LEO A DALY is happy to announce the hire of the Dallas staff of Array Architects. The Array team brings a sizable portfolio of past and current healthcare projects that will further the growth and development of our Dallas studio and global health practice.
“Integrating an established healthcare design team into our Dallas studio adds significant value to our design capabilities in Texas, the surrounding states and worldwide. This is a team with an extensive work history together, who share LEO A DALY’s commitment to innovative, thoughtful and sustainable design,” said Steve Lichtenberger, AIA, president of LEO A DALY.
This new integration brings healthcare-focused architects, interior designers and planners to LEO A DALY’s existing Dallas team, including Marsha Whitt, CHID, EDAC, Lean Six Sigma Healthcare; Katelyn Nunn, RA; Christina Taylor, planning and design; Gregg Hicks, planning and design; and Adrian Negron, lean design practitioner.
“This is an exciting move for our studio,” said Ken Martin, AIA, managing principal in Dallas. “The world knows LEO A DALY’s Dallas team as one of the preeminent hospitality design studios in the industry. Integrating healthcare into that mix will elevate the creativity of both groups, infusing wellness expertise into our hospitality practice and a dose of hospitality style into our healthcare work.”
The Array team joins LEO A DALY with a portfolio of local projects that includes work for Parkland Health & Hospital System, UT Southwestern Medical Center and Baylor Scott & White Health.
“Strong client relationships have helped LEO A DALY become a globally recognized leader in the design of the built environment. It’s very important to us, throughout this transition, that Array’s Dallas clients experience no interruption. The only thing they should notice is how great their projects turn out,” said Rebecca Davis, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP, our healthcare market sector leader in Dallas.
The Dallas healthcare team will be supported by talent from across the firm’s global health practice. LEO A DALY, which has 11 architecture offices across the U.S. and the Middle East, is recognized as an international leader in medical planning and design. The firm is ranked 19th in healthcare by Building Design + Construction healthcare and 11th by Interior Design.
“LEO A DALY’s global health practice is dedicated to helping our clients elevate care delivery through design. That means leveraging a deep understanding of medical processes and bringing clarity to the whole system of systems that interact in a healthcare setting. The Array team brings a unique differentiator in their Lean Six Sigma methodology, which will be an asset to our clients not just in Dallas, but worldwide,” said Josh Theodore, ACHE, EDAC, LEO A DALY’s global health practice leader.
