Environetics Design Joins NORR
Environetics Design Inc. (EDI), an integrated practice of architects, engineers and interior designers with offices in Philadelphia and Malvern, PA, has joined NORR, a full-service global firm, to bring NORR’s U.S. operations to the east coast and expand EDI’s reach.
“I look forward to EDI’s contribution as the NORR brand continues to grow in prominence throughout the U.S. The addition of EDI’s east coast operations diversifies the U.S. portfolio of our Chicago, Detroit and Sacramento offices focused largely on retail, restaurant, hospitality and residential markets. They are a key addition to the NORR family.“ – Brian Gerstmar, President (NORR US) and COO (NORR)
EDI’s motivations to join NORR were to successfully compete with top tier firms throughout North America, expand the capacity to serve their growing list of national and global clients and to increase professional growth and development opportunities for its talented staff.
“At EDI, our focus has always been our client’s success. NORR shares this value and gives us a platform to help our current and future clients with a wider array of project types and to help them with ever more complex assignments as we contribute to our new firm’s deep capacity to deliver truly integrated design services.” – Bill Westhafer, Vice President, EDI
Leadership at EDI will remain in place. Bill Westhafer has been appointed as Vice President of the two EDI offices and John Kohlhas as Director of Operations. The firm will transition to the NORR name in the coming months.
