CannonDesign, Astorino Merge

Global design firm CannonDesign is acquiring and merging with Astorino, a Pittsburgh-based architectural, construction and interior design company.

The firms cited their close alignment on values, vision and culture as the foundation of the new relationship — both CannonDesign and Astorino place a premium on design solutions that address unique challenges faced by clients.

"Together, our talented professionals will pursue outcome-based design solutions that optimize our clients' performance," said Gary Miller, co-chairman and CEO of CannonDesign. "This merger brings added value and opportunity to both organizations."

The merger also extends CannonDesign's presence in the markets Astorino currently serves and positions the firm to expand capabilities into industry innovations for project delivery offering increased choices for clients. A Design-Led Design-Build division to be led from the Pittsburgh office will advance innovative methods for project delivery. Louis P. Astorino Jr., CEO of Astorino, who spearheaded Astorino's Design Led-Design Build practice group over the last decade, will lead the growth initiative nationwide.

"CannonDesign is a recognized global leader, and we've partnered on projects in the past," Astorino said. "We are compatible in culture, and complementary in talent, experience and capabilities. This is a superb opportunity for our team to work with CannonDesign's professionals to expand and innovate." 

While strengthening the firm's existing focus on healthcare, education and corporate commercial markets, CannonDesign will gain access to Astorino's breadth and depth of talent and experience in both standard architectural services. The firm also will gain access to a valued network of relationships in Pittsburgh and Abu Dhabi, vibrant regions with high growth potential.
