In his role at TEG, Ernie is responsible for client relations from the initial discovery with clients, through programming and design phases. He truly excels in assisting clients with solving their facility challenges through efficient design — ultimately ensuring that their vision and strategic objectives are fulfilled. During his career with TEG, he has completed more than 40 master site and facility plans — his primary focus within the firm. He has worked internationally while at TEG traveling to the UAE, Costa Rica, and Panama to represent the firm and to develop creative solutions for clients with lesser-developed healthcare environments. He worked closely with Wayne Estopinal to pursue international work as well as in the recruitment and retention of domestic clients. His belief is that successful projects engage the input of the entire project team — including consultants and owners — to refine the vision by fully exhausting each detail.
