Today ISPA offers its congratulations to member organization Arup who recently announced that it will integrate with Artec Consultants Inc.  Read the original announcement on the Arup website, or re-produced below. 

Thirteen acoustics, audio visual and theatre consultants join Arup. Arup and Artec are pleased to announce the integration of their practices, effective immediately.

This combines two of the world’s premier practices specialising in the planning, design, and engineering of venues for performing arts, contemporary entertainment, education, conference, convention, sports and worship venues.

"Joining forces with Arup, enhances our collective ability to provide highly specialist skills anywhere in the world, through the resources of a large, global organization, serving projects of any scale, with the best international design thinking, delivered to clients locally from start to finish.”
—Tateo Nakajima, Principal, former Partner at Artec

Arup has integrated former Artec staff into the New York team led by ISPA member Raj Patel. With this move, Tateo Nakajima, Ed Arenius, Todd Brooks, Christopher Darland and Tom Clark from Artec join our leadership team and will work closely with our regional leaders.

This enhanced team of acoustics, audio visual and theatre consultants strengthens our ability to provide clients and their projects whole life relationships. From cultural masterplanning, project inception and concept development, through design, construction and post opening. Our holistic service supports the owners, operators and users in delivering performances to their audiences.
