Lamar Johnson Collaborative (LJC), a Clayco subsidiary, will combine with Clayco-owned architecture firm BatesForum. The Chicago-based firm will offer a platform of integrated design and delivery across its five offices.
“The inefficiency that remains in the traditional design-bid-build construction model needs to change,” said LJC CEO Lamar Johnson (pictured). “We believe we can leverage our combined firm’s proven capabilities in integrated execution, to bring a similar approach to a broader range of projects and clients.
“We will be able to use the deep bench of resources and industry-leading technology of Clayco to deliver the best solution for the project client, whether we are the designer, executive architect, or providing integrated delivery and full turnkey solutions,” Johnson added.
“The future of design is integrated,” said Clayco CEO and founder Bob Clark. “Our integrated delivery model will set a new standard by completely disrupting the inefficiency of the traditional paradigm of design-bid-build.”
