Ankrom Moisan Architects (AMA) Inc. acquired San Francisco-based Forum Design, giving the Portland-based architect an official presence in a market in which it has been active during the past decade. The buy increases AMA’s employee count to 350, with 240 in Portland, 100 in Seattle, and the balance in San Francisco. The company focuses on mixed-use, hospitality, student housing, senior housing, health care, affordable housing and workplace projects.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be teaming up with Warner (Schmalz) and Forum Design,” said Dave Heater, AMA’s president. “Warner has been here for decades and knows the Bay Area culture and regulations inside-out. He and his team understand how to successfully design urban housing in the city.”
