Jason Popkin, Registered Architect


Jason Popkin has a total of 35 years of architectural experience. The projects that he has managed span across residential, commercial, and religious. His responsibilities include client relations, architectural design, preparation of contract documents, administering AIA contracts, extensive on-site construction  administration, and proposal development. He listens to the client and understands that a successful project depends on clear communication amongst all team members. He leads a team of architects and staff to accomplish the tasks required to complete a project. He comes from a family-owned electrical construction company and provides unique insight into on-site construction dynamics. He can work with owners and contractors, big or small.


Recent work includes master planning and implementation of extensive renovations at day camps in Long Island, Pearl River (Rockland) and Staten Island for UJA-Federation New York. Jason has completed multiple seasons of design and construction; resulting in renovated and new ground-up pavilions as well as developing new aquatic centers; opening on-time for summer campers. For the upcoming 2022 winter construction season, he has prepared construction documents for the replacement of a four-pool aquatic complex on Long Island and administered competitive bidding of the contract documents for a reconstruction of the central pool complex at the Pearl River camp, now under contract.


He has been working on many exterior restorations and has prepared scoping reports for churches throughout Brooklyn & Queens. On the HUYS development project, $75MM with Sciame Construction, not only was he the project architect overseeing a majority of the field work, he also performed as the owner representative - keeping the Dutch owner apprised of the project progress while facilitating all owner decisions. He was the project architect for the Ronald McDonald House NY expansion and lobby renovation. He worked closely with Stucturetone, the construction manager, to keep the project on schedule. During construction, the building remained partially open for children undergoing cancer treatment. He is presently the project architect for the mechanical upgrades of St.Joseph’s Seminary in Yonkers and working on numerous church restorations.


Previously, working with Jeff Vandeberg Architect, he was on the original team to design and construct the very successful Chelsea Market project. In the past he had his own architectural firm and completed a number of specialty residential projects.
