Corgan Recognizes 75th Anniversary with "75 Days and 75 Ways" of Community Service

Global Architecture Firm Honors its Rich History, Innovative Founders and Tenured Clients by Giving Back to the Communities in which it Serves

DALLAS, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, in recognition of its 75th anniversary, Corgan, a leading architecture firm with offices around the globe, announces "75 Days and 75 Ways," an unprecedented, year-long community service project, keeping alive its founders', Jack M. Corgan and his successor, C. Jack Corgan's belief in the importance of giving back to the communities in which it serves.

Corgan, founded in Dallas in 1938, has grown from a two-man shop specializing in movie theaters and drive-ins to a thriving 330-person interior design and architecture powerhouse with offices in Dallas, Houston, New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Beijing and Dubai. Throughout its history, the firm has stayed true to its commitment to community service, giving more than 1,400 hours of service each year. For 2013, employees have dedicated themselves to take their founding father's commitment to new heights by participating in 75 ways of service in 75 days. 

"From Corgan's earliest days, our founder set a standard for giving back to the communities in which we live and work," said David Lind, Corgan chairman.  "Launching 75 different, successful charitable projects in one year will require a major commitment from every employee in every office, but what better way to celebrate our history than to make an even bigger effort to touch people's lives and improve the neighborhoods in which we work?"

Bob Morris, Corgan's president and CEO, said, "It's impossible to survive, much less thrive, in 75 years of business without great clients and the support from our associates in the industry. Taking the opportunity, year after year, to grow and innovate is what keeps people – and companies like ours – young, nimble and vital. We are thrilled to kick-off the next 25 years by giving back to the people in our communities who enrich us each and every day."

Corgan's legacy will likely be its award-winning work experienced day in and day out by millions globally, specifically, the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, including Terminal D, Sacramento's Central Terminal B, Miami's North Terminal Development, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and multiple projects at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Additionally, Corgan returned to its roots in 2012 with the design and soon-to-open modernization of Dallas' Love Field terminal. The original terminal building was completed by Corgan in 1957 and opened to the public in early 1958. Education clients include more than 40 school districts in the Southwest. In its hometown of Dallas, Corgan has been a part of legacy projects, including the global headquarters for Fossil, and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield campus, the Dallas City Performance Hall, One Arts Plaza and the new Parkland Hospital, a state-of-the art hospital, re-shaping health and patient care.

In 2011, Corgan was honored with the American Business Ethics award from the Society of Financial Service Professionals. In 2012, it was named the number one data center sector architecture firm by Building Design + Construction and the Fastest Growing Interior Design firm by Interior Design magazine. Corgan also garnered the Texas Association of School Administrators and Texas Association of School Boards' (TASA/TASB) top honor, the Caudill Award, for Lady Bird Johnson Middle School, the largest net zero educational facility in the country.

About Corgan
From its founding in 1938, Corgan has grown into one of the largest U.S.-based design firms focused on architecture. Named the 2011 Design Firm of the Year by ENR Texas & Louisiana and recognized three consecutive years as the Best Large Architecture Firm to Work by ZweigWhite, Corgan employs more than 330 professionals in its offices in Dallas, Houston, New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Beijing and Dubai. As its design opportunities have expanded from local to international, Corgan has developed special expertise in corporate, aviation, health care, education and mission critical facility design, as well as digital visualization services through Corgan MediaLab.
