Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends,

We are excited to announce that ATI Architects and Engineers has merged with the Planning Architecture Engineering Alliance, Inc. (PAEA).  Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, PAEA will now be comprised of four main firms, each independently operated.

  • AC Martin – Los Angeles-based Architecture, Planning, Interiors and Research firm with a vast design portfolio spanning over 100 years in Corporate, Commercial, Institutional, and Higher Education sectors.
  • ATI Architects + Engineers – California-based (San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and Orange County) Architecture and Engineering leaders in K-12 Education, Industrial, and Government sectors.
  • Togawa Smith Martin – Los Angeles-based design firm, recognized as leaders in Multi-Family Residential and Mixed-Use Retail/Residential architecture.
  • PFVS – Atlanta-based, full service Architecture, Planning, and Interiors firm specializing in Hospitality Design across the US.

“We are excited to start 2018 with ATI as the new addition to our family of firms,” said Donna Clandening, PAEA’s Chief Strategy Officer.  “Their expertise and dedication to client satisfaction and innovation first impressed us and we feel the family of firms are a perfect match to continue our legacy of transforming cities and neighborhoods throughout California and the U.S.”

The merger of ATI with the PAEA’s family of firms is an exciting step forward for us and our clients.  Now our expanded and extended staff totals over 270 employees with broader regional coverage and greater practice leadership.  This access to a larger and immensely talented team will only further our passion of providing unmatched quality of work, service, integrity, and innovation to the marketplaces we serve.

The transition to the new ATI will be seamless and transparent. Our Managing and Operating Principals: Mark Bello, Bruce Gillings, Michael Goldsworthy, Dan Schweickert, Anna Win, Debbie Lesnefska, our Senior/Associate Team as well as our Technical Principals and I will remain in our current positions as leaders and managers of ATI.

We firmly believe that this new era of ATI will bring more capabilities and opportunities to our clients, as well as growth, and career advancement for our team.  We are excited to be entering this next generation of ATI and especially excited to have you along for the journey.





Paul DiDonato, President
