Reynolds Ash + Associates Merges with RMBA Architects

Reynolds Ash + Associates is excited to share the news of our merger with RMBA Architects. The company will retain the RA+A name and will operate the expanded firm out of their new office at 564 E 2nd Avenue in Durango, and their office in Pagosa Springs at 262 Pagosa Street. The two firms do share a history. Tracy Reynolds was a junior partner with RMBA (then under senior principal R. Michael Bell), from 1997, until 2002 when he started his own firm.

The merger will use the strengths of both companies to deliver greater value and level of service to our clients. The firm is the largest locally-owned Architecture and Engineering firm in the Four Corners region, and has the manpower and expertise to provide services for projects of most any type and scope.

RA+A serves clients in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona, with project types including custom residential, multi-family, commercial, and municipal projects for cities, counties, and state organizations. RA+A’s services include planning and development, entitlement services, landscape design, structural engineering, and architecture.

The merger of RA+A and RMBA is rooted in the common beliefs of building and sustaining long-term client relationships, delivering exemplary work and providing an environment where employees can excel in their careers. With the integration of these two companies RA+A is excited for the many opportunities ahead to expand services to more clients, develop our team, and grow our business.
