Berkshire Trade and Commerce March 2017

Pamela Sandler was recently accepted to the 10,000 Small Businesses program offered by Goldman Sachs:

Sandler is owner and principal Pamela Sandler AIA, LEED AP, an architectural firm she established in 1989. With offices at 31 Main St. in Stockbridge, the firm provides residential and commercial design for new construction, restorations and renovations.

She said she first heard about 10,000 Small Businesses several years ago through a business associate in another area who had participated in the program. She was recently reacquainted with it by Kowalczyk through their mutual involvement in Women Upfront, and decided to apply.

“It’s a great gift of an opportunity,” said Sandler (who was reached while away on vacation just days before the program started.) She pointed that, although she has operated her own firm for over 25 years, she has never had the complete skill set needed to effectively plan for its growth.

“You don’t learn anything in architecture school about running a business,” she commented, adding that she looks forward to addressing that gap through the program’s intensive training and mentoring.

“The key thing I’m looking for from the program is being able to define the direction of my firm for the next 20 years,” Sandler said.

That, she added, is important not just for herself but also for the continued professional development of her staff of three full-time and one part-time employees.

“I have a great team, and I want this to have a positive impact on them, too,” she said.

Pamela Sandler Architect is an award-winning architecture firm based in the idyllic Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

For thirty years, the firm has been creating residential and commercial spaces in Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut. Projects include new construction, restoration, historic preservation and renovation, each created with an eye towards unique design and joyful space. Pam’s designs have appeared in several publications throughout her multifaceted career, and she was an early champion for the use of green building materials and techniques, helping to found the Berkshire chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council.
