Senior Vice President of Construction, Facilities & Design
Andy Coelho has been with Sunrise Senior Living since 2004 and currently serves as senior vice president of Construction, Facilities & Design. His primary responsibilities include overseeing the design and construction of new communities under development as well as overseeing the Design and Facilities team, to help make sure existing buildings are safe, comfortable and best equipped to support Sunrise’s care and programming.
Prior to Sunrise, Andy worked with the architecture firm, BeeryRio, which designed the Sunrise mansion prototype. This inspired him to want to see the design process through, from beginning to end, to make a better environment for residents, families, team members and owners.
Andy is committed to providing the very best atmosphere for the community teams to care for residents and focused on ensuring that the buildings look and feel residential, while simultaneously meeting complex code and life-safety requirements.
Andy earned a BA in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and a Master’s degree in Architecture from The University of Texas at Austin.
