McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture, headquartered in Greenville, has acquired Georgia-based Virgo Gambill Architects.

The acquisition, which was effective Dec. 7, makes the eighth Southeast office and second in Georgia for McMillan Pazdan Smith, the regional, studio-based architecture, planning, and advisory services firm, a McMillan news release stated.

 Virgo Gambill Architects has served the Augusta, Evans, North Augusta, Aiken and surrounding communities since 1984, according to the release. It has earned a record of ongoing client relationships and project delivery. Notable portfolio work includes the Augusta – Richmond County Municipal Building, Augusta Back, Wheeless Road Elementary School and the Augusta Technical College Columbia County Campus, the release stated.

“MPS is excited by this expansion to support and grow our client relationships across the Augusta, Evans, North Augusta, and Aiken region,” Chad Cousins, CEO of McMillan Pazdan Smith, said in the release. “The Virgo Gambill team live, play, and serve daily in the region with exceptional client focus. They share our firm’s commitment to inspire and build up communities through design purposed for the good of all. We plan to invest in the VGA team, and will add resources, design depth, and new architectural services for the region’s institutional, public, and private-sector clients.

The integration of Virgo Gambill into McMillan Pazdan Smith further bolsters MPS’ existing ties to many of the communities and clients in the area, while expanding their regional practice supporting healthcare, higher education, K-12, commercial, mixed-use, industrial development and government, civic and community spaces, the release stated. 

“Our merger with McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture provides a significant investment to help us best serve the forward design and planning needs of our growing region. Our prior design partnership on several projects has demonstrated how well our firms are aligned together,” said Joe Gambill, owner, Virgo Gambill Architects, in the release.
