Cleveland-based firm acquires local architectural business

InterDesign Inc., one of the city’s 10 largest architectural firms, has been acquired by Cleveland-based K2M Design Inc., the companies announced Monday.

Financial terms of the deal, which took effect this month, were not announced.

InterDesign Group, 141 E. Ohio St., was founded in 1975 with four architects and has since grown to 16. The firm provides a wide range of design services with concentrations in education, health care and senior living, governmental, religious, corporate and commercial.

The firm ranked eighth in the Indianapolis area among design firms with $4.3 million in local architectural billings in 2015, according to IBJ’s most recent data.

Its projects include Northview Christian Church in Carmel, Fundex Games headquarters in Plainfield, Hope Academy at Fairbanks, Franklin High School and Center Grove High School, Hamilton Trace nursing facility in Fishers and a number of college-campus projects.

The company is now using the tagline InterDesign, a K2M-powered company.

K2M Design, founded in 2001, has more than 60 architects at nine U.S. offices. It offers design, engineering, financial and consulting services in almost every industry segment.

“This is a very exciting time for InterDesign,” InterDesign President Phil Howard said in written comments. “We couldn’t be more thrilled. This marriage allowed us the opportunity to ensure a strong, positive legacy for InterDesign. This partnership is monumental because it solidifies InterDesign’s ability to offer top-tier [architecture, engineering and construction] services across a much larger geography with expanded specializations.”

A spokesperson for the merged company could not be immediately reached for further questions.
