Architectural Job Captain


Stevens & Associates, P.C. (S&A) is an award-winning, dynamic Architecture, Civil and Structural Engineering, Landscape Architecture, and Development consulting firm dedicated to building livable communities through traditional architectural design, historic preservation, and urban design.  We are passionate about projects that embrace the fabric of our New England cities and towns through adaptive reuse of old buildings, sensitive design of new buildings, and the creation of pedestrian friendly downtowns.  We pride ourselves on being trusted advisors to our clients, focusing on what is important to them, with the goal of not only meeting their needs but exceeding them. 

S&A was founded in 1990 as a small Civil Engineering firm with just two members.  Since then, we have grown, layering in disciplines to help us better meet the needs of our clients and more seamlessly carry out their projects. In 2013, we added Architecture and in 2014, we created our sister company, M&S Development. In total, we are now a team of 25 professionals who work hard to take smart ideas and turn them into successful, completed projects that add lasting beauty and value to the communities in which they reside.  

S&A’s offices are in downtown Brattleboro, Vermont, overlooking the Connecticut River.  Our team fully embraces the Vermont way of life with unlimited access to outdoor recreation, local food and microbrews, arts and culture— all just steps away from our office door.  We are equipped with broadband, making remote working not only possible but a regular practice, as we strive to support our team’s work-life balance needs.  Our location in Southern Vermont is excellent: we sit at the intersection of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, in the geographic heart of New England, providing convenient access to Bradley International Airport, as well as Amtrak service with connections to NYC, Boston, Hartford, and Montreal.
