Founded in 1996 by Armin Preiksaitis, the Edmonton-based professional land use planning and design consulting firm changed its name from Armin A. Preiksaitis & Associates Ltd. to ParioPlan in 2010. It will now operate as Associated Engineering.

The merger of the two firms will provide clients expanded services in community planning, urban design, landscape architecture, community engagement, and infrastructure, transportation, and environmental planning and design.

“For over 20 years, our companies have partnered on award-winning projects in communities throughout Alberta,” said Martin Jobke, president of Associated Engineering, in a company release. “We look forward to continuing to work with our clients to develop creative solutions for healthy and resilient communities.”

Armin Preiksaitis, president and founder of ParioPlan, added, “Throughout our long history of collaboration, I have found our firms share the same commitment to sustainable development, excellence, client service, and corporate and social responsibility. I look forward to serving our clients as one company, Associated Engineering.”

Collaborative projects between the companies have included the Growth and Economic Development Strategy in Grande Prairie, the City of Leduc-Leduc County Intermunicipal Development Plan, and the West Lethbridge Phase II Area Structure Plan.
