The architecture, engineering and consulting firm Johnson Mirmiran & Thompson, or JMT, has acquired RCG Architects and launched JMT Architecture to consolidate architecture and interior design services under one name.
JMT officials say the acquisition of RCG, Baltimore’s oldest operating architectural firm, will allow them to enhance the services they offer in their higher education and cultural buildings practice. RCG was founded in 1907.
“With rapid growth projected for the higher education market, we saw RCG’s addition as an opportunity for us to join our existing education markets with a higher education powerhouse and amp-up our services,” said Al Rubeling, senior vice president and architecture practice leader with JMT, in a statement.
RCG’s existing client roster includes Georgetown University, the University of Washington and the University of Akron.
JMT employs about 1,500 people in 37 offices around the United States, and the creation of JMT Architecture will allow officials to offer services under one name in Baltimore, Cleveland, Columbus, Ohio, and Philadelphia.
