Stephen R. Garvin, PE, LEED AP
President / Principal
Stephen has been with Samiotes since 1993 and has been a great asset to the company ever since. So much so, that Samiotes had the pleasure of making Stephen President in 2001. In his dual roles as a Principal and the President of the firm, his responsibilities include growing and diversifying the Client base, overseeing overall design quality and standards, leading high profile projects through design and permitting, and improving efficiencies in all aspects of the business. His focus on understanding environmental sensitivity and sustainability, coupled with attaining the clients’ project goals is the foundation that we know of as Samiotes Consultants.
Stephen is most proud of his work in the education sector, including over two decades on the campus of Phillips Academy Andover (PA) and the Harvard Kennedy School Pavilions project. Additionally, he is recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED Accredited Professional. Stephen is also the Chairman of the Sudbury Planning Board.
