NAC Architecture merges with Ohio-based health care, analytics, design firm

UPDATED: Tue., Aug. 4, 2020

NAC Architecture has merged with an Ohio-based health care analytics, planning and design firm, the company announced Monday.

Under the merger with Trinity: Planning, Design, Architecture, existing NAC Architecture offices in Spokane, Seattle and Los Angeles will operate under NAC. Trinity’s Columbus office and NAC’s health care studio will become Trinity: NAC, according to a news release.

Trinity’s leadership team will join NAC’s executive team and board of directors, according to the release.

The merger allows both firms to expand design work in the health care and higher education sectors.

“This merger is not about getting bigger,” Dana Harbaugh, NAC president and CEO, said in a statement. “Trinity and NAC share a common cultural commitment to personal service, quality, and design innovation. Trinity’s strength in analytics complements our focus on research.”

Financial details of the merger were not disclosed.

NAC and Trinity have a decadelong relationship and previously partnered on the Kootenai Health medical office expansion in Coeur d’Alene.

The combined firm employs more than 230 people.

NAC, founded in 1960, has designed numerous projects in the Spokane area, some of which include Joel E. Ferris and Shadle Park high schools as well as the Riverfront Park Looff Carrousel facility and Pavilion. The firm also renovated the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox and redeveloped a former Macy’s building into The M building in downtown Spokane.
