Josh’s passion for architecture and the pursuit of information in the field of design and construction guide the way to create better buildings and spaces. Josh’s attention to detail results in well executed spaces that often exceed expectations. His commitment to sustainability often leads to intelligent, creative and functional design solutions. Prior practice in building and construction, as well as a “hands on” approach to design have given Josh valuable experience, while fulfilling an interest and respect for the construction process.

Josh joined SVPA Architects in September of 2008 and became an Associate in 2016.
