Rochester-based Clark Patterson Lee has acquired the largest architecture, engineering and planning firm in Greensboro, N.C., the latest step in the company’s expanding footprint in the Southeast.
Moser Mayer Phoenix Associates will join the ever-growing Clark Patterson Lee team on Nov. 1. Moser Mayer Phoenix employs 20 design professionals.
“Not only do our two firms complement each other in terms of practice disciplines, but there are amazing synergies in our market segments and company cultures as well,” CLP Chief Executive Officer Todd Liebert said in a statement.
The addition of Moser Mayer Phoenix means Clark Patterson Lee will employ 330 people in 13 offices, including seven in New York: Rochester, Buffalo, Albany, Binghamton, Jamestown, Olean and Newburgh. The firm also has locations in Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C.; Greenville, S.C.; and two in Atlanta.
“The blending of MMPA’s 31 years of signature work in our community with the resources and experience of CPL’s East Coast footprint, along with the resulting growth of the combined firms, will provide exciting opportunities for Greensboro and the greater Triad,” Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan said in a release.
In Rochester, Clark Patterson Lee is designing the $253 million Sands-Constellation Critical Care Center addition for the Rochester Regional Health System and the $57 million expansion of Seneca Park Zoo.
Their completed work includes the Rochester General Hospital Emergency Department, the University of Rochester outpatient imaging center and UR’s Levin Autism Clinic.
CPL projects in the Southeast include the Mint Museum in Charlotte, the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia, S.C., and the pedestrian bridge to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Signature projects of MMPA include First National Bank Field, home of baseball’s Class A Greensboro Grasshoppers, and the Greensboro Science Center SciQuarium.
