BarberMcMurry Architects’ design of Hicks Orthodontics was featured in Orthodontics Products magazine’s November 2018 issue (pp. 18-21). The article, “Designing the Future,” outlined many of the strategies BMA’s designers use to ensure our healthcare spaces are intuitive and beautiful, encouraging the whole health of the patient.
“One of the biggest trends we’re seeing is designing spaces that connect with nature, that emphasize natural daylight and whole-patient wellness,” BMA vice president Ryan Dobbs says in the article. “We’re finding our clients and their patients are most satisfied when we [design] offices that connect to nature and feel warm, welcoming and open.
Kelvey “Kel” Thompson is BarberMcMurry’s new submittals coordinator.
Thompson recently relocated to Knoxville from Louisiana, where he had worked as a construction administration coordinator on multiple projects there and in southern Texas. As a CAC, he coordinated project information and monthly meetings between clients, general contractors and the design team and conducted administrative site visits.
Thompson attended the School of Architecture at Southern University and A&M College of Baton Rouge and has also worked as a carpenter and flood restoration project superintendent.
At BarberMcMurry, Thompson will be responsible for the flow of documents between project manager, design team and the general contractor.
