Sam Sherman, Principal
Sam has more than 35 years experience in the design and construction industries. His academic training in Architecture was at The Rhode Island School of Design and the Boston Architectural Center. Coming to the Vineyard to live in 1970, Sam worked as a carpenter for many years, doing general contracting himself before being hired by Architect Niels Gabel Jorgensen. Sam was with Niels for over six years doing residential and commercial design. Although Sam still holds a Massachusetts Contractor's License, he has devoted his time solely to design for the past 28 years. As Principal of the Firm, Mr. Sherman is directly involved in all projects taking a lead role in the design process and relying heavily on his construction experience during the preparation of construction documents. Although other members of the Firm may share the load during construction administration, Sam remains actively involved in each project through its conclusion.
