Caldwell Associates Architects, Inc. announces today that Ellis Architects of Tuscaloosa, AL has joined the company – regionally expanding their dynamic practice across the Southeast. This effort culminates a four-year transition for the companies that has enabled their shared expertise, culture, and assets to bring greater value to their clients.

Ellis Architects brings a 32-year legacy of professional service and successful projects across the state from Tuscaloosa to Mobile. Beginning as a family-owned small business, Ellis established a reputation built upon a strong vision, effective leadership, and a community mindset. With a portfolio of work including education, high-end residential, historic preservation, and civic projects, they have ushered in diverse project knowledge, resources, and enthusiasm to the growing Caldwell footprint.

With complementary firm cultures and service goals, the rebranded firm – Caldwell Architects – now with offices in Pensacola, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Demopolis – will continue its mission of improving communities through good design.

“Ellis Architects has an outstanding reputation, proven expertise, and a commitment to the communities they work within – all of which aligned with our company values and made us optimistic about partnership and growth. The real prize, however, was understanding that our firms truly shared the same DNA – a strong culture of collaboration, an employee-centered work environment, and a commitment to the pursuit of their craft, the staff of Ellis Architects was a perfect addition to our team. We are greater together, and excited about the opportunities that our expanded reach and experience can offer to our clients.”  – Miller Caldwell III
