HDR Brings New Health Design Expertise to Manhattan Office

Daniel Cusick

Daniel Cusick, AIA, has joined HDR's Manhattan office as a health principal where he will work with HDR’s team of designers and planners to serve healthcare clients throughout the Northeast. Cusick’s 30-year career in architecture has focused primarily on healthcare institutions. His last 10 years have been with Stantec Architecture in New York.

Cusick’s passion lies in seeing the final outcome of his and his team’s design efforts. “Seeing all the design and project development efforts exceed the original objective, task or image is a true reward. There is so much energy and excitement in the discovery,” he said. “HDR has a global presence, and I’m excited to see how discoveries made by our global teams can bring the best of wellness solutions to our local clients.”

Cusick earned his Bachelor of Architecture degree at the New York Institute of Technology, followed by a Certificate of Studies for Editorial Publications at Princeton University. He has a diverse resume of awards and accomplishments. He won an American Institute of Architects Long Island Archi-Award; designed the “Mood River!” exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts; received Honorable Mention for Metropolis ID Magazine Household Product of the Year; and has showcased industrial and product design works in museums and design houses nationally.

HDR Director of Health Chris Bormann, AIA, ACHA, said, “Daniel brings a career’s worth of experience, expertise and leadership with healthcare clients in New York and he understands this region well. His diverse talents and passion for design will bring a new perspective to our work.”

“Daniel’s commitment to his clients and his collaborative design approach are a perfect fit for our New York office,” said Dan Lutz, Manhattan managing principal. “We are very excited that Daniel is joining our team and expanding our healthcare leadership and capabilities for current and future clients.”
