Director Tania Wee
Ms Tania Wee has worked on projects of various building types, scope and complexity from residential, commercial, mixed developments, institutional to industrial.
She now leads the Healthcare arm of DP Architects, specialising in delivering good Healthcare Architecture.
Tania believes it is the social responsibility of healthcare architects to influence, by good design, both the patient’s ability to heal as well as the staff’s well-being. She has always been passionate about designing in partnership with clients and consultants for the big picture. Helping clients excel in their work environments is, to her, what makes a healthcare project relevant.
In 2011, Tania was the Project Director for the 300-bed Fook Kuin Medical Centre project in Sandakan, Sabah, Malaysia. Under her leadership, the project team completed Schematic Design up to Building Plan submission. On that project, Tania was in charge of the entire consortium team, including the architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, landscape architects, sustainable solution designers, and infrastructure engineers. She strongly believes the co-location of project teams on major and complex projects is necessary to achieve a good product in a fast-track environment.
At present, Tania is a key lead on the Sengkang General and Community Hospitals (SKGH) project in Singapore. A 1,400-bed hospital with 200 swing beds and an extensive specialist outpatient clinic building, SKGH is currently the single largest hospital in the region. She also oversees the Punggol Polyclinic project in Singapore.
Tania advocates quality senior care in Singapore and encourages dialogue on ageing in place and how to make senior living comfortable, dignified, and meaningful.
Tania is a registered architect with a degree in Architecture and a Masters degree in Construction Economics and Management. She is a certified Universal Design Assessor, certified with The Center for Health Design’s Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification, and is a Fellow in the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators.
