Who We Are

Scott McMillen, AIA, CPHC

Project Architect

Scott enjoys the oscillation between management and “in-the-weeds” work that defines the role of a project architect. Detailing is his specialty: It allows him to solve a unique problem in an aesthetically pleasing way. It also plays a powerful role in establishing the essence of a project.


Scott joined SGA because the firm’s emphasis on life sciences appealed to him. Previously he worked as a project architect at Cambridge-based PCA, where he honed his expertise in retail, mixed-use, and multifamily design. Earlier he served as a project architect at Lighthouse Architecture in Philadelphia. There he completed a wide range of projects across sectors like hospitality, healthcare, government, and multifamily.


Philadelphia was also the place where Scott spent his undergraduate years, earning a Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University. But he and his wife were born and bred in New England, and they are glad to be back in this region. Today they’re happily settled in Newburyport, where you often find them paddleboarding in the summer. In the winter they snowboard in Vermont, and in the fall and spring they hike in the White Mountains.
