MGAC Completes Merger With Basis LLC; Establishes Market Leading Project Management, Cost and Risk Consultancy Practice

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2014) - MGAC announced today that it has completed a merger with Basis LLC, a leading cost and risk consultancy headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Basis is comprised of former directors of Davis Langdon/AECOM and led by Nick Butcher. Prior to founding Basis, Nick was the former national leader of Davis Langdon's U.S. practice.

Basis will provide MGAC clients with a cost and risk management consultancy, to ensure that its clients' goals are met in terms of the cost, value and quality of their project developments. 

While the merger was only recently completed, the two firms have enjoyed a longstanding relationship and have already successfully collaborated on projects totaling over $400m across the United States including major aviation, cultural, and corporate headquarters projects.

The merger will allow the two firms to further develop their consultancy practice and leadership in the industry, offering comprehensive integrated project cost, risk and delivery solutions. The combined talent, resources and professional diversity will better serve its national and international client base, expanding MGAC's presence in California and the Western United States.

"MGAC's merger with Basis is a natural next step in our long-term strategic goal to provide our clients with market leading integrated project delivery. Nick and the Basis team are acknowledged industry leaders, and bring best practices to further MGAC's professionalism. The sum is so much greater than the parts," said Mark G. Anderson, President of MGAC. Nick Butcher concurred. "MGAC is a leading provider of Owner's Representation and Project Management services across the country with an international presence. We have great synergy in the sectors we service, but most importantly, we share a commitment to thought leadership, to being a trusted advisor to our clients and simply, to being a great place to work for our employees."
