09/26/2018 | Back to News

Wendel is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of The Architecture Group (TAG), now a Wendel Company, a firm specializing in Institutional Architecture in Atlanta and the southeast, to enhance its offering to include additional transportation, educational and infrastructure expertise in the area. Two of their main clients are MARTA (the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) and the University System of Georgia.

Wendel and The Architecture Group share a common purpose and passion for designing transit facilities, higher education and water infrastructure facilities and are in complete alignment in terms of their service to clients, project types and experience, and most importantly, corporate culture. TAG’s current clients in the Atlanta area will also benefit from their newly extended professional resources and advanced technology; especially the addition of engineering and construction professionals in house that will give projects the opportunity to be managed by a simpler team.

“It is an exceptional opportunity for The Architecture Group to join Wendel, a company of like vision, philosophy and culture. It offers TAG the ability to frame our future in the larger context of the AEC industry throughout the southeast. The continued growth we are experiencing in Atlanta and the region requires greater expertise and expanded resources. It also requires the simple desire to serve clients in the best way possible, a TAG philosophy since its inception. As in the past, and today as part of Wendel, we plan to do just that.” – Bobbie Unger, TAG.

Atlanta is seeing tremendous growth. Many corporations are establishing major hubs in Atlanta and existing organizations are expanding their presence. Their employees are choosing to live in the urban core creating major revitalization developments. This growth presents a great opportunity for Wendel to expand its national presence. “We are truly excited about the growth Wendel is experiencing nationwide,” said Stewart Haney, President & CEO. “Acquiring The Architecture Group increases our capabilities in the strategic areas that align with our current and future growth plans. TAG greatly complements Wendel—we are able to provide our clients a greater depth of services by uniting the two.”
