Architecture firm opens West Side office
A national architecture and engineering firm has set up an office on the West Side.
Rochester, New York-based Bergmann Associates said today it opened its second Michigan office in Grand Rapids, at 560 5th St. NW.
The company’s other Michigan office is in Lansing. The two offices will have 70 employees combined.
Despite not having a physical office in Grand Rapids, Bergmann Associates has worked on multiple projects in Grand Rapids, including the Home for Veterans Bridge and work involved with the Vernon J. Ehlers Amtrak Passenger Station.
“Grand Rapids has always been good to us,” Bergmann Associates President Pete Giovenco said. “We opened an office here to demonstrate our continued commitment to our regional clients, as well as to attract top professionals in this area to work at our firm.”
Bergmann offers a range of services from architecture and interior design, to highway and traffic engineering.
The firm has more than 400 employees spread across its footprint, which includes multiple offices in New York, as well as Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida.
“We’ve been committed to Michigan for 20 years now, starting with a staff of two and growing into the full-service operation you see today,” said Rick Chelotti, Midwest Region SVP, Bergmann Associates. “We’re excited to make a brick-and-mortar commitment to Grand Rapids, enabling us to serve our existing clients and expand with new clients across the region.”
