Hoefer Wysocki Receives USAF Design Award


MacKown Dental Clinic Award Ceremony

Hosam’s been busy lately. As the lead designer for the MacKown Dental Clinic project at Lackland AFB, Hosam flew to San Antonio to officially receive the USAF Honor Award for the project from Major General Timothy A. Byers.

The 55,617 GSF  facility is going to be a true icon on the base and is still on track for an early 2012 completion, along with LEED Gold certification.

Hosam Habib is AIA KC’s Volunteer of the Year

Our very own Hosam Habib was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award from The American Institute of Architects Kansas City Chapter last night and we couldn’t be more proud. The award was given for his “outstanding dedication and contribution to the advancement of the AIA Kansas City Chapter” but he didn’t do it alone. Staff members Michael Goslinga and Andrew Cortez pitched in quite a bit of their spare time to help him create an ambitious program.

Hosam, Michael and Andrew worked together to create a 12-part series on healthcare architecture and programming for beginning-level architects.  The program included six classroom sessions and six on-site visits to hospitals and laboratories.

Not only did the series sell out, but there was even a waiting list.  Feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive and there is already planning underway for an intermediate-level series in early 2012, as well as other category-specific series.

The official nomination recognizes Hosam’s dedication, expertise, and enthusiasm – qualities we see in him every day.

Congratulations, Hosam.
