Woolpert has acquired Sheehan Nagle Hartray Architects, a full-service architecture firm that specializes in mission critical and technically challenging projects, interior design and predesign services for commercial, civic and education clients. SNHA has offices in Chicago and London.
Principal Neil Sheehan said SNHA wanted to join a nimble, entrepreneurial culture with whom they could develop a visionary, global business strategy. He said in Woolpert, SNHA found transparency and knowledge-sharing across all levels, with clear aspirations for future growth, productivity and success.
“Woolpert shares our drive for design excellence and understands that innovation is evolutionary, while providing services that complement our own,” Sheehan said. “In addition, Woolpert’s geospatial and engineering capabilities underscore our expertise, allowing us to integrate emerging technologies like computational design, digital twins, reality capture, carbon tracking, and virtual and augmented reality.”
Woolpert Vice President and Buildings Sector Leader Suzette Stoler lauded the SNHA staff for their passion, integrity and advancement of next-level, sustainable design.
“We admire what SNHA has accomplished over the last 50 years and are thrilled that they are part of our Woolpert family,” Stoler said. “Together we will enhance our dynamic design culture across the globe, while providing meaningful and sustainable solutions for our clients and the industry.”
“In addition to industry leadership in data center design, SNHA marks another key milestone in our global expansion plan,” Woolpert CEO Scott Cattran said. “With existing Woolpert offices already in North America, Africa, Australia and Asia, SNHA expands our design excellence in Europe and extends our capabilities as a global company.”
