HDR Architecture, an operating company within HDR Inc., Omaha, Neb., and CUH2A, Princeton, N.J., have announced their intent to merge to create a comprehensive science and technology design firm. HDR Architecture is one of the world’s leading healthcare design firms, and CUH2A is the world’s largest science and technology firm.

 

The merged firm will employ nearly 1,700 employees in more than 40 locations worldwide. The union is expected to be completed by the end of June.

Reflecting on the research and development industry, CUH2A president Scott Butler said, “The world of science is changing. Our clients are crossing global boundaries and working across disciplines to create the big breakthroughs in research. The CUH2A and HDR alliance puts us in the best position to enable these trends. We will bring together unmatched knowledge in every area of science research for every part of the world.”

Once the deal is completed, the science and technology groups of each company will merge into one business unit. Executives from HDR and CUH2A will form an integrated management team for the combined science and technology unit, which Butler will lead.
