Latest Addition to Godspeed’s Multi-Disciplinary Engineering, Architecture, and Consulting Platform Furthers Strategic Growth Execution in Attractive Florida Market

Fort Lauderdale, FL — September 5, 2023 — Godspeed Capital Management LP (“Godspeed Capital”), a lower middle-market Defense & Government services, solutions, and technology focused private equity firm, today announced the successful acquisition of Synalovski Romanik Saye Architects (“SRS” or the “firm”), a Florida-based, full-service design firm specializing in architectural and interior design, planning, development, construction, and contract management services. Under the terms of the acquisition, SRS will join Zyscovich, Inc. (“Zyscovich”), the industry leading, Florida-based architecture and design brand operating within Stratus, Godspeed Capital’s multidisciplinary engineering, architecture, and consulting platform.

Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, SRS brings over three decades of architectural and interior design, planning, development, construction, and contract management expertise to the Stratus platform. The firm maintains a reputation as one of Florida’s leading full-service design firms with a growing bilingual workforce that has enabled it to succeed in some of the state’s leading projects. Since its founding in 1988, SRS has served 44 municipalities on over 380 projects throughout the State of Florida and developed projects in Connecticut, Texas, Illinois, and Puerto Rico.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Stratus platform where we will bring our own deep expertise to bear across the broader group,” said Manny Synalovski, Founder and Managing Principal of SRS. “Stratus has developed a leading reputation within the broader industry and has access to an unparalleled network of expertise and talent from which to leverage. We look forward to joining forces and continuing to provide our clients with a heightened level of quality care that they’ve become accustomed to, now with additional resources, capabilities, and services.”  

Jose Murguido, President of Zyscovich, Inc., commented, “SRS has created strong momentum for its business and adds unique areas of focus and expertise to Zyscovich, while complementing our growing business in the Southeastern US. We look forward to working closely with Manny and his talented team to combine our development expertise and further enhance our ability to support clients in achieving their strategic objectives.”

“The addition of SRS to the Stratus platform notably strengthens our presence within the significant and growing Florida market, where we serve both public sector and commercial clients across the state. We look forward to leveraging the strength of the incredible SRS team as we continue to support the growth of Zyscovich and our other leading Stratus brands,” added Nat Fogg, Partner at Godspeed Capital.   Stratus was formed through the alliance of Zyscovich, Inc., Prime Engineering, Austin Brockenbrough & Associates, Ascent Engineering Group, C.T. Hsu + Associates, and Morris & Associates. The brands primarily operate independently, leveraging their strong reputation, market presence, and the resources of the Stratus platform to deliver innovative services and solutions to a growing roster of clients in the U.S. and around the world. SRS is the latest acquisition for Stratus following its acquisition of Morris & Associates, Engineers, LLC, announced earlier this year.
