The Beck Group and Mosa Architects Announce Partnership
- Feb 7, 2022
The Beck Group is strengthening its longstanding commitment to promoting industry diversity, equity and inclusion by forming a Protégé Partnership with MOSA Architects, a Snellville-based woman- and minority-owned firm.
Since joining forces, Beck and Mosa signed a design contract with Georgia State University for architectural and engineering services. The contract allows us to collaborate on the school’s small renovation projects this year.
Proactively partnering with a woman- and minority-owned enterprise like MOSA Architects is crucial to our mission of advancing causes that build and lift communities.
“There has been a lot of focus in our industry around diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Beck Group Associate Principal, Ken Higa, AIA.
“Much of our discussion focused on identifying strategies that positively impact the future of architecture. This led to the idea that we could make a meaningful contribution to MOSA and possibly have a greater impact on the profession as a whole,” he added.
The partnership was formalized in late 2021. It is structured to enhance MOSA’s growth potential and foster an enduring business relationship between our firms, serve as a model to other firms, and contribute to the overall success in the growth and economic development of the metro Atlanta community.
MOSA Architects President Monica Fenderson agreed that the partnership benefits both companies and the metro Atlanta community. “Our future work together will bring MOSA’s values of integrity, detail, honesty, and quality to every collaborative effort.”
Under the partnership, Beck offers advice and guidance to MOSA on internal business management, marketing, business development, best practices, and strategic planning. Both firms will also seek meaningful opportunities to collaborate on projects and pursuits.
