“BA is a progressive and high-performing firm that embodies our core values,” Stoler said in a statement. “Gaining bench strength and adding geospatial solutions to their architecture, engineering, and interior design capabilities will expand our collective ability to advance the built environment, whether we’re talking about ports and airports, health care facilities, educational facilities, municipal parks, hotels, etc. This combination makes us all stronger.”
BA Chairman of the Board and Principal in Charge Willy Bermello said BA chose to join Woolpert to deepen its architect-engineer services and to tap into new and adjacent industries with Woolpert’s geospatial and strategic consulting capabilities.
With about 200 Dayton-area employees, Woolpert has more than 2,000 employees and 60 offices on five continents in all.
