CPL provides architectural and engineering services to public- and private-sector clients. The new alliance will combine talents and resources and was created to enable the firms to meet even more complex and diverse needs of clients.

“CPL is a progressive and client-focused firm that brings a hands-on and collaborative approach to every endeavor,” Todd Liebert, CEO of CPL, said in a news release. “BDG and CPL share a common set of core principles and mission-driven values that will make this partnership a success and position both firms for growth in the future.”

A staple on the Rochester design landscape since 1975, CPL brings more than 30 years of healthcare expertise and leadership — with more than $500 billion in healthcare construction projects — to the partnership with BDG.

Recent CPL healthcare projects include a critical care tower for Rochester Regional Health, a comprehensive cancer care center for FirstHealth of the Carolinas and design of a new level 1 trauma emergency department and intensive care unit for Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist.

“We are true partners and advisors to our health system clients, and have helped them move the needle where it matters most: flexibility, operational efficiency, safety, sustainability, and a superior patient and caregiver experience,” said Tim Knapp, healthcare practice leader for CPL.

CPL has 485 employees in 19 offices across five states and provides multi-disciplined architecture, engineering and planning for the healthcare, community, academic and transportation sectors.

BDG was established in 1994 and is a 130-person, full-service architectural, space planning, interior design and program management firm.

“Our partnership with CPL will allow us to offer new services and expertise with smart solutions and a pragmatic approach, BDG president Chris Kirschner said. “The collaboration is a natural evolution in the execution of both firms’ strategic initiatives and builds on BDG’s efforts in developing a high performing healthcare design team.”
