St. Louis Acquisition Grows its Metropolitan Presence in Midwest
By KdG
Shive-Hattery announces that it has acquired KdG Architects, a 20-person architecture, engineering and interior design firm in St. Louis, Missouri. Positioning itself in one of the major metropolitan areas in the Midwest, the St. Louis acquisition further deepens Shive-Hattery’s reach in the regional and national markets while strengthening its design capabilities for hospitality, gaming, commercial and government clients.
KdG Architects’ strong national portfolio in hospitality and gaming was very attractive to us as these are the markets we currently serve regionally,”said Shive-Hattery President Jennifer Bennett, SE, PE.  “Clients across the nation can expect an unparalleled experience as our people work collaboratively across a network of 14 design offices.”

KdG Architects will operate as KdG Architects, a Division of Shive-Hattery, with W. Peter Maruska continuing as leader of the St. Louis office.

Past teaming on projects helped build relationships between the two firms,” said W. Peter Maruska, AIA, President and CEO of KdG Architects. “The clear cultural fit and energy to grow markets like higher education and services like civil engineering and land surveying, made this a seamless transition.”
