Loucks Acquires Sanders Wacker Bergly

Loucks acquires Sanders Wacker Bergly

Loucks has acquired Saint Paul‐based Sanders Wacker Bergly (SWB), Minnesota’s first and oldest landscape architecture and planning firm. The acquisition will enhance Loucks’ landscape architecture and planning disciplines, allowing the firm to expand community planning, urban design, and streetscape planning services, while continuing to grow core multidisciplinary offerings that include civil engineering and land surveying.


“The Loucks team has been an important partner for us on several projects, and SWB has been doing great work in Saint Paul for decades,” said Louis Jambois, president of the Saint Paul Port Authority.  “We often work on complex projects that require a deep team with a diverse set of skills. Joining these two companies is great news for this market.”


Sanders Wacker Bergly’s history in Minnesota dates back to 1909.  The firm has worked on a number of significant projects in Minnesota, from the memorials at the State Capitol to Saint Paul’s Irvine Park Historic District.  SWB has also planned and designed notable Minnesota landmarks such as Theodore Wirth Park, Lake of the Isles, and Minnehaha Park; downtown streetscapes in Saint Paul, Red Wing, and Edina; and urban design work for the cities of Stillwater, Red Wing, and New Brighton.
