Timothy Nichols, Principal and Engagement Manager, has been named Array Architects’ Practice Leader, Architecture. With more than 20 years of architectural design experience, the last five with Array, Tim’s technical expertise and project leadership make him an integral part of Array’s leadership team. Tim is based at the firm’s headquarters in Conshohocken, PA and works with staff across all offices.
In an era where time is of the essence and everything is urgent, design firms are searching for new mentoring and knowledge-sharing methods. As Array Architects continues to grow and evolve its process, the need for a project architecture leader became apparent. “My mission, in addition to introducing the perspective of the project architect and engagement manager into the process, is to supplement traditional mentoring and knowledge-sharing methods so our project architects can learn, grow and develop in their careers,” Nichols said.
Tim, a Drexel University graduate, encourages and promotes innovation across all Array offices while instilling technical proficiency in each of their project teams. He does this with a profound understanding of the depth of the firm’s human and technological resources. “Tim’s positive personality and ability to make lasting personal connections allow him to effectively collaborate with staff, practice leaders and clients to produce unexpected results,” noted the firm’s Chief Operating Officer, George Shmidheiser. “He understands that a firm’s strength comes from its people.”
As a professional services firm, Array provides advisory, planning, and design services, as well as technology solutions, to healthcare clients nationwide. Array believes that each staff member contributes a unique knowledge and perspective and every employee is empowered to make extraordinary contributions to the firm. By providing mentors for each discipline, Array’s knowledge gain can increase exponentially and staff can continue their lifelong education in the planning, design and advisory fields.
