Melanie Compton recently passed the national American College of Healthcare Architects exam to earn ACHA certification. This distinction is only held by three other architects in the state of Oklahoma. This certification recognizes Melanie as an architect who specializes in healthcare.
“When I started my career, I was immediately drawn to healthcare design,” said Melanie. “My first project at REES was a healthcare facility.”
ACHA requires its certificate holders to work towards the improvement of healthcare architecture on behalf of the public, to practice in an ethical manner, to maintain high standards of specialized continuing education and to add to the body of knowledge.
“Wonderful client relationships, planning opportunities and constant learning to keep up with evolving technology are just some of the things that keep me so invested in healthcare design,” said Melanie.
Melanie Compton, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP is a Vice President at REES and a registered architect with more than 24 years of experience. She serves REES’ healthcare clients as a Project Manager and Project Architect. Melanie is also an award recipient of REES’ JB Chenoweth award for outstanding client service and was selected as one of the top three finalists for the 2012 Architect of the Year Award by the American Subcontractor Association of Oklahoma.
