AIA Amarillo serves as the voice for architecture in the
Texas Panhandle, supporting the creation of safe,
beautiful, accessible, and sustainable environments.
FROM THE PRESIDENT
I am very pleased to report that the Amarillo Chapter of the AIA has been awarded a three (3)-year term of accreditation as a local component of the American Institute of Architects. This is the maximum length of accreditation awarded by the institute. Please refer to scanned copies of the enclosed certificate and letter for your record.
This would not have been possible had it not been for the efforts and hard work of both the 2015 and 2016 AIA Amarillo Executive Committees and the Accreditation Task Force. All of you worked very hard in gathering, assembling, and developing report documents on a lot of facets to a complex process. Thank you all so very much for your efforts, and this accreditation is a vindication of the dedication and pride local AIA members in the Texas Panhandle have towards our local chapter.
Design Principal and Co-Founder of Dekker/Perich/Sabatini Honored as 2016 AIA Fellowship Recipient
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has elevated Bill Sabatini, FAIA, ACHA to the prestigious College of Fellows. Bill Sabatini is the design principal and an original founder of Dekker/Perich/Sabatini. His election to Fellowship, according to the AIA, recognizes his achievements as an architect and honors his significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.
Over his 40 years of practice, Mr. Sabatini has focused on design for healthcare, educational, commercial and research facilities. He is one of only 400 architects nationally certified by the American College of Healthcare Architects and has contributed to the design of large healthcare projects, including ground-up hospitals for Presbyterian Healthcare Services, Indian Health Service and Good Samaritan Healthcare.
“It’s an honor to be elevated to the AIA Fellowship,” said Bill Sabatini. “I have been fortunate to work surrounded by the beauty of the Southwest, supported and inspired by colleagues and motivated and challenged by program-driven projects that clients envision to make our communities stronger.”
Bill Sabatini has completed hundreds of projects that have won numerous local, regional and national awards. As a founding principal of Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, he has contributed to the growth and success of the firm, which has been ranked by ENR Southwest as the top architecture firm for the past three years.
Sabatini and all Fellowship recipients will be honored on May 20 at the 2016 AIA National Convention in Philadelphia. Recipients are elected by a jury that considers an individual’s body of work, notable contribution to the practice, widespread recognition, the sharing of knowledge and leadership in the AIA. About 3,200 of 85,000 members of the AIA have been named Fellows.
