D2 Welcomes Ed Breen to the Studio!

D2 welcomes Ed Breen to our growing Life Sciences team. Ed brings almost 40 years of professional experience gained most recently at HDR and has practiced in all aspects of Life Sciences and Healthcare design and management. Ed’s experience also spans into Higher Education, bolstering our growing relationships with local universities.

Ed has built a reputation of being a hands-on project leader, providing strategic and technical oversight, influencing the design quality, and ensuring a high level of service. His clients describe him as a team aligner, enjoying the levity he brings to the project journey as well as the calm, continuous pressure toward the finish line that he applies. These qualities have allowed Ed to gain the trust of some of the region’s largest companies leading to award winning projects and multiple publications.

“After working on Research and Higher Ed projects for almost 25 years, with large and larger firms, I am delighted to find an established, mid-sized firm that wants to grow in that project type.

I am looking forward to executing plans grounded in precedent while exploring better ways to enable scientific research.”

We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Ed in the studio. In addition to his unparalleled expertise, he sites honesty, joy, and respect as his professional passions. We look forward to working together, loving what we do, and delivering highly successful client experiences and projects.

Outside of work, Ed enjoys spending most of his time outside – biking and hiking. He also enjoys gardening, cooking, and gaining inspiration through travel.

Welcome to the studio, Ed!
