ATLANTA, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beck Group, a worldwide, integrated architecture, construction, technology and professional services firm, today announced that Allen Hadden has been named as director of Healthcare Construction for the southeast. Hadden joins Beck after directing over $900 million in integrated design-build healthcare projects during 16 years at Marshall Erdman & Associates, where he most recently held the title of vice president, Construction Operations.

In this new position, Hadden will focus on accelerating Beck's healthcare design-build activity from the firm's Atlanta and Tampa regional headquarters. Beck has developed a number of notable health facilities in the region, such as the downtown Tampa USF Health Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS), a $38 million, 100,000-square-foot interprofessional learning hub for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals completed in 2012. Hadden will oversee Beck's efforts to create a broad range of additional, innovative health facilities, including medical office buildings, ambulatory surgery centers, health and wellness centers, specialty clinics and more.

"Healthcare has long been a hallmark of Beck's design-build focus, and our strategy going forward is to take a lead position in this important part of the national infrastructure," said Fred Perpall, newly elected CEO of The Beck Group. "Allen's extensive healthcare experience and skill set will be key to our ability to support that strategy throughout the Southeastern United States."
