Perkins+Will extends its commitment to the UK market with the relocation of David Green and Bill Nation

Global architecture and design firm Perkins+Will continues its expansion and commitment to its European client base with the transfer of Principal David Green, AIA, LEED AP and Principal Bill Nation to the firm’s London office, Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will.

Green will lead European, Middle Eastern, and African (EMEA) urban design and master planning efforts for the firm. Nation will be working closely with Managing Director Jack Pringle and Design Director John Drew to grow the office’s healthcare, science and technology, and higher education practices. Green and Nation will both be relocating from Perkins+Will’s office in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

Pringle said:

“We are delighted that David and Bill are joining our team.

“David’s global expertise in urban design and master planning, and Bill’s extensive experience with large projects in healthcare operations are incredibly valuable. Their presence will help to expand our practices and increase our specialist knowledge within our London office.”

Over the past 6 years, Nation has worked on numerous healthcare, science and technology, and higher education projects throughout the United States as well as internationally in the Middle East and North Africa. His projects have included the Hamad Medical Corporation in Doha, Qatar; the American University of Beirut Medical Center in Beirut, Lebanon; and the American Hospital Dubai in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. With in-depth experience in the delivery of clinical services, information services and facilities management, Nation provides an insider’s perspective of the operational and functional requirements needed for clients.

Nation said:

“Perkins+Will is dedicated to understanding hospitals both from a design perspective as well as strategically, operationally and functionally.

“I look forward to continuing to help our clients be effective stewards of their resources and my goal is to manage and create the best possible environment for patients, students, and staff.”

In his role as Senior Urban Designer, Green will guide master planning and urban design for commercial projects and oversee the development of current projects. With more than 20 years of experience, Green has been involved with hundreds of projects from specific site and building design to large-scale urban design and planning projects. David was a member of the Georgia Tech College of Architecture faculty for more than twenty years. He was awarded both the Silver and Bronze medals from the AIA Atlanta and Georgia. He continues to lecture widely on issues of urban design, planning, and architecture.

Green said:

“I am extremely excited to be joining Perkins+Will’s team in London.

“This move represents the firm’s commitment to broaden our impact on the design of cities, districts and campuses throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. There are enormous changes afoot in those regions and we hope to bring our expertise to those areas.”
