The Team ›

MANAGEMENT TEAM

A key departure point for SGA is our philosophy which is based on SERVICE. We believe in strong Principal commitment to each project and the number of projects that the firm will undertake will be limited to that which can be realistically serviced. Architecture and construction is more than meetings and numbers - it is the sum of the aspirations of numerous participants of a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences which, together, can create winning compositions for both the balance sheet and the design awards. Further, we take the responsibility seriously that people build their lives in the environments which we create.

The Team is the essential building block of the project. Cooperation, coordination, and mutual respect and trust are the key components for success of the team. We believe that "pride of ownership" is important for everyone involved in the team. Attention to detail and the interactive process are two aspects in which we all strive and succeed under this team structure.
