RISA Acquires ADAPT Corporation

Hero adapt

RISA is excited to announce the acquisition of ADAPT Corporation. Over the past 30 years, both RISA and ADAPT have focused on developing best in class solutions that directly respond to the needs of our customers and the market, while also maintaining the highest level of customer support. As a result of our shared goals, we believe that joining the brands and integrating all programs under the roof of RISA will create a comprehensive workflow for the building market regardless of material while also providing customers increased flexibility and efficiency.

“We are thrilled to have the experienced team from ADAPT on board,” says Amber Freund, CEO of RISA. “Our customers will significantly benefit from this combined power, as we are now able to offer a comprehensive concrete and steel design solution including post-tensioning.”

While ADAPT is primarily known for the analysis and design of post-tensioned slabs, their product offerings include a wide range of tools tuned for the complete design of concrete building structures. To accomplish this, ADAPT-Builder offers an easy to use, fully integrated 3D modeling approach for all reinforced concrete and post-tensioned building projects including the design of multi-story buildings, individual concrete slabs, mat foundations and concrete slabs on expansive soils.
