Jim is a highly experienced architect and project manager, adept at designing and renovating large-scale projects in the institutional and private sectors, which he has been doing for over 20 years. He is valued here for his skills in programming, client relations, design, team coordination, supervision and contract administration – all important factors in the life of our projects. His responsibilities also include overall office operations and review of project schedules, budgets and quality-assurance.

Jim’s work is concentrated in the transportation. He managed our $30 million DeKalb Avenue Subway Station Rehabilitation project and completed the $40 million, 14th Street/Union Square Subway Station Rehabilitation project, which was selected for an Award of Merit for the Best of 2000 Projects by New York Construction News. He was project manager for the 16-unit mixed-use Perry Street condominiums in Manhattan and also led the project team for our reconstruction of the Vandenberg Clock Tower for the State University of New York campus at New Paltz. Recently, Jim was involved in the design study of the Tianjin Trade Union Theme Park in Tianjin, China.

Jim led our design team on the adaptive reuse of an old Con Ed substation in Brooklyn into the Kaplan Center for Community Services, the flagship building for the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services. He also worked to coordinate our efforts on the successful rehabilitation of the historic Pittsburgh Building for the Lally School of Management at RPI. He was awarded a prestigious Fisher Traveling Scholarship to research and document low-rise, high-density housing prototypes in Western Europe in 1981.
