Shive-Hattery takes over the Indiana architectural design firm

CEDAR RAPIDS – Shive-Hattery strengthened its presence by acquiring Epoch, an 11-person firm in South Bend.

The architecture and engineering firm from Cedar Rapids announced on Friday that the expansion would complement the design capabilities of both companies.

The integration will also enable expanded customer offerings, including in- design services ranging from architecture and engineering to interior design and landscape architecture.

“Our two organizations value being a trusted part of our communities and an unwavering focus on building and maintaining long-term customer relationships,” said Jim Lee, president of Shive-Hattery.

“Epoch joining Shive-Hattery is a conscious step towards sustainable growth and demonstrates our commitment to providing comprehensive design solutions with the best talent.”

The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Epoch was founded in 2012 and will trade as Epoch, a division of Shive-Hattery, the company said in a press release.

Epoch founder Kyle Copelin said in the press release that his company’s leadership and staff will remain with the company with no disruption to customer relationships or projects.

Shive-Hattery announced in November that it had acquired Lincoln, Neb., Studio951, an 18-person architectural firm.

Founded in 1895, Shive-Hattery has 425 employees and nine offices in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Nebraska, including Cedar Rapids, Iowa , Des Moines, and the Quad Cities.
