EAPC welcomes Shadab Karim to our Phoenix office, as Healthcare Planner and Designer.

Shadab earned his LEAN Healthcare Certificate from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee and is an Associate at the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
Shadab has over a decade of healthcare planning and programming experience for both new and phased construction and renovations on a wide range of projects, from Academic Medical Centers to Ambulatory Care Buildings. His responsibilities have included strategic clinical planning, healthcare operational and departmental programming and planning, medical equipment integrative planning, project coordination, and contribution to healthcare facility planning associated research. Shadab is passionate and skilled in Emergency & Diagnostic Department designs, with multiple projects in Surgical, Ambulatory and Inpatient-focused services.
“Shadab is a perfect fit to lead our Healthcare Team in Phoenix, as well as bolster our Medical Planning and Design Team company-wide. His Healthcare Planning and Design experience since 2003 is extraordinary. We look forward to continuing our success in the Phoenix Healthcare market with Shadab as our local Phoenix Leader!” -Jim Tyler, Vice President, Senior Mechanical Engineer, Partner
Shadab has worked on several major healthcare projects across the United States, and even some abroad. One of the projects dearest to him is the 1.2 million square foot Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital (previously Wishard Hospital) in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“By improving the environment through physical design and operational improvements, I can contribute to the healing process of others and also create a safe and comfortable working environment for one of the most hard-working groups of people: our caregivers and their supporting team.”
Having worked at healthcare-focused consulting and architecture firms that didn’t have in-house engineers, he is excited to join EAPC and be part of a more collaborative process with different disciplines working together as one team.
He is fluent in four languages: English, Arabic, Urdu, And Hindi. His favorite pass time activities are landscaping, cooking, trying new cuisines, and a little bit of soccer (or as he would call it, football). He loves travelling to different parts of the world, exploring old and new architecture, photography, and misses fishing in the open sea.
