Our Mission Statement
SNS Architects & Engineers, PC’s clear vision is to continue delivering quality design services, creating environments which meet the challenges of our time. Rapidly changing technology, a changing living and work place, environmental issues and resources, and greater demands by our clients, are principles that guide us. Although our focus has broadened over the years, our vision has remained steadfast through six generations of principals. We are dedicated to meeting our client’s needs and desires to their building sites and the environment, and to the latest materials and methods of our age. In our pursuit for excellence, our approach is clear: to provide the best Design, Service, and Value to our clients.
Design dwells somewhere between the disciplines of science and art. Although some firms may be content with functional solutions to problems at hand, SNS responds with design that are pragmatic, valuable and aesthetic. We incorporate solutions with a wide variety of human, physical, and external factors; this results in spaces that bear vitality, productivity, flexibility, identity and innovation.
As part of a mature firm, we know that our value to our clients is measured by the value we add to their projects. This may be by the materials or methods we select, or the innovative way we use them. Good design has greater value and the results are visible.

We listen. Each project is unique and requires specific resolutions.
We listen carefully. Our clients’ objectives and ultimate goals determine our methods and solutions so that an effective and smooth transition can be achieved between intent, execution and realization.
Flexibility is of paramount importance in our design approach. Whether the project is large or small, the level of service and attention is the same. Each design must provide our clients with the comfort that the absolute best has been achieved; aesthetically, efficiently and cost effectively with rapid response and adherence to schedules.
We solve problems. Problems and unexpected conditions on a project are challenges we meet and resolve every day. It is not enough making the most of advantageous conditions and compensating for the limitations; we enhance each project by going beyond the obvious solution and provide value that goes far beyond the fee of our services.
This is done with our response to our clients’ human, physical or external programming factors.
By listening to our clients’ objectives and understanding our clients’ goals, we synthesize program and form, materials and methods with creativity and innovation to provide spaces of vitality and identity.
Such spaces remain cost effective, flexible, and efficient with proper project management – a trait we have learned well in our almost five decades of practice.
We design. Teamwork and personal responsibility are ingrained in our design philosophy with projects served directly by Principals and associates; we remain “on top” of all conditions that may arise.
We are collaborative. Relationships with our consultants and close coordination of their work result in excellence of the end product.

“I have had the pleasure of working with a dynamic team of architects and engineers at SNS on 3 of our Express Scripts projects within the last few years. Each project required the team to use all their talents spanning from creating 3 dimension design concepts, detailing of finishes and furniture specifications, and focusing on construction timelines and phasing. The results of their work were outstanding!”
“SNS has provided, to Ramapo College of New Jersey, for many years outstanding architectural and engineering services. The projects for which the firm has been engaged range from gut renovation and rehabilitation of existing buildings to design of one of the campus’ signature facilities, the five-story Anisfield School of Business. SNS staff are client-oriented and highly professional. We look forward to many more years of a most satisfying and productive relationship with the firm.”
