Does anyone recall the old Houston architecture firm called 3D/International? Any former employees by any chance?

Parsons Corp., a Pasadena-based engineering and construction company, said it had bought 3D/International, a Houston-based company that specializes in designing and constructing schools and public buildings.

“We had been looking for an entity that could fill out our skills and resources” in the educational world, said Charles Harrington, president of Parsons Commercial Technology Group, a unit with about 2,500 workers.

The transaction was announced late Thursday. The price was not disclosed. Both companies are privately owned.

Off-topic, but after filling out their skills in educational architecture and construction, that same man you quote, Charles Harrington, "led Parsons into the biotechnology, semiconductor, and wireless communications markets," and then of course ... moved their head office from SoCal to Chantilly, Virginia, to compete as a defense contractor??




Glad that Diversified Design Disciplines had a few good years anyway.  It was the product of a 1972 local merger with a large Austin firm:
