PS&S Expands in Cherry Hill
Paulus, Sokolowski and Sartor (PS&S) today announced its continued expansion in Southern New Jersey with the addition of three Architects, formally of Moorestown-based Costanza Spector Clauser Architects (CSCA). CSCA specialized in providing architectural and interior design, project planning and graphics and rendering services with a concentration in the healthcare sector.
Charles Clauser will be Senior Director of Architecture, Harry Wright and Stephen Sgro will both be Senior Architects, all in the Cherry Hill office.
“We are thrilled that Charles, Harry and Stephen will be joining the company,” said John Sartor, Chief Executive Officer of PS&S. “In recognizing the importance of the healthcare industry, not only in New Jersey, but also the entire region, we are looking forward to adding their architectural expertise in that sector to our fully integrated offerings.”
CSCA was founded in 1960 as the practice of Joseph Costanza, Jr. Architect. The company has provided a vast array of architectural services – including architecture, interior design, and planning feasibility – to a wide variety of clients.
“This is an exciting time for us,” said Mr. Clauser. “Combining our experience with the existing expertise at PS&S is going to amplify the architecture side of the business – and coupling that with the technical engineering and design excellence is going to create tremendous opportunities.”
After attending Spring Garden College, Mr. Clauser served in the Navy on an aircraft carrier. Following his discharge, he attended Drexel University’s Evening School of Architecture and became a registered architect in 1977. As a partner and President of CSCA, Mr. Clauser was responsible for the daily operations including business development and project scheduling.
Mr. Wright graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Temple University in 1989 and became a registered architect in 2003. He is a former President of the West Jersey section of the American Institute of Architects. Mr. Wright served as Vice President of Studio Management at CSCA and was responsible for managing CAD production standards and protocols, production quality control, project management and software integration.
Mr. Sgro studied at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, and obtained his Bachelor of Architecture from Temple University in 1991. He has been a registered architect since 1996 and a LEED accredited professional since 2009. Mr. Sgro was Vice President of Design Management at CSCA. He was responsible for design quality control, project management, firm IT, and business development including marketing, web presence and graphics. With his LEED certification, Steve guided the firm’s sustainability responsibilities as well.
“These three bring a combined 88 years of experience in the architecture industry,” said Todd Heacock, Executive Vice President of the Building Group for PS&S. “Their in-depth knowledge and astute experience in the business is going to solidify our architecture practice.”
“This is an exciting time at PS&S,” added John Sartor. “By Labor Day, we will be doubling our office space in Cherry Hill which will allow us to serve the growing demand of the region. In addition to the boost in our architecture business, we are also growing our land practice group to include expanded services in our environmental, civil and survey offerings.”
