About the Firm

Sanders and Associates Architects, P.C. was established in 1987 in Albuquerque, NM.  James Rogers joined the firm in 1992 and the firm became Sanders Rogers Architects, P.C. until June of 2002, when it again became Sanders and Associates Architect, P.C..  We have experience with a broad range of project sizes and types, and maintain a solid client base in both the public and private work sectors.  We approach each project as an individual opportunity and devote a full effort to providing creative, cost effective designs.

Design Philosophy

At Sanders and Associates Architects, P.C. we understand the value of quality architecture and the personal enrichment that comes through interacting with rich and dynamic living and working spaces.  We believe that one's surroundings have the potential to stimulate as well as shelter.  The firm always seeks aesthetic design solutions, often in spite of limited project budgets.  Our diversity of professional discipline enables us to take a holistic approach to each project.  We strive to integrate our architecture with its specific environment by using plants, site features, and interior elements which reinforce our design concepts.  Our role includes responsible stewards of the natural environment, and we endeavor to use materials which are environmentally sensitive, locally obtainable, and contextually appropriate to their application.  The firm takes great pride in both the aesthetic quality and enduring character of our buildings.

Professional Approach

By selecting our firm, each client is investing their trust in our abilities and professional experiences.  We focus on being sensitive to the client perspective. Our emphasis on delivering results on time and in budget has helped give Sanders and Associates Architects, P.C. an excellent reputation in the local marketplace.  Unlike many architectural offices, the principal of the firm is actively involved with each project and is personally accountable to the client for designs.  It has also been our experience that good designs can play a significant role in reducing or holding the line on projected constructions costs.

Sanders and Associates Architects, P.C. has a long record of producing high-quality construction documents.  Our documents are generally recognized by the local construction industry for facilitating clear and accurate construction bids, incurring minimal construction changes, requiring limited field clarification, and generally enabling timely and efficient construction.  Our office also provides comprehensive construction administration services.  We frequently visit our construction sites and take the time to fairly administer the process.  This proven ability to work effectively with others has helped the firm develop long-standing relationships with both our professional associates and the local construction industry.
