Thomas P. Forde Joins HGA Architects and Engineers

HGA Architects and Engineers (HGA) has hired Thomas P. Forde, AIA, CSI, as a healthcare project manager and medical planner in the Mid-Atlantic office. He will work with HGA leadership to identify new business opportunities, manage client relations and lead project teams through all phases of design development for the office’s growing Healthcare Practice Group.

Forde has approximately 25 years of experience in healthcare facility planning, design, project management, and construction administration for new and renovated projects. His experience includes community and specialty hospitals, academic medical centers, acute care facilities, ambulatory care centers, medical office buildings, and laboratories.

Before joining HGA, Forde was a project leader with several Washington, D.C.-area architecture firms, where he worked with such clients as Lowell General Hospital in Lowell, MA; the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, VA; Chambersburg Hospital in Chambersburg, PA; and St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, MD.

He currently is working on a master plan for the Western Maryland Health System in Cumberland, MD.  

“A successful project is part of a collaborative planning process in which all team members—owner, architects, engineers, contractors, and user groups—identify project goals from the early planning stages and develop a roadmap to achieve those goals,” Forde said. “The team has an obligation to deliver success for the owner. My role is to help all stakeholders meet goals by developing measurable benchmarks and adapting to changing construction conditions within budget, schedule and design guidelines. Every successful project is based on collaboration and trust.”

Forde has a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. He is a registered architect in the State of Maryland, and a member of the American Institute of Architects-Washington, D.C. Chapter, the Construction Specification Institute (CDT & CCS Certified) and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering.

HGA is an integrated architecture, engineering and planning firm that helps prepare its clients for the future. With offices in Washington DC; Minneapolis and Rochester, Minnesota; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento, California, the nationally recognized firm has developed expertise in the healthcare, corporate, government, arts, community, education, and science/technology industries since 1953.
