Chelsea Hamada

Healthcare Practice Leader

Chelsea has an innate ability to balance client goals with high-level design to deliver successful projects. She skillfully navigates the world of healthcare design and architecture which often is constrained by equipment technologies and antiquated building systems among many other things. Whether it be through user interviews or on-site construction meetings, her hands-on approach to project management keeps her design team and consultants engaged and challenged. She motivates teams to collectively search for the best approach to solve problems as they present on projects.

Chelsea finds fulfillment in introducing and helping newer designers and architects with the complexities of healthcare design, and she takes great satisfaction in creating an open dialogue for learning. Because of this approach, Chelsea always makes herself available whether it be to help a team member with a construction detail or discuss a better approach to a challenge. Through this type of hands-on mentorship and leadership style, her team is able to thrive and grow.

Architecture is not just a job, but a hobby which makes coming to work every day a pleasure and returning home to my family a joy!
