SmithGroupJJR has acquired TRO (Boston), a multidisciplinary healthcare design firm. TRO will become the Boston office of SmithGroupJJR.

Mark Jussaume, PE, LEED AP, who has been with TRO since 1990 and most recently served as the firm’s CEO, steps into the role of office director for this location.

The Boston office will continue doing business as TRO into the second quarter of 2018, at which time it will be fully integrated into the SmithGroupJJR brand.

SmithGroupJJR’s growth plans include establishing additional offices and expanding services and markets into existing offices where there is strategic alignment with client needs. The acquisition of TRO follows other recent moves, including the opening of an office in San Diego, the addition of engineering services in all California offices, and expanded service offerings at the Madison, Wis., office to include architectural design. The firm has also recently created Workplace studios in its Los Angeles, Dallas, and Chicago offices and Science & Technology studios in Chicago and Dallas.

The move increases the company’s resources to 1,300 employees and 12 offices across the U.S. and China.
