Michael Baker Corporation from Pittsburgh recently has acquired a Las Vegas architecture company, which focuses on health care, hospitals and other commercial buildings, called JMA Architects of Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

"Joining Baker will result in improved services for our clients and more opportunities for our people," Tom Schoeman, president of JMA Architects, told the news source.

The president of the Pittsburgh company, Brad Mallory, believes that this will further their company into designing more health care and education buildings, according to the media outlet.

JMA, which was founded in 1945, has a few impressive buildings on their resume including Las Vegas Market Center, Las Vegas Town Hall and Valley View Casino Hotel, the news provider reports.

Individuals who are thinking about entering the architecture design field may want to know how much they will earn. Professionals in this field earned around $70,000, which was the median annual salary for architects in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, employment in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent from 2008 to 2018.
