Baton Rouge-based Grace Hebert Curtis Architects acquires Florida firm


Grace Hebert Curtis Architects has acquired BSSW Architects, a southwest Florida-based firm.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

BSSW Architects was founded in 1980 and has offices in Fort Myers and Naples. The company has served as the lead architect on projects such as government buildings, public service and senior living facilities, schools, public libraries, religious buildings, community and cultural centers, hotels, resorts and private communities.

Last year, Bernhard Capital Partners bought a stake in Grace Hebert Curtis, with plans to use the Baton Rouge-based firm to launch an architecture, engineering and construction investment platform. Jerry Hebert, CEO of Grace Hebert Curtis, said the BSSW deal fits in with that philosophy.

“As southwestern Florida continues to experience consistent population growth and increased public infrastructure demand, we believe BSSW’s client-first focus and expertise, coupled with its outstanding reputation, provides immediate near- and long-term value for GHC,” Jeff Koonce, partner at Bernhard Capital, said in a statement.

Grace Hebert Curtis has offices in New Orleans, Lafayette and Lake Charles, along with operations in Dallas, Fort Worth, Texas and Pensacola, Florida.
