Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee joins Clark Nexsen, PC
RALEIGH, NC, March 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Clark Nexsen, PC, headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia, is pleased to announce that the architecture firm Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee (PBC+L) of Raleigh and Asheville, NC, has officially joined Clark Nexsen.

As a result of this merger, Clark Nexsen will be comprised of a 550-plus, multi-discipline staff including architects, engineers (civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and fire protection), interior designers, landscape architects, planners, and other support personnel. The combined staff represents decades of expertise in educational, Department of Defense, government, corporate, cultural, industrial, recreational, commercial, healthcare, K-12, and environmentally sustainable design and engineering.

For Clark Nexsen, the merger allows the 93-year-old, internationally renowned A/E firm to confirm and enhance its pursuit of design excellence through PBC+L's reputation for award-winning architectural projects. PBC+L has received 35 American Institute of Architects (AIA) design awards in just the last 10 years.

For PBC+L, a 68-year-old company that was ranked 15th in Architect magazine's "Top 50 Firms in the Nation" in 2012, joining Clark Nexsen dramatically broadens the firm's geographic reach, offers the opportunity to secure nationally significant projects, and provides top-tier in-house engineering services to current and future clients.

"Clients and staff from both firms will experience positive change as a result of the merger," said Christopher Stone, PE, F.NSPE, FASCE, president of Clark Nexsen. "In addition to a far deeper level of design services, our clients and our staffs will benefit from our combined engineering, operations, resources, and infrastructure."

Jeffrey Lee, FAIA, a principal with Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee, added: "At the center of this decision is our common desire to underscore our commitment to design excellence and to offer clients an architecture and engineering firm recognized for exceptional, high performance design and professional services."
