ORLANDO—FCA, a leading New York and Philadelphia-based architecture and design firm, announced today that it has acquired legacy firm, Fred M. Humphrey & Associates. Together, the firms will share their regional presence, knowledge, and relationships to design spaces uniquely suited to the needs of those who use them.
“FCA is thrilled to have a firm with such a rich history in Central Florida join our team. With experience supporting medical institutions over the last several decades, Fred M. Humphrey & Associates will bring their expertise and intimate knowledge of the area to further establish FCA as a design leader in the Southeast,” says Aran McCarthy AIA, Principal, Healthcare, FCA.
Originally founded in 1954, FCA opened its Orlando office in September of 2019, focusing on healthcare after following clients in the medical field from the northeast region. The acquisition of Fred M. Humphrey & Associates will bring a depth of experience and a new level of service to the firm’s legacy clients. The consolidation of knowledge between these organizations will enable FCA to continue serving existing clients within the healthcare space while supporting the firm’s plans for growth both regionally and within the S&T, workplace, and education sectors.
Fred M. Humphrey & Associates was formed by the husband and wife team of Roseann Latta and Fred Humphrey in 1974. Roseann has served a large clientele of Florida-based health systems over the last several decades, with over 30 years of first round project approvals from AHCA (Agency for Health Care Administration). As a principal of FCA, Roseann and her dedicated team will continue to serve their clients while further building on the strength of FCA’s foundation as a national design firm.
FCA’s new Florida office will be located in Winter Park.
