Perkins Eastman and Lee, Burkhart, Liu (LBL Architects) announce intent to merge

International design and architecture firm Perkins Eastman and top California healthcare design firm Lee, Burkhart, Liu (LBL Architects) have announced their intent to merge practices.

The merger will significantly build upon the established practices - especially in the healthcare sector - of both firms and diversify their combined expertise, particularly on the west coast. The combined international firm will total 880 employees, adding enhanced resources, client value, and opportunities for employees.

The firms will combine their practices in San Francisco, California, and maintain and grow the practice in Los Angeles, California. The merger is planned to be effective as of 1 January, 2015.

“Perkins Eastman has had a longstanding commitment to expanding on the west coast, and this merger will realise that commitment for the benefit of our clients and staff. LBL’s respected healthcare architectural design practice and established relationships with some of the top regional healthcare providers naturally align with Perkins Eastman’s vision and goals,” said Bradford Perkins, Chairman of Perkins Eastman.
