Two New Staff Join FHI!
Adam Tecza, PP, AICP has joined FHI as a Project Manager based in Philadelphia. Adam is a multi-faceted urban designer and planner with a wide range of skills including Form Based Code development, meeting facilitation, streetscape design, master planning and 3D rendering. Adam has led numerous multi-disciplinary teams in the creation of comprehensive plans, redevelopment plans, zoning ordinances, and urban design projects. He is an award-winning and published urban designer and also teaches a graduate planning studio at the University of Pennsylvania.
After collaborating on several projects with FHI staff, Adam decided to join the team. “FHI has a great reputation, passionate staff working in a highly collaborative environment across geographies and technical areas, and does really great work for a wide range of clients. The opportunity to be a part of a growing firm is really exciting,” he said.
Originally from Denver, Adam attended Boston University before getting his Master’s in City Planning at the University of Pennsylvania. A year spent living abroad in Madrid and traveling to other European cities inspired Adam to pursue a career in planning.
“I realized for the first time that cities could be fundamentally different than the ones I had experienced in the U.S.,” Adam said.
When not working to create beautiful new and livable places, Adam loves cooking, meditating, and hiking in the great outdoors.

I realized for the first time that cities could be fundamentally different than the ones I had experienced in the U.S.
Nick Campbell joins our Hartford team as a Transportation Engineer and Planner. Nick is a Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) graduate and recently completed a dual Masters’ degrees at UMass Amherst in Transportation Engineering and Regional Planning. Nick’s varied skillset will be an asset to FHI’s planning projects. Nick was first introduced to FHI at an ITE meeting where he was giving a presentation on his graduate schoolwork. The presentation focused on a pilot survey for residents of a neighborhood in Chicopee, MA that was used as a tool for city planners to improve the neighborhood.
“It seemed like a great fit for me to have the opportunity to work in a firm focused on creating more livable communities that will allow me to continue to merge my engineering and planning skills,” Nick said.
Originally from Alexandria, VA, Nick’s family connections to Massachusetts resulted in a die-hard Boston sports fan. Nick also enjoys running, swimming, and playing frisbee in his free time, but his pride and joy is the Lego City that he has constructed over the past nine years. Building better communities happens at every level.
