Jim Chambers, AIA
Growing up, I was fascinated by the show This Old House. I imagined myself renovating and remodeling right alongside the team. In no time, I was building decks, refinishing basements, and even drawing up floor plans for my friends.
I truly value the time spent on the boards designing and detailing, living through the construction of those designs, and reviewing obstacles with the team. The lessons I’ve learned from my mistakes—and successes—give me an arsenal of information to draw from with each new project.
I am passionate about fully understanding the drivers behind complex projects and working closely with owners, contractors and designers to make their vision a reality. In the end, if you’re willing to do your homework, talk to the right people, think critically, and put in the hard work, you’ll get to a great solution. I feel good about bringing this collaborative approach to our clients, and know we all benefit from the team’s collective wisdom. Getting the right people into the same room for face-to-face discussions yields a far better result than 10 parallel conversations taking place in a vacuum.
