Beardsley’s entry into the Capital Region represents both a commitment to existing clients in the area, and a growing commitment to the region.
James (Jace) is a national award-winning architect with nearly two decades of experience in the allied disciplines of architecture, construction, real property development, and interior design. Jace joins Beardsley from Phinney Design Group where he served as VP/Creative Director.

Jace’s experience also includes work in commercial projects, including master plans for churches, hotels, golf courses, ski resorts, and the Saratoga Racecourse, which involve both new construction and historic preservation. He has designed numerous custom residential properties throughout the Saratoga Springs, Adirondack, and Lake George regions, as well as urban commercial and residential developments throughout the Capital District.
“We’re privileged and excited to have Jace join our team at Beardsley. We look forward to using his experience and talents in both architecture and the construction community to help Beardsley grow in the Capital Region,” said Joseph S. Kime, P.E., President of Beardsley.
