BRC Acoustics & Audiovisual Design (BRC) is Now Coffman Engineers
Seattle Acoustical Firm Introduces New Service to Northwest Clients and Expands Companywide Capabilities
SEATTLE, September 12, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Multidiscipline consulting engineering firm Coffman Engineers, Inc. (Coffman) announced today that it has finalized an asset purchase agreement with acoustical consulting firm BRC Acoustics & Audiovisual Design, Inc. (BRC). Coffman welcomes BRC's president and five staff members to the company. Representatives from both firms finalized the agreement on Sept. 10.
The decision to join Coffman is part of BRC's ownership transition plan for future retirement while supporting its staff and clients. President Daniel Bruck, PhD, LEED AP BD+C, joins Coffman as a principal advisor. BRC introduces new acoustical services to Coffman's Northwest clients and expands companywide acoustic capabilities.
"I've been fortunate to have been part of BRC's 60-year legacy, and it's time for the next chapter. Coffman has similar business values, and I am confident it will be a good fit for my staff and our clients," said Bruck. "We have some of the same clients, project overlap, and are two long-established firms. We are also joining a growing acoustics team at Coffman and will support these services across the company."
Coffman and BRC's experience and markets align, particularly in hospitality, healthcare, housing, and education, providing a smooth transition of projects, clients, and employees. BRC's capabilities extend Coffman's acoustical capabilities in performing arts centers, historic renovations, and specialized room acoustics.
"BRC has a rich 63-year history in Seattle, and their influence is heard on projects across the Northwest and internationally. We are fortunate to welcome this experienced team," said Arvind Nerurkar, PE, SE, Senior VP, and Seattle Managing Principal at Coffman. "We look forward to connecting with new clients and offering a new service to existing clients."
As Coffman employees, BRC will continue to support its clients and honor project commitments. Their first day in Coffman's Seattle office was on Sept. 11. The addition of BRC expands Coffman's acoustical group to 13 employees companywide.
