MCA Architecture acquires KOP Architects
Baltimore-based MCA Architecture announced Tuesday it has acquired KOP Architects of Richmond.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. MCA already has offices in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. It will close its current Reston location and consolidate the two Virginia offices in Richmond.
MCA will gain clients including Virginia Commonwealth University, VCU Health, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. Founded 35 years ago, MCA provides architecture, planning, interior design and facilities support services to institutional, government and corporate clients.
“With the boost that MCA will be able to provide to the Richmond location in terms of design savvy, technology, thought leadership, project management process, staffing and business development and the specific expertise and talent brought on board by our expanded Virginia team, MCA Architecture expects to make great strides in how we can continue to improve professional service to our clients across our entire geographic footprint,” MCA President Stephen Bates said in a statement.
KOP Architects Principals Don Guthrie and Ed Gillikin will join MCA as principals and stockholders.
