JMT Acquires RCG Architects, Launches JMT Architecture

Acquisition To Further Boost JMT’s Growth in Higher Education Architecture Market

BALTIMORE - FEBRUARY 13, 2018 - Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, Inc. (JMT) - a 1500-person multi-disciplinary planning, design, technology, and construction management consulting firm with 37 offices throughout the U.S. - announced the launch of JMT Architecture and the acquisition of RCG Architects.

The acquisition of RCG Architects - founded in 1907 and Baltimore’s oldest operating architectural firm - enables JMT to enhance the services of their robust higher education and cultural buildings practice.

JMT Architecture consolidates the four locations – Baltimore, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Columbus - offering architecture and interior design under one name.

“This is the perfect way to start 2018 and I couldn’t be more excited for the New Year,” says Al Rubeling, FAIA, JMT Senior Vice President and JMT Architecture Practice Leader. “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.”

Continues Rubeling, “RCG has an impressive client roster - from the Georgetown University Law Center to the University of Washington and the University of Akron – and will no doubt give us a foot in the door with new geographic regions in the U.S.”

RCG’s Joe Briggs and Jeremiah Fairbank and JMT Architecture’s Ed Kohls, FAIA, LEED AP, former principal with Ayers Saint Gross, will lead the higher education team.
