A few months after announcing a “formal working alliance,” a pair of Texas and Fresno architecture firms have announced a merger.

Fresno-based S.I.M. Architects and PBK Architects will now be known as SIM-PBK.

“The combination brings together two highly complementary companies with notable brands and strong growth prospects that combines small business service with big business expertise,” according to a news release.

Joining forces in September 2014 for the purpose of delivering a Long Range Facilities Master Plan for the Twin Rivers Unified School District near Sacramento, S.I.M. Architects and PBK Architects won an award for the project.

“The immediate success of the SIM-PBK collaboration can be accredited to firm similarities of a symbiotic approach to project delivery that prioritizes client attention, responsiveness, professional integrity, and relentless customer service,” according to the news release.

S.I.M Architects, formed in 1987, is an award-winning architectural firm specializing in educational, commercial and municipal facilities, as well as private corporations throughout California.

PBK is an award-winning architecture and engineering firm specializing in Next Generation educational design and sports facilities throughout the United States.

To date, SIM-PBK has successfully completed numerous commissions from Los Angeles to Sacramento, and throughout the Central Valley.

The SIM-PBK Fresno-based office is located at 7591 N. Ingram #101, Fresno, CA 93711; with future plans for office expansion in the summer that will keep SIM-PBK located in the Palm Bluff business park in north Fresno.
