Salus was founded in 2014 by R David Frum, FAIA, FACHA; together with Dale Anderson, AIA, EDAC; and Douglas McNutt, AIA. Salus will operate its health care practice as DLR Group | Salus and continue to serve the needs of health care clients in the Pacific Northwest. It also will actively collaborate with DLR Group’s health care studio to expand the array of specialty design services for the firm’s health care clients. The Salus team will relocate to DLR Group’s office this summer.
“DLR Group is committed to being a global design leader. The team at Salus is curious, collaborative, and focused on design and delivery of user-centered environments, which aligns with our brand promise to elevate the human experience through design,” Davenport said.
Salus provides a foundation for DLR Group to build a health care practice in the Pacific Northwest. By joining DLR Group, Salus project teams have access to in-house design services including engineering, interiors, laboratory planning, lighting, and acoustics to expand the services available to existing clients.
“Joining with DLR Group provides our team a depth of design expertise and services that will allow us to scale up the projects we can deliver and our reach in the Pacific Northwest,” Frum said.
