History[edit]

The acquisition allowed gkkworks to diversify in the commercial and retail markets.[7][8] In 2007, gkkworks acquired Sacramento, California-based CCS Group, a firm specializing in master planning for community colleges.[9] In 2010, to expand work in the federal and mission critical facilities markets, gkkworks acquired Los Angeles-based design-build firm Syska Hennessy Group Construction.[10][11] To expand the firm’s geographic reach, gkkworks acquired Denver, Colorado-based architecture firm klipp, in 2012.[12]
