Welcome Andrew Humphreys on board to Woods Bagot as Asia Science & Health Leader who is currently based in our Hong Kong studio.
Humphreys is an experienced healthcare architect with an extensive track record in the design and delivery of health and science projects in Asia, the Middle East and the United Kingdom. His experience encompasses major hospital design, specialist clinical department planning, scientific research laboratories and local community facilities, having overseen and led projects at all stages of procurement from new build full service commissions to advisory consulting roles.
As Asia Science and Health Leader, Humphreys will work alongside Global Science and Health Leader and Director Georgia Singleton, to grow the capability of Woods Bagot across the sector.
"I have been working on projects in the healthcare and science sectors for many years and I have a deep respect for the professionals that deliver services in these key elements of social infrastructure,” said Humphreys. "I believe that by channeling this respect and bringing to bear a genuine passion for high-quality, evidence-based design we can deliver truly outstanding solutions to facilities all too often marred by bland, incomprehensible and even frightening spaces and experiences. Architecture and Interior Design have a major role to play in the provision of efficient, effective and empowering healthcare & research facilities that provide physical healing as well as contributing to inspirational public spaces."
According to Humphreys, creating healthcare solutions that make people feel reassured, confident and encouraged is a real passion for him.
"I am delighted to be joining Woods Bagot where the design ethos and collaborative work ethic are something I admire and aspire to contributing to as we seek to expand and extend the practices portfolio of projects."
