ADG, an architecture, engineering, and program management business based in Oklahoma City, has merged with Blatt Architects, a firm based in Edmond. In a statement to the media, ADG President Tom Wilson said, “ADG and Blatt Architects have partnered upon the most prominent works in the Oklahoma City area.”
“This partnership brings together two prestige businesses that have been in operation for more than two decades and have a track record of providing business services within an artistic built environment to both commercial and government customers all through the Southwest, with a particular concentration on Oklahoma City and Edmond.”
He said ADG is “committed to the growth of many talented architects and engineers” in Oklahoma. “We will continue to provide architectural design and construction services in a practical, professional manner with a focus on excellence and compliance with local, state, and federal regulations.”
“Our goal,” he continued, “is to offer our client base expert solutions for architectural design and construction.” Edmond-based Blatt Architects specializes in engineering and project management. He stressed that Blatt Architects will retain its name.
The company has a history of working together with the completion of the First American Museum being the noteworthy ones. Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, Dean McGee Eye Institute, and the exterior renovation of the state Capitol are also major project that has shown the collaboration of the two companies.
What makes this merging great is the achievement of the respectable leaders of the companies. Both will be in the ADG ownership group. Julie Blatt, who earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Oklahoma State University, began her engineering career with ConocoPhillips and later worked for The Benham Cos as an engineer and project manager for many years.
Blatt Architects are also the one behind the UCO chad richison Stadium. The stadium is named after Chad Richison for his many contributions to UCO.
She most recently worked with Blatt Architects as the chief operating officer and as a project director for a variety of projects. The merger between ADG and Blatt is expected to make a strong impact on how projects are executed. This merger provides their clients with an exceptional talent pool that will expand their efforts to bring even more high-quality architecture, engineering, and project management services to our clients.
Tony Blatt, a bachelor’s degree in architecture alumnus of Oklahoma State University, worked at HTB and Benham before joining Hornbeek Blatt, where he was a principal for further than two decades.
The merger between ADG and Blatt Architects will be beneficial to both companies, as the combined strengths will be very helpful in the completion of new projects. The merger will also bring a larger pipeline of new projects to complete and will help both companies get more focused on their customers. They will both have offices in Oklahoma and Edmond.
