Regional Healthcare Director – North Chicagoland/Iowa
Derek Dunn, AIA, LEED AP BD+C has led over 200 renovations, from surgery suites and maternity units to labs and sterile processing areas, since he joined Legat in 1996.
Many of Derek’s projects require fast-paced phased construction. He works with clients to “slide the pieces around” during planning. As a result, safety is maintained, patients get their privacy, and all functions remain active during construction.
Healthcare facility operators often contact Derek to solve logistical and code issues—he has a strong relationship with the Illinois Department of Public Health—or just call him for advice even if there is not a specific project.
Outside the office, Derek enjoys mountain biking the local trails and working on small projects around the house. Each winter, he challenges himself to watch every Oscar-nominated film.
Derek holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
