Anshen+Allen snapped up by Canadians

  • Comment

Canadian giants Stantec is set to buy Anglo-American healthcare specialists Anshen + Allen for an undisclosed fee

The company signed a letter of intent formalising the deal, with Bob Gomes, Stantec president and chief executive officer, saying the move made business sense for both parties.

‘The combination of Anshen + Allen and Stantec will create a global architecture practice with particular expertise in the design of health care and education facilities,’ he explained.

‘One of our objectives is to expand and strengthen our building design practice across North America, and the addition of this internationally recognized and respected firm will help to fulfil that goal.’

Among the best-known famous schemes designed by Anshen + Allen, which has offices across the US and in London, are: the Octav Botnar Wing at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London; the Sir Henry Wellcome Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre at the University of Manchester; a new wing at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle; the £80 million London Clinic Cancer Centre; and Titus Salt School in Bradford (pictured).

Roger Swanson, Anshen + Allen chief executive officer, added: ‘We chose Stantec because it offers a strong platform for us to compete for projects that have significance and impact worldwide.’

The move marks the latest ‘ownership’ change for the UK arm of Anshen + Allen which was trading under the Anshen Dyer banner until 2006 (see AJ 22.06.06).
