The joint capabilities of PBK and McGranahan will allow the firm to meet the needs of a growing client base in the region by leveraging both the national exposure, experience, and evidence-based design practices of PBK and the regionally concentrated programming, design and construction administration services of McGranahan.

“We are excited to join forces with PBK, a move that marks a significant milestone in our journey,” said Christopher Lilley.  “This partnership will allow us to leverage PBK’s national presence and resources to enhance our service offerings and reach. We remain deeply committed to our architectural vision and values, and we believe that with PBK, we can achieve even more impactful results for our clients and the broader community. We’re looking forward to this new chapter of growth and innovation.”

PBK and McGranahan’s combined team of experts will meet architectural design needs in the K-12 and higher education sector in the Pacific Northwest, as the region has been marked by an expansion in educational facilities and programs, aiming to accommodate the rising student population and evolving academic needs across the region.

The acquisition represents a significant development for PBK’s continued growth nationally. PBK’s national strategy of targeted partnerships – including in the Pacific Northwestern U.S. – has expanded the firm’s presence into new regions and markets as a leader in architectural planning and design.
