FCA Promotes Denise Thompson to Principal
Francis Cauffman Architects (FCA), a leading full-service architecture and design firm based in Philadelphia and New York, is pleased to share the recent promotion of Denise Thompson, AIA, LEED AP BD+C to Principal. Thompson’s new position follows FCA’s appointment of eight new Associate and Senior Associate promotions, which help to underscore the firm’s sustained dedication to growth and development across all levels and market sectors.
In her new role, Thompson will continue to develop strong relationships with her existing healthcare clients and provide great service to them. She is also excited to develop new relationships within the industry and seek out new opportunities for the firm to expand and partner on great projects.
“It is exciting to have witnessed how Denise has flourished within our firm,” says John Campbell, President of FCA. “Since joining FCA in 2003, she has been a key player within our growing family, empowering her teams to conceptualize incredible design solutions and inspiring her clients with innovative approaches to the built environment. This promotion furthers the firm’s mission of design excellence, and we look forward to what she will contribute in her new role.”
Passionate about sustainable design, Thompson has nurtured this interest at FCA through her work on highly acclaimed healthcare projects such as the Vista award-winning Geisinger Wyoming Valley Critical Care building in Pennsylvania, MD Anderson Cooper Cancer Center in Camden NJ, and more recently the Main Line Health Lankenau Emergency Department in Wynnewood PA, which is seeking LEED for Healthcare certification. She has presented and been published on the topic of her belief that buildings created for the purpose of healing and treatment should not only have a positive impact on human health, but also a positive impact on the environment.
Additionally, Thompson is a past President of the AIA Philadelphia chapter and in 2017 was named one of the Building Design + Construction Magazine’s as well as Philadelphia Business Journal’s 40 Under 40. In 2013, she was awarded the Young Architect Award by AIA Philadelphia.
“My goal is to continue the great legacy that is FCA while adapting to our constantly changing industry,” says Thompson. “I want the firm to continue to deliver great work and hone our skills as professionals while building lasting relationships with our clients and potential future clients.”
As FCA continues to evolve, the firm has been able to clarify its vision, enhance its quality, and define a clear path to achieving a goal of delivering great work for clients—reinforcing its reputation as a leading name in the corporate workplace, healthcare, academic research, S&T and advanced technology sectors. This new promotion comes as the firm gears up for the opening of a number of new projects, set to debut over the next few months.
