Sarasota, Fla. – GMC recently expanded its geographic footprint and depth of resources with the acquisition of SaltoCo, LLC, an architectural and planning firm in Sarasota, Fla.
SaltCo has been providing design services to clients in the central Florida region for more than a decade. While their portfolio encompasses a variety of project types, including hospitality, transportation facilities, retail and other general commercial build-outs, their primary focus has been healthcare design.
“This acquisition complements the work GMC currently has underway in Florida and further demonstrates our commitment to provide local service, backed by a regional network of professionals,” Freddie Lynn, GMC Senior Vice President of Architecture, said. “We are confident that SaltCo’s reputation as a quality design firm in central Florida, coupled with GMC’s multi-disciplined approach and reach spanning the Southeast will create a solid partnership to better serve our clients and provide new opportunities for our staff.”
The two firms have collaborated on projects over the years, including several now underway. Among them are pharmacy relocation and replacement projects for Manatee Memorial and Lakewood Ranch hospitals and a CT replacement, pharmacy relocation and replacement and nuclear medicine upgrades at DeSoto Memorial Hospital.
The former SaltCo employees will continue working from their current location at 2650 Bahia Vista St., Suite 302, operating as GMC.
