“ADG and Blatt Architects have collaborated on some of the most iconic projects in the Oklahoma City metro,” ADG President Tom Wilson said. “This merger brings together two legacy firms that have been in existence for more than 20 years and enjoy a rich history of providing professional services in the creative built environment to both public and private clients throughout the Southwest with a concerted focus on Oklahoma City and Edmond.”
For almost two decades, ADG and Blatt Architects were integral in the successful completion of the First Americans Museum with ADG as the owner’s representative and Blatt Architects as co-prime architect. Additionally, the two firms worked collaboratively on several OKC MAPS projects and are currently collaborating on a City of Norman Public Works master plan.
“After working with the ADG team for 19 years, I have observed and appreciated a shared common vision, goals and approach in our practices,” Blatt Architects President and CEO Tony Blatt said. “We are humbled for this opportunity to fashion an innovative firm with a focus on forward-thinking design, integrity and service, and are confident that this merger will position the combined entity for growth to meet the expanding A/E and program management needs of the entire Central Oklahoma region.”
ADG has called Oklahoma City its home since its inception in 1975 and is proud of the many successful client and agency relationships formed over the course of the past 47 years. ADG works with clients to provide attractive environments for government, education, housing, healthcare, offices and recreation. The firm recently completed design work for the historic First National Center renovation and the iconic Belle Isle Library. Select past notable projects include Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, Dean McGee Eye Institute, the exterior renovation of the Oklahoma State Capitol and program consultant for the MAPS for Kids, MAPS 3 and MAPS 4 programs.
