Galloway & Company Inc., a national architecture and engineering firm based in Denver, has purchased JRCA Architects of Salt Lake City.
JRCA specializes in the design of healthcare, public works and public safety facilities, as well as government and justice centers. Galloway said JRCA’s expertise in these markets will complement its portfolio in the commercial, multifamily, industrial and federal markets.
“Our goal has always been to provide both the expertise and capacity to meet the unique needs of our clients,” said JRCA founder Jim Child. “Joining Galloway expands our capabilities while also enabling our staff to grow as professionals within the company. This acquisition provides exciting opportunities for our clients as well as our team members.”
“JRCA brings an excellent reputation and resume to Galloway,” said Galloway President Dave Guetig. “This has been a long, but fulfilling, process for the JRCA shareholders as well as the Galloway transition team. We believe that the alignment of culture and values between JRCA and Galloway will help make this a smooth transition.”
In addition to its Denver headquarters, Galloway has six regional offices. The firm’s staff of nearly 250 professionals supports projects nationwide. Its active portfolio includes projects in 26 states.
“This acquisition evolved from our desire to create opportunity for Galloway’s staff and clients,” said Kristoffer Kenton, Galloway director of architecture.
The effective date of the acquisition was Sept. 1. JRCA will retain its Salt Lake City office and staff and will continue operations under the Galloway name.
