"These firms' specialties and cultures are a perfect match," said BSA LifeStructures President Melissa Davis. "We're excited to combine H+sp's experience and relationships in this market with the increased capacity and services BSA LifeStructures can offer."
"Joining forces with BSA LifeStructures allows us to offer our clients the resources of a much larger firm with the same small-firm mentality and attention to detail," said H+sp Principal Kelly Halls. "It will allow us to tackle the kind of bigger projects in other markets that clients have been asking us to."
Founded in Austin in 2008 as schneiderHALLS design, H+sp is a 17-person firm led by principals Kelly Halls, Julie Schneider and Craig Puccetti. The H+sp principals will join BSA LifeStructures Regional Director Daniel Carl and MEP Engineering Director Jake Snyder as principals of the Austin office.
"Working with H+sp over the last few months has reinforced our belief that, together, we can provide Austin and surrounding areas with an integrated A&E firm truly focused on creating better healing spaces," said Daniel Carl.
Davis noted that the quality match between H+sp and BSA LifeStructures is reflected in their similar mission statements: H+sp's includes the phrase "inspired healthcare environments;" BSA LifeStructures' speaks of "inspired solutions that improve lives."
The two firms will combine under the BSA LifeStructures name. The resulting firm is registered to provide architecture and engineering services in 49 states. BSA LifeStructures was founded in Indianapolis in 1975 and now has 222 employees in Atlanta, Austin, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis and Raleigh, NC. The opening of the Austin office in 2012 was part of a commitment to the central Texas region and surrounding areas.
