Lubbock-based Parkhill, Smith & Cooper (PSC) has announced a merger with Schrickel, Rollins and Associates Inc. (SRA) of Arlington, giving PSC 10 office locations, including two in the in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, in Arlington and Frisco.
PSC also has Texas offices in Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, El Paso, Lubbock and Midland as well as New Mexico offices in Las Cruces and Rio Rancho.
“This felt like a natural move for our two firms given our history of working with one another and the wealth of knowledge between the two,” SRA President Victor Baxter said in the announcement. “By joining with PSC, our design professionals gain an extensive reach into new markets and business opportunities, and it gives us the ability to provide a broader range of services to our existing clients.”
PSC and SRA had joined on numerous projects in the past.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for PSC to continue to grow as a company by serving more communities in the Arlington and Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex,” said PSC CEO and President Joe Rapier. “By merging these two firms into one company, it strengthens our engineering capability and adds an even stronger design presence in landscape architecture, park development, site development and urban design for our clients.”
