Seattle Healthcare Design Firm Salus Architecture Joins Our Firm

(SEATTLE, May 26, 2021) – DLR Group CEO Griff Davenport, FAIA, today announced Seattle-based healthcare design firm Salus Architecture is joining DLR Group. Salus is exclusively dedicated to healthcare design, specializing in the design of complex acute and ambulatory care facilities.

Salus was founded in 2014 by R David Frum, FAIA, FACHA; together with Dale Anderson, AIA, EDAC; and Douglas McNutt, AIA. Salus will operate its healthcare practice as DLR Group | Salus and continue to serve the needs of healthcare clients in the Pacific Northwest. It also will actively collaborate with our Healthcare studio to expand the array of specialty design services for our firm’s Healthcare clients. The Salus team will relocate to our office at 51 University Street this summer.

Salus provides a proven foundation for our firm to build a Healthcare practice in the Pacific Northwest. By joining us, Salus project teams have access to in-house design services including engineering, interiors, laboratory planning, lighting, and acoustics to expand the services available to existing clients.

“Joining with DLR Group provides our team a depth of design expertise and services that will allow us to scale up the projects we can deliver and our reach in the Pacific Northwest,” said Salus President R David Frum.

We are a 100 percent employee-owned firm, and every Salus Architecture design professional will have the opportunity to purchase stock and invest in the future of our firm.

“The opportunities available to our design professionals for firm ownership, and personal and professional growth within a global, integrated firm like DLR Group are virtually limitless,” said Frum. “I am very excited to provide our design professionals the value of employee-ownership and access to design and career opportunities with clients around the world.”
