Kasian and HIP Architects to merge
Kasian is involved in contract negotiation processes for a merger with HIP Architects.
Merger and acquisition consultants have likely been drafted in for a new arrangement that will see architecture firm Kasian combine with HIP Architects.
The latter organisation, which is based in Edmonton and has been in operation for more than 70 years, will see its two most senior partners Stewart Inglis and Randy Krebes become principals at Kasian.
Mr Krebes, commenting on the merger, said the companies both share the same set of values, making their combined efforts compatible.
"This merger will enable us to continue providing sustainable, community-based solutions for clients and an excellent platform of growth for our employees," he explained.
With multiple offices across Canada - including Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver - as well as an international presence in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, Kasian is ranked as one of the top 100 architecture, interior design and planning enterprises across the globe.
According to Jim Ebbels, Kasian's managing senior principal, the deal will ensure the two firms are able to "better leverage their collective talents".
