History:
“Hopkins Architects have helped pioneer British architecture since our founding by Sir Michael Hopkins in 1976. The Practice is now led by six Senior Partners and we are based in London, having completed projects throughout the world. Our deeply-rooted architectural, environmental and social convictions guide our designs and we work confidently and collaboratively in a manner appropriate to each client’s needs, ambitions and budget.

At the heart of the Practice’s organisation are Design Teams, which are formed to take a new project from inception to completion and ensure continuity of brief and design intent. These teams are led by a Senior Partner who collaborates on each project with leading engineers, cost-control consultants and other specialists. Experience has taught us that the best buildings come from close cooperation between ourselves, our consultants, and the client and their advisors and we approach every project with this in mind.

We take great pride in our adaptability throughout the design and construction process and we have worked with varied clients ranging from individuals to city councils to Boards of Trustees to developers. We work from offices which we designed ourselves in Marylebone that house a team of approximately 80 architects and staff. In addition, we operate a second Design Studio in Dubai and maintain Project Offices in Tokyo, Shanghai and Munich. The size of our practice has allowed us to gain a breadth of experience from projects in a variety of sectors while maintaining an intimate connection to the development of each design.” [Source]

History:
“In 1946, philosopher and engineer Ove Arup set up his consulting engineering business in London. In the more than 60 years that have followed, the business has grown into an international consulting firm of unparalleled scope, owned in trust for its employees and using the business principles that Ove Arup first set out – and which he articulated for posterity in 1970 in his forward-looking ‘key speech’.

Right from the start, Arup was known for its close and exceptionally productive collaborations with leading and avant-garde architects. In its first two decades, the firm expanded rapidly, and earned a formidable reputation for devising advanced and economical solutions for buildings – a reputation it still enjoys today.

By 1976, Arup’s reputation had become truly global with the completion of the Sydney Opera House. By this time, the firm had opened offices in Northern Europe, Southern Africa, South East Asia and Australia. Its breadth of expertise was already considerable: this ranged fromoffshore engineering, acoustics, facades, and specialist skills such as impact, blast, risk and seismic engineering, to relatively-niche areas such as designing transportation containers for nuclear waste.

The firm’s portfolio today is broad and wide-ranging. Many of the world’s most iconic sports stadia are Arup projects – such as Beijing’s Water Cube, the Singapore Sport’s Hub and London Aquatics Centre.

Arup’s work goes beyond buildings and infrastructure, however. We collaborated with car manufacturers on the design of the SuperLight car, which uses considerably less energy than the petrol equivalent. Through our Operational Readiness, Activation and Transition (ORAT) service we help clients and other stakeholders plan for the seamless opening and operation of major facilities like airports and hospitals or for major events. Arup has also developed a range of proprietary computer modelling tools which it sells around the world, as well as innovations such as our SoundLab, an aural-realisation tool with which clients can hear subjectively how different design options perform acoustically – before they are actually built.

Arup now has over 91 offices across Europe, North America, Africa, Australasia and South East Asia. We employ more than 11,000 people globally. Our revenue in the year ending March 2014 exceeded £1bn.” (Source)

History:
Austin started out as Austin Brothers Bridge Company in 1894 when George and Frank Austin teamed up to form their own bridge building company in Dallas. In 1918, they decided to primarily focus on bridge fabrication, and the contracting part of the company was purchased by Charles R. Moore, who changed the name to Austin Bridge Company and Associated Companies in 1924. In 1974, Austin Industries, the parent company of Austin Commercial , was formed as the company began to diversify their portfolio. Austin Commercial was founded one year later as the company began to enter the commercial building market. Today Austin Industries maintains three branches: Austin Bridge & Road, Austin Commercial, and Austin Industrial (founded in 1983).

In 1986, Charles Moore’s grandson, William T.Solomon, transferred 60 percent ownership of the company to its employees at no cost and set up a plan for the company to be completely employee-owned by the year 2000. This plan worked out, and today Austin Industries exists as an employee stock ownership plan, or ESOP, company.

Austin Commercial now operates in 10 offices spanning five states, and is one of the largest and most diversified commercial construction companies in the United States.

Architectural Engineers Collaborative

Austin, Texas 78756
512 472 2111

History:

Architectural Engineers Collaborative (AEC) was founded by Chuck Naeve, who has “managed structural engineering projects and business activities of engineering firms for over thirty years.”  AEC has a reputation of working closely with architects to generate structural solutions that enhance the architectural ideas and principles of a project.  The firm has performed work on many high profile projects in Austin, Texas and is known for working with architects that want the structure to be a visible part of the architecture. Chuck says his firm specializes in  retrofitting and repurposing structures wherein they “work with the existing bones” of a building to generate beautiful structural solutions.  A grand example of this (found below) is the Long Center for the Performing Arts, in downtown Austin.  One of the firm’s more recent projects, scheduled for completion in the summer of 2015, is the Austin Bergstrom International Terminal East Infill.  If you are travelling abroad to or from Austin Texas, you will undoubtedly walk beneath AEC’s elegant work.

History
“John Ernest Dunn (Ernie) founded JE Dunn Construction Company in Kansas City, Missouri in 1924.  What began as a small, family-run residential contractor would eventually grow into one of the top general building contractors in the country with approximate annual revenues of $2.7 billion and 20 office locations coast-to-coast.”

“Expansion to areas outside of Kansas City became part of the growth strategy of the company. In 1990, controlling interest of Minneapolis-based Witcher Construction was acquired. In 1992, Drake Construction Company in Portland, Oregon became part of the team. In the late 1990’s, LTB Contractors, Inc. of Houston was acquired and then Hughes/Smith, Inc., a Colorado Springs-based general contractor. January 2000 witnessed the acquisition of Atlanta’s R. J. Griffin & Company General Contractors.”

“These acquisitions rounded out the JE Dunn Construction Company team. In 2012, we were ranked the twelfth largest general building company in the United States.”

“Since 1984, consultants at Bury have been helping to build the communities in which we live and work. Bury first established a reputation as a civil engineering and surveying firm. With that foundation in place, we began to add complimentary services, allowing us to provide a depth of service that wasn’t being met within the market. These services ranged from landscape architecture, construction management, and transportation engineering to mechanical, electrical and structural engineering. The addition of these services has not only allowed Bury to better serve our clients; it has also allowed us to attract some of the industry’s top talent.” [source]

History
Bay & Associates was founded in August 2000 by Ed Bay, who has worked with some of the leading National Developers and Architects on a wide array of projects.

“In retrospect, August 2000 may not have been the best time to begin a new company. Austin was on the brink of the dot-com bust. The entire economy soon would slow with the technology sector. The firm started out with four professionals with a “can-do” spirit and a philosophy of doing business a different way. With the hard work and dedication of this small group, the company soon thrived and grew during a time when other firms were shrinking.

Ed brought more than 20 years of mechanical engineering and project management experience from Houston- and Austin-based consulting engineering firms. And the new firm delivered what clients needed—engineering solutions tailored to meet their budgets and expectations.

The result was a solid foundation of return business. And return business—which continues to hit 80% or better—fueled growth. Bay & Associates, Inc. now employs a full time staff of 18, including three licensed professional engineers and, as of this writing, 9 LEED AP professionals.” (Source)
