HDR Welcomes Kevin Spady to the Los Angeles Architecture Studio

HDR welcomes Kevin Spady as a vice president and healthcare principal in the Los Angeles architecture studio. As a healthcare principal, Kevin is responsible for expanding HDR’s healthcare practice in Southern California, which includes developing new business, market development and strategic outreach, maintaining client relationships, and managing project teams. He says he is excited to join HDR and have the opportunity to utilize his knowledge and skills in such an exceptional organization.

Kevin lists his top skills as strategic thinking, marketing development, and risk management and contracting, and he is passionate about developing honest and caring relationships with the people with whom he works. “The success or failure of any project or engagement depends completely upon the quality of the people involved,” he says. “I work hard to make sure that our teams are performing at their highest levels, developing their best skills, and applying themselves for successful outcomes.”

Kevin’s eclectic portfolio includes healthcare, science and technology, and higher education projects, as well as laboratory planning and programming. While he enjoys participating in organizations such as the AIA and DBIA, Kevin is most proud of the leadership roles he has had throughout his 39-year career, especially when he has been able to mentor staff and help with staff development.

“Kevin brings a broad dimension of health thinking to our practice,” says Amy Williams, managing principal of HDR’s architecture studio in Los Angeles. “His commitments to high-performance team-building, client satisfaction, and quality design will help us navigate the ever-changing landscape of healthcare design.”
