Share post:

Boise’s Cole Architects is expanding with its second addition in just a year.

The firm acquired HDA Architects of Gilbert, Arizona. Arizona Secretary of State records show the deal went through in March of this year, with Cole as the acquiring party.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

HDA started in 1989 with a specialization in designing public facilities. The company worked on a variety of projects throughout Arizona, including fire stations, city hall buildings, schools and churches.

Last year, Cole purchased DKA Architecture and Design of Bend, Oregon. At the time, the company said it employed 18. Now, with the addition of HDA, it says the staff has expanded to more than 40.

“This merging of abilities and interests is an exciting next step for our team throughout the region,” Cole Architects Managing Partner Matt Huffield said. “Our firm’s goal is that everyone in our team finds
satisfaction in their work and continued opportunity to stretch their abilities.”

Stan Cole founded the eponymous firm in Boise in 1995. Cole sold the business in 2018 to Huffield. Cole remains with the firm.

Locally, Cole is known locally for its work on projects like the new PetIQ headquarters and the Ronald McDonald House.
