Q&A

with Gary Graham, FAIA,
Principal
GMI Architects
How has the COVID-19

clients to help them navigate
the current healthcare market?
As a small, focused firm, we
have two types of clients: first,
behavioral healthcare organizations that require our expertise
to conduct risk assessments,
as well as to program, plan,
and design renovations and
