Designer Joins ESA


Eckenhoff Saunders is pleased to welcome Ann Nelson, Senior Architectural Designer, to our healthcare team. Before joining the firm, Ann was a staff member of Matthei & Colin Associates for twenty-five years. She primarily worked on projects ranging in size and complexity, including clinical areas, catheterization laboratories, MRI 3T, radiology, and surgery/prep.

“I like working on the variety of different room types and spaces in the hospital setting, and I like the challenge of scientific aspects of healthcare architecture,” Ann says.

Her expertise includes design development, facilities surveys, consultant coordination, preparation of design development/permit/construction documents, IDPH/local code document submittals, and construction management.

“We’re pleased to have Ann join our growing healthcare team,” said Founding Principal Walt Eckenhoff, FAIA. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our healthcare practice and will help elevate the service we provide to our clients,” he said.

Ann received her Master of Architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology and Bachelor of Science from Southern Illinois University.
