Clark Patterson Lee Expands in Greensboro, North Carolina

Architecture, engineering, planning firm Clark Patterson Lee, a Rochester Chamber member, has expanded its footprint in the southeastern United States by adding an office in Greensboro, North Carolina. CPL has expanded its growing team with the addition of Moser Mayer Phoenix Associates. Principals William D. Moser Jr., AIA; Kenneth C. Mayer Jr., FAIA; Thomas H. Phoenix, PE; J. Alan Cox, AIA; Cheryl S. Graeub, IIDA, and their team of 20 design professionals will join CPL Nov. 1. MMPA, Greensboro’s largest architecture and engineering firm, was established in 1986 as a full-service design firm and serves clients primarily in North Carolina and Virginia. CPL was founded in 1975 in Rochester, New York, and with the new Greensboro location becomes a 330-person full-service design firm with 13 offices, including Rochester, Buffalo, Albany, Jamestown, Olean, Newburgh and Binghamton, New York; Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; Greenville, South Carolina; and two in Atlanta.

The two firms’ service offerings are complementary, with notable project portfolios featuring award-winning designs. In addition to the expertise MMPA provides to its clients in North Carolina and Virginia, expanded design expertise will include health care, K-12 schools, transportation engineering, civil/municipal engineering and landscape architecture. The MMPA team will immediately be integrated into project work in overlapping markets. Both firms have an outstanding reputation in the design of education, corporate, municipal, transportation and recreation/athletic facilities. Some of CPL’s signature projects in the southeast include the Mint Museum (Charlotte, North Carolina), South Carolina State Museum (Columbia, South Carolina), Mercedes-Benz Stadium Pedestrian Bridge (Atlanta,), Dalton State College-Wright School of Business, Atlanta Motorsports Park-Trackside Business Center (Atlanta) and the Pratt & Whitney Training Facility at Columbus Technical College (Columbus, Georgia).

In the northeastern U.S., CPL is designing the new $253 million Sands-Constellation Critical Care Center addition for the Rochester Regional Health System (Rochester, New York), the $57 million Seneca Park Zoo Expansion (Rochester, New York) and the $80 million renovation/expansion of the Orange County Government Center (Goshen, New York).

MMPA’s signature projects include First National Bank Field (Greensboro, North Carolina), the J. Douglas Galyon Multimodal Center (Greensboro, North Carolina), Lab Corp Corporate Headquarters (Burlington, North Carolina), Greensboro Science Center SciQuarium, Duke University’s American Tobacco Complex and Cameron Indoor Stadium improvements (Durham, North Carolina), and Bridgwater College’s Nininger Hall Athletics Center (Bridgewater, Virginia). MMPA has served local government, nonprofit organizations, corporate, higher education and recreation clients throughout North Carolina and Virginia.

It is anticipated that the Greensboro office will grow by  approximately 15% over the next 18 months dependent on backlog and new business initiatives.
