Lionakis is pleased to announce the continued growth and investment in our Hawai`i office with the introduction of a new leader: Dean Takasato. Dean will be joining our local team to continue growing our Hawai`i office and serve our local clients. This is an exciting time for Lionakis in Hawaii and we look forward to the great synergy created.

Lionakis’s primary markets include Civic, Commercial, Education and Healthcare, and provides Architecture, Structural Engineering, Interiors and Planning services to its clients. Some of our clients include Queens Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, Hawaii Pacific Health, and Department of Education.

Dean Takasato, AIA, joins Lionakis bringing over 20 years of local and mainland experience. As a graduate from the University of Hawai`i, Manoa Dean has a long history as a healthcare architect and medical planner. He has practiced in Hawai`i, California and Arizona and brings additional strength and expertise to the Hawaii office. His recent experience includes The Queen’s Medical Center, West Oahu Renovations, which ignited the reopening of the Hospital. Dean talks about the move to join Lionakis:

“To me, healthcare design in Hawaii is very rewarding. It allows for a blending of culture and healing. To do all of this with the backing of a large firm is energizing.”

Having Lionakis located right here on the island allows us to provide quality service and cutting edge knowledge and experience in the place where we live, work and play. Dean will be a great addition to the Lionakis team.
