    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Duncan Griffin, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, has joined HDR as a sustainable principal dedicated to helping clients create sustainable solutions aligned with their enterprise goals. A licensed architect and Lean-certified practitioner with nearly 25 years’ experience, Duncan champions the triple bottom line of equity, economy and environment as the true north in his work.

“He is one of the healthcare industry’s most respected leaders,” says Colin Rohlfing, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, director of sustainable development for HDR. “His ability to deliver high-performance environments that maximize health and well-being benefits is a game-changer for our clients. He is dedicated to achieving successful outcomes that include healthy experiences for patients/staff, flexible, fiscally responsive infrastructure and facilities that serve the community by minimizing resource impacts, including water, energy and carbon emissions.”

Duncan is well-known for his work for healthcare, lab and education projects, having recently managed initiatives on over 1.3 million square feet of hospital and clinic projects. He often engages in project design modeling for energy efficiency, and worked with the Integrated Design Lab (UW) and Solarc in Seattle to research ideal solutions for energy reduction in hospitals. The results were published in a study entitled “Targeting 100!,” which guides healthcare facilities in meeting Architecture 2030 goals by getting to 100 kBtu/SF/year.

Duncan often presents at conferences including CleanMed, the AIA National conference, Greenbuild, and ASHE National where he has spoken about research projects, simulations and their applications for high performance healthcare projects.

He is also a committed urban environmentalist, organizing and leading volunteer parties with local non-profit organizations to connect colleagues with volunteering opportunities in the Seattle, Wash., community where he lives.
