Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz helped the team at national architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann celebrate the opening of its newest location on Tuesday afternoon. The mayor, Bergmann professionals and other community leaders participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a community open house.
This is Bergmann’s third location in the Midwest region, joining offices in Lansing and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Bergmann’s Toledo office features local experts with years of experience in architecture, engineering and the construction industry. This location will support northwest Ohio and surrounding areas, delivering project of all sizes in collaboration with local professionals and community partners.
"Bergmann is excited about the establishment of our 11th location right here in the Glass City. We have built a strong foundation for our Toledo office with three senior professionals who have more than 80 years of collective experience, many within this community,” said Richard Chelotti, Midwest vice president for Bergmann. “Toledo’s strong focus on research, manufacturing, logistics, medical and educational institutions are consistent with Bergmann’s core markets. We are looking forward to developing a thriving full-service architectural and engineering practice in northwest Ohio into the future.”
Bergmann first moved in to its Toledo location at 3234 Executive Parkway in February 2018. In the past few months, the local team has expanded from a single engineering professional, Stephen Way, PE, to add two architects: Matt Pastula, AIA, NCARB and Joseph Bowen, Associate AIA, as well as a principal, Steven Johnson, LEED, AP, who leads a national Client Management Services practice for Bergmann.
The Bergmann Toledo team is deeply connected to the local community. They are engaged with community groups such as the Toledo Rotary, Boy Scouts of America, American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. Professionals in the Bergmann Toledo team have affiliations with groups such as the U.S. Green Building Council, Leadership Toledo, the American Institute of Architects and the Transportation Advocacy Group of Northwest Ohio (TAGNO).
For nearly four decades, Bergmann architects, engineers and planners have been delivering results to clients across the United States and Canada. This team of more than 400 professional and technical staff spans the Northeast, Midwest and Atlantic regions. Bergmann develops connections with partners and communities to create dynamic, creative solutions that will stand the test of time, while promoting environmental and functional sustainability. Projects in the Bergmann portfolio range from signature buildings and commercial developments to critical transportation infrastructure and community planning.
