For more than five decades, Callison and RTKL have created some of the world’s most memorable and successful commercial environments—from urban, mixed-use developments to the world’s top-performing retail centers, hotels, multi-family residential and iconic towers on the skyline. In 2015, our two practices came together under the ARCADIS umbrella, expanding our sphere of influence and the depth and breadth of our resources. Partnering with retailers, developers and operators, our team is comprised of more than 2,000 innovative professionals throughout the world who are committed to advancing our client’s businesses and enhancing quality of life.
ARCADIS acquired Callison in 2014. The acquisition brings together the strengths of two global powerhouses in commercial architecture, design and planning— Callison and RTKL, who was acquired by ARCADIS in 2007.
From the added breadth and depth of our combined resources and access to deeper pools of talent to the creative spark that comes from collaboration and the exchange of bold ideas, the partnership brings clients tangible, far-reaching benefits. As a team, we now have the scale, footprint, technical expertise and collective focus needed to address some of the biggest issues impacting our clients and markets today.
We believe that great design is an essential part of what our clients seek and is critical to shaping high-performing built assets and thriving, sustainable places. ARCADIS’ ambition is to build the most powerful, innovative design practice on the planet. The combined talents of Callison and RTKL represent a major step to achieve this goal.
