Date:3/2/2009

Evidence-based Design Leader will act as firm-wide resource

HOUSTON, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Confirming their commitment to research as a critical component of their practice, WHR Architects announced that Laurie Waggener, RRT, IIDA, AAHID has joined the firm as part of their Knowledge Resource Studio. A recognized leader in the field of evidence-based design, WHR have long supported the utilization of research as a means of enhancing the value of their services. However, Ms. Waggener's role is a new position in the firm.

"We are especially pleased to have Laurie Waggener as part of our team," said David H. Watkins FAIA, Chairman and Founding Principal of the firm. "Like WHR, she has been a pioneer in making the connection between better evidence, better design decisions, and better outcomes. She will be a valuable resource to our people and, by extension, to the people we serve -- patients, medical staff, students, educators and administrators."

Ms. Waggener's exceptional dual career experience makes her especially well suited to her new role. Her background as a clinical manager in respiratory care enables her to approach projects as a patient care and medical staff advocate from a functional as well as an aesthetic design viewpoint. Her training, and 15 years as a practicing design professional, provides her with an insider's understanding of the design process and possibilities.

"Joining WHR Architects is like coming home, culturally and intellectually," Waggener comments. "The firm's work in evidence-based design, the collaborative environment, and their dedication to improving the health, safety and well being of the people who use the spaces they design, all resonate with my own beliefs. It is a place where I can make a first-hand contribution to a critical body of knowledge."

Already at work with the WHR team, Ms. Waggener is framing issues from both a healthcare operations' point of view and that of the design professional to improve decision-making. She will be actively involved in identifying areas for research and accessing credible evidence for specific projects.

Ms. Waggener earned a Bachelor of Interior Design from Louisiana State University and a Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care from St. Mary's Dominican College. A founding member of the American Academy of Healthcare Interior Designers, she is also a member of the International Interior Design Association. Her projects, articles and interviews have been widely published, and she speaks frequently on her research at professional meetings.
