How Architects Are Rebuidling Their Firms

Growing architecture firms are adopting structures modeled after law firms that share ownership with multiple partners.

"Diamond and Schmitt is the latest of several Canadian architectural practices to embrace the law-firm model of distributed ownership. It's a list that also includes Zeidler Partnership Architects, which boasts 10 principals, Dunlop Architects Inc., with 14, and Moriyama and Teshima, with six... Large U.S. engineering and design firms that have doubled or tripled their ownership base in the past five years include Edwards and Kelsey of New Jersey, HNTB of Missouri and CH2M Hill of Colorado."
