Architecture Firm SLAM Buys 5 CBRE I Heery Practices
Architectural firm the S/L/A/M Collaborative has acquired five CBRE | Heery architectural design practices focused on the healthcare, sports facilities and justice (courthouse) markets, doubling the number of its offices.
About 70 CBRE | Heery employees at the company’s healthcare design practices in Denver, Iowa City and Philadelphia; the justice design practice in Orlando; and the sports design practice in Atlanta joined SLAM when the deal closed in March.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The deal is SLAM’s first since its 2018 merger with Frank Webb Architects that expanded the company’s footprint to the West Coast.
“When the chance to acquire these five Heery offices first arose early last year, we were still in the initial phases of our integration with Frank Webb Architects, but this opportunity was too good to pass up,” SLAM President Robert Pulito said in a press release, adding that it “enhances our deep expertise in critical segments of the market.”
Glastonbury, Connecticut-based SLAM provides construction services, landscape architecture, engineering and interior design. Among the company’s clients are Raytheon Technologies, Pfizer, the University of Notre Dame and Johns Hopkins University and Hospital.
