CallisonRTKL Launches New Brand Identity

The Combined Practice Ushers in a New Era of Architecture and Design

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - October 20, 2015) - Callison and RTKL, two of the world's most influential planning and design firms, have officially joined forces as CallisonRTKL. Blending the best of two similar mindsets, CallisonRTKL's expanded footprint and increased depth of services allows the firm to better respond to market demands and client goals. Both companies were previously acquired by the Netherlands-based Arcadis, the leading global design and consultancy for natural and built assets.

"With CallisonRTKL now combined under Arcadis, we are well on our way to redefining the global architecture, design and planning consultancy," said Lance Josal FAIA, President and CEO of CallisonRTKL. "But it's not size that sets us apart, it's the fresh thinking, bold ideas and new ways of solving problems that really make us a top player."

By combining strengths, CallisonRTKL now has a dominant place in the commercial and retail markets and ranks as the number one retail design firm globally, according to Building Design + Construction. Under the leadership of Norm Garden FAIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C for the firm's commercial practice group and Eric Lagerberg AIA, LEED AP, NCARB for the retail practice group, CallisonRTKL will continue to increase its global footprint.

Karl Stumpf AIA, LEED AP BD+C will continue to lead the firm's workplace practice group. With a focus on corporate and public clients, workplace efforts will center on relationship growth with clients in a variety of sectors to help them create workplaces that align with their mission and business objectives.

The healthcare practice group, led by Brad Barker FAIA, will forge ahead designing facilities of the future that put an emphasis on operational efficiency and systematic and quantitative ways to help facilities run at peak performance.

CallisonRTKL represents growth across the practice and a continued commitment to creating a better world for our clients, our communities and our employees.
