Oregon firm acquires ArchitTrek in BR

An Oregon software firm has acquired the Baton Rouge firm of ArchitTrek, which provides a web-based tool that enables architects, engineers, clients and contractors to collaborate before and during the completion of construction projects.

Axium, headquartered in Portland, acquired the Baton Rouge company to mesh ArchitTrek with its Ajera management and accounting software.

G.D. “Jerry” Hebert II, listed as president of both ArchitTrek and the Baton Rouge firm of Grace & Hebert Architects, said in a written statement: “We are convinced that Axium is the absolute right company to grow the (ArchitTrek) business.”

Lisa Hannah, Axium’s vice president for marketing, said all three of ArchitTrek’s employees will remain at the Baton Rouge firm. Hannah added: “We plan on working closely with Grace & Hebert Architects to leverage their experience and expertise as we grow the product and team.”

Both ArchitTrek and Grace & Hebert Architects have offices in Baton Rouge at 501 Government St. The architectural firm also has an office in New Orleans.
