CHICAGO — Architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative (LJC), a subsidiary of constructor Clayco, has combined with Clayco-owned architecture firm BatesForum, creating one firm of more than 240 professionals in five offices. The expanded firm has expertise in commercial, residential, multi-use, interiors, healthcare, retail, planning, landscape, education and industrial architecture. Among the firm’s unique capabilities are its technical assurance group, which consults with project teams to apply lesson from the built environment to projects still on the drawing board, and the virtual design and construction team, which provides building information modeling support. The combined firm now exceeds 200 active architecture and design projects in 24 states, while together with parent company Clayco, the overall construction value of projects exceeds $4 billion. Chicago-based Clayco acquired LJC last fall.
