Tom Harvey, FAIA, MPH, FACHA, LEED AP
President, CADRE

Tom founded the Center for Advanced Design Research and Evaluation (CADRE) to develop and implement relevant original research. A principal with HKS and president of CADRE, his research focus is in the areas of architectural and engineering design solutions with a concern for the end user experience. Harvey believes occupant well-being and user-effectiveness are critical in creating design solutions. Throughout his 35-year healthcare architecture career, he has influenced the healthcare environment with design research studies that reveal how architecture affects safety and patient visibility; improves patient outcomes and satisfaction; increases operating efficiencies; reduces nurse walking distances; simplifies design and reduces costs – while providing the highest standard of care.
