Perkins Eastman & EE&K Announce Merger in NYC

The two firms have agreed to merge their practices to form a combined significant player in the industry. The new firm will total almost 600 employees, with Perkins Eastman and EE&K consolidating their New York, Washington DC and China offices.

Chairman of Perkins Eastman, Bradford Perkins FAIA, commented: "EE&K brings an internationally respected large-scale architectural design practice as well as a 50 year record of innovative educational facility design, a distinguished portfolio of historic preservation and adaptive reuse, and a growing practice in China and Vietnam. This merger will be transformative for both practices, and will create an international firm with expanded reach, enhanced capabilities, and value for our clients."

This positive sentiment was echoed by Chairman of Stan Eckstut FAIA: "We have wanted to expand our architectural capabilities. One of our special strengths has been the conceptualisation and design of large-scale mixed-use urban projects. Perkins Eastman-as one of the largest architectural firms-provides proven capabilities in all of the major building types that make up our large-scale designs so that we can implement more of those projects.
