Who We Are

James Saunders, LEED® AP BD+C

Project Architect

James works on all phases of projects, but he especially enjoys construction documentation and construction administration. That’s when he focuses on detailing, and where he quickly and cleanly resolves any issues that arise. His approach hinges on collaboration: On a typical day, he works closely with project owners, team members, consultants, and contractors to ensure a smooth and seamless completion.

Before joining SGA James served as a job captain and associate at CBT Architects. During his 15-year tenure at the firm he specialized in multifamily and hospitality projects. He is now applying the skills he gained there to new sectors, including life sciences. Regardless of the industry, he particularly welcomes projects that achieve high levels of sustainability, a goal he strongly supports.

James earned a master’s degree in architecture from Northeastern. In his spare time, he heads outdoors to sail or to run. His goal is to complete a half marathon. Other members of his household are helping him train: His wife Rachel and his dog Pearl are avid runners themselves. His daughter Riley doesn’t join them yet. Born in September 2021, she still has to learn to crawl before she can run.
