Hospital / Facility Stakeholders

“I have worked with Belinda Currin on several projects. Belinda is very meticulous and detail-oriented. She has a great working knowledge concerning the various applicable codes. Belinda goes the extra distance to make sure that the project is managed effectively. She provides quality work, from the specifications and design development, to the construction process and through the punch list and final acceptance. Belinda is a great asset to a project team.”

Rick Sanders, Former Director of Plant Services, Safety and Security, CHS – Southside Regional Medical Center


“Working with Belinda in the development of two dialysis facilities simultaneously was incredible. Her energy and enthusiasm was amazing. She really listened to the clinical and technical staff about the workflow and the delivery of care to patients and was able to capture that in the facility design. She showed commitment to the entire process, demonstrating stewardship with our budget and interceding between contractors and owners so that needs were clearly communicated and managed. She is highly responsive to requests from all parties and communicates effectively with all stakeholders. Ultimately we completed both projects on time and on budget and what made it even better, was that Belinda made it fun. I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again on other projects in the future”

Debbie Cote, MSN, RN, CNN, NE-BC, Former Administrator, Dialysis Program, UVA Health System


“In working recently with Belinda from Currin Design Consulting, LLC to reconfigure space within our current hospital, I found her to be well-versed in the components, functions and co-dependence of services, both on the support and delivery side of healthcare. Belinda has always been easy to access and quick to respond when called upon. Deadlines are met, and appointments are kept. Belinda has approached our challenges with an open mind while skillfully guiding stakeholders to an acceptable and obtainable solution. Belinda has a good mixture of knowledge, assertiveness and friendliness that gives her the savvy to negotiate what can be tense interactions. If you have a need to reconfigure or build new in healthcare, I recommend you bring Currin Design Consulting, LLC in as part of your team.”

William (Bill) Bryant, Director of Facilities Management, Westminster Canterbury – Charlottesville, VA

“It’s rare to find a firm that truly understands the needs and requirements that are essential for a successful healthcare construction project, and it’s even more uncommon to find one that does this consistently, with integrity and at a reasonable price point while integrating flexibility for increased functionality and efficiency into the design.  Belinda has been a great “healthcare partner” and has worked with both the facilities and clinical teams assisting in program development, schematic design and master facility planning.   Belinda has consistently delivered many phenomenal designs on aggressive timelines.  She has been committed to providing innovation to projects and has extensive knowledge of healthcare facility regulatory requirements as well as providing a realistic approach to planning and design for existing facilities to accommodate changing technologies and adherence to regulatory requirements.”

Benjamin S. Blankenship, CHFM, Director, Facility Support Services, Carilion New River Valley Medical Center 


“I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Currin on several projects; namely: Eastern State Mental Health Facility; Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute Pharmacy Improvements; and two projects for Horizon Behavioral Health Services creating Intermediate Care Facilities in the community.

In all of these endeavors, I have been impressed with her knowledge and attitude toward meeting the client’s needs. All of these projects benefited greatly from her involvement, and I recommend (Ms. Currin) highly if your project involves mental health or development disability services.”

Contractors / Construction Managers

“I had the pleasure of working with Belinda Currin on one of our Behavioral Health Projects in Richmond. Upon our request she provided a third party review of the design documents. She was very thorough in providing code analysis; constructability review; value management suggestions as well as coordination gaps in the document. Her work was very organized and was completed within the time requested. She also took time to review her comments with the team and participated in discussing and developing solutions for all identified issues.  She was very respectful towards her peers in her comments and review of the documents.  I would recommend Currin Design Consulting, LLC as a third party design review consultant.”
