Philadelphia, PA — Array Architects was honored with three awards for recently completed projects in the second half of 2019, calling attention to the firm’s expertise in healthcare design and lab planning. The awards were issued by Healthcare Design (HCD) magazine, International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).
“We strive to design exceptional environments that are not only beautiful, but support the overall clinical operations of our clients,” said Laura Morris, interior design director at Array Architects. “These awards signify that our creativity – in collaboration with our clients vision and their patients’ input – can foster remarkable teamwork to create a successful project.”
This month, HCD selected Array’s design for Children’s National Medical Center’s pediatric behavioral health facility as the Silver Winner in the renovation/remodel category of their annual competition. Jurors cited the calming interior, contemporary spaces that support therapies and consolidated patient/family amenity spaces that retain safe environments as key reasons for the recognition.
IIDA recognized Tower Health’s Plastic Surgery and Day Spa as the best healthcare project under 50,000 SF in the Philadelphia area. Honoring Array at their 15th Annual Design Awards, the organization showcased the decidedly modern, comfortable and upscale care facility that offers a rejuvenating patient experience, private patient discharge lounge and optimal operational flow.
At their Excellence in Construction awards gala this month, ABC honored Array Architects for their role in the expedited design and delivery of Johnson and Wales’ microbiology lab in Charlotte, North Carolina. ABC recognized Array for their close coordination with contractors and engineers across two states to fulfill the project goal within a construction duration of only 20 weeks.
The awards arrive on the heels of major milestones for Array. The firm recently concluded Inspira Health’s Mullica Hill Hospital, a 591,180 SF IPD project, commemorating the achievement at a ribbon cutting in early November. Array has also unveiled the design for Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters’ pediatric behavioral health bed tower, a 481,894 SF facility that is positioned to improve access to behavioral healthcare in Norfolk, VA, and surrounding communities. These comprehensive, state-of-the-art facilities marry the design excellence, project planning and coordination expertise, and vision for which Array was recognized in 2019.
A leader in healthcare facility design, consulting and technology, Array offers knowledge-based, data-informed services, including planning, architecture, interior design, transformation and asset advisory services. Using Lean as a foundation for a unique process-led approach, Array’s deliverables employ data and technology to identify patient, market and industry trends vital to the success of today’s healthcare organizations.
