commercial management and dispute resolution solutions to the oil and gas pipeline industry.

1997 - 2001

ALA grew and the first office was opened in Arnside. During this period, ALA was involved in the commercial and claims management for three major large diameter cross country gas pipelines on behalf of major contractors Alfred McAlpine / PPS GmbH Joint Venture and McConnell Dowell.

2002 - 2006

The company continued to grow and went from strength to strength, successfully securing multiple overseas contracts. Through hard work and providing a results driven quality service, ALA expanded internationally undertaking commercial and dispute resolution projects in Russia, Isle of Man, Ireland and the USA.

2007 - 2011

New offices were opened in Cumbria, Preston and Essex to service clients and keep up with the company's rapid growth. ALA worked hard to implement processes and procedures and secured ISO9001 accreditation. Focusing on construction claims and adjudications, ALA had several high profile successes.


Byron Tyson joined the ALA team, later becoming a Director and playing a key role in developing the business. Work loads increased and ALA was working in South Africa on one of the largest and most complex major pipeline projects in the world, as well as in Qatar on Barwa Commercial Avenue on the world's longest building.


Karen Turlay-Rose joined ALA as the Recruitment Director, playing a major part in sourcing talent, building and developing business relationships and providing support to staff and Directors. ALA opened new high profile offices in central London, the Strand.

2012 - 2014

ALA continued to have success in domestic and international markets. Notably, securing a major project at Runcorn Energy from Waste plant, the largest of its type in Europe. ALA deployed a multidisciplinary team of 20 staff on this major project, which became the first of many EfW projects for ALA.


Tom Lamb joined the family business in 2014, having successfully earned a first class LLB from the College of Law in London, and completing four years as a solicitor for the distinguished international London law practice, Fladgate LLP.

2015 - 2016

ALA continued to expand, forming new and lasting business relationships with key clients, locally and internationally. Major projects undertaken in this period included the prestigious Windermere Boat Museum, The Shangri La Hotel at the Shard, the Olympic Stadium conversion and BP's Khazzen Pipeline in Oman.


It was a big year for ALA - new offices in Trafalgar Square, London were secured, as well as a move to larger, purpose built offices at Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria. Adrian Lamb sadly passed away following treatment for an aggressive form of cancer, and Tom Lamb took over the reins as Managing Director.


Following continued growth and expansion, as well as new internal appointments, ALA completed a comprehensive rebranding, invested in new technology and gained accreditations in ISO14001, ISO18001 and Achilles UVDB.


ALA has a growing reputation for success across the construction and energy sectors. ALA has invested heavily in staff training opportunities, including the launch of a Degree Apprenticeship scheme. Our focus is to cement and create new relationships with key partners in the UK and abroad as part of an ongoing Lamb 2022 business plan, which provides clear strategic direction for the business.
