Orange-based Leason Pomeroy Associates, the largest architectural firm in Orange County, is merging with Foothill Design Group in Sacramento. The marriage isn't surprising: Lynn S. Pomeroy, brother of Leason Pomeroy, was one of the founders of Foothill in 1976. Leason Pomeroy already does a lot of business in Sacramento. For Lynn Pomeroy, the choice was one of growing internally or merging with another firm to compete with the big, outside firms now doing business in Sacramento, he says.

LPA, one of Orange County's largest home-grown architects' firms, said Monday that it is merging its Los Angeles office with a big Seattle firm. That firm, NBBJ, said that under its agreement with LPA it would probably buy the Los Angeles office outright after three years. NBBJ is ranked as the nation's second-largest design firm by the magazine Building Design & Construction. One of the firm's specialties is the design of hospitals, one of the few construction markets that isn't moribund.
