Meetings may include a 15-minute educational session.  Andrew Koska will join for this meeting to provide a brief introduction to the American College of Healthcare Architects, an organization that has been certifying hundreds of healthcare architects since 2000.  He will touch on their mission, value, certificants, and how to join.

ANDREW KOSKA, AIA, LEED AP BD+C - Associate Principal, Health, Perkins&Will, Houston
Born and raised in Houston, Andrew always knew he wanted to be an architect. After witnessing first-hand how a space can influence the overall wellness of patients in hospitals, his passion turned toward healthcare. “The built environment creates influential spaces and better spaces create better experiences.” He approaches every space with the resolve to improve its effectiveness and produce more enjoyable spaces that foster quicker, more organic healing.  He looks at the big picture of each project by working directly with clients and staff to build a plan that improves the space, no matter the size of the change.
