Partnership Creates Firm with Expertise Across Broad Spectrum of Markets
NOVEMBER 9, 2020
The leadership teams of BDG Architects and FleischmanGarcia Architecture are thrilled to announce the merger of their firms effective November 9, 2020. Bringing together the talents and resources of these long-established practices will result in a team of over 130 design professionals located in six offices throughout the Southeast with the headquarters remaining in Tampa, Florida.
Chris Kirschner, AIA, President of BDG Architects (www.BDGLLP.com) adds, “BDG and FleischmanGarcia complement each other very well. I have been an admirer of FleischmanGarcia’s work for over 20 years and they have an incredibly talented team of project architects and interior designers with an average of thirty years of experience each. They also have an impressive portfolio of award-winning projects that have earned them a reputation as one of the top design firms in the Tampa Bay region.”
The partnership will merge the design talents and project experience from both firms enabling the combined teams to pursue more opportunities and elevate their standards for design excellence across an impressively diverse project base. It will also provide their clients with a deeper bench of experienced project leaders, as well as more growth opportunities for their staff.
“We, here at FleischmanGarcia, are very excited about joining with Chris and BDG Architects as we continue our practice into our second 48 years. We share the same culture of design excellence, exceptional service, and giving back to the community. Together, we will provide our clients with enhanced capabilities and ensure continuity and growth,” adds Sol Fleischman, AIA, Founder and CEO of FleischmanGarcia Architecture (www.FleischmanGarcia.com).
The combined firms will, collectively, specialize in a broad spectrum of project types including multi-family, retail, mixed-use, hospitality, K-12 and higher education, healthcare, governmental, and institutional. Services will include planning, architecture, interior design, and program management.
