Project Manager/Sr. Designer
Belinda Majors has over 20 years of experience in the field of interior design. After several years in high-end residential design during the 1980’s, Belinda shifted her focus to Retirement Living. Many projects included multi-level care facilities and several new Skilled Nursing Facilities where she was actively involved in all aspects of the design. Belinda began doing research in the field of geriatric design, barrier-free design and Color Theory with emphasis on the effects of color in the health care environment. Her work included projects for Northern California Presbyterian Homes for the Aging, Southern California Lutheran Homes Retirement Facilities and Sunrise Development Corp.
During the 1990s, Belinda’s work transitioned to the field of acute care facilities, medical office buildings and general healthcare offices. She joined the firm of Euthenics, Inc. as a project designer and advanced to project manager supervising the Santa Monica staff for 4 years. Her work at Euthenics included dozens of new hospitals and remodeling projects for National Medical Enterprises and Tenet Healthcare Systems facilities in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Working closely with the corporate project managers and hospital administrators at NME, Belinda was instrumental in developing Master Interior Design Concepts and addressing functionality, aesthetics and marketing objectives.
Ms. Majors joined Pickett Design Associates in 1997 and is presently a senior project designer. Her completed projects include Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center Replacement Hospital and the Ronald Reagan UCLA Replacement Hospital. She is currently working on the Kaiser Permanente Anaheim Medical center project and was involved in the initial programming phase of UC Davis Telemedicine Resource Center.
Successfully designing and managing many projects in the State of California, Belinda is very experienced in working with local/state agencies, especially O.S.H.P.D., to obtain approvals for products and installations. She has developed what O.S.H.P.D. calls “one of the best” reporting systems for the submittals of interior finishes and products. Another active area of development credited to Ms. Majors has been her work with facility managers to implement interior finish management systems for their on-going use. Belinda has worked on all phases of work, including research of products for compliance to codes, space planning with emphasis on barrier-free design, estimating and detail budgeting, project administration and complete working drawings.
Ms. Majors is a certified Interior Designer in the State of California and continues to be active in various interior design programs and organizations. She is currently researching products and concepts for sustainable environments as they pertain to healthcare facilities.
