In blending technical skills and people skills, Doug brings a wealth of perspective to the design, planning, and leadership of large-scale, highly complex healthcare projects. Well known for his knowledge of healthcare regulatory requirements, he’s also an expert at customizing compliance for owners.
As a technical director and principal on several of the largest healthcare projects ever built in the US, Doug built a reputation for his specific knowledge of the unique challenges presented by high rise healthcare design. He’s an elected member of the Chicago Committee on High Rise Buildings—and the only healthcare representative.
Over the past 20 years—at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Feinberg Galter Pavilion and Prentice Women’s Hospital—Doug was the coordinating project architect for two projects comprising over $1 Billion in work. There, he developed his unique insight into vertical healthcare design for structures in urban environments.
For Doug, nothing beats good mentorship, whether he’s providing the service through peer reviews of healthcare projects or shoring up his table tennis game. Doug believes in learning from the best, and when he’s exploring his out-of-work passions (basketball, softball, or table tennis), he seeks coaching from pro players and former US Olympic coaches.
