SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — The firm of Griffith Dardanelli Architects, P.C. has joined forces with BCA Architects & Engineers.

Griffith Dardanelli Architects will be wholly integrated into BCA, expanding BCA’s presence in the capital region and Adirondacks. Griffith Dardanelli’s tradition of service will continue for its current clients, and the union will enhance service to BCA’s current clients in the capital region and Adirondacks. The integrated firms will be located at 516 Broadway Avenue in Saratoga Springs, New York, a new space for our growing office in the region.

“This will strategically position us to continue our service to our clients well into the future, and significantly increase the expertise and resources we can offer our clients,” said Sandra Dardanelli, AIA, president, Griffith Dardanelli Architects, P.C.

Kevin E. Lewis, AIA, NCARB, CEO, BCA Architects & Engineers, said the merger reflects BCA’s commitment to its clients in the capital region to enhance our services with an expanded, local presence.

“And while the combination is new, the firms share a focus on client service and extensive experience in K-12 school projects,” he said. “Our experiences and outlooks are so similar that this union seems almost inevitable.”
