In the early 1980s, Larry Skott joined the architectural firm founded by Barry Poskanzer. It has proven to be a successful merger of partners with complementary spirits, skills and management styles who share an unwavering commitment to quality design and outstanding personal service.
Larry is a gifted and versatile architect with more than 25 years of experience in a wide range of building types, from small renovations to construction of large scale, complex new structures. His distinctive design and architectural abilities, outstanding management skills and dedication to responsive client service have provided impetus for the steady growth of the firm. Larry directs all aspects of the architectural practice including feasibility studies, schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding and construction administration.
He has in-depth experience in restoration, retrofits and new construction of commercial office, retail and high-tech industrial buildings as well as medical R&D, educational and computer facilities. Projects include the Ridge School, Ridgewood Savings Bank of New Jersey, Allendale Park, Mahwah Corporate Center, Allendale Corporate Center and the Newport Office Centers.
In addition to staff management, Larry supervises major projects, from bidding and negotiations to preparation of documents, principal review and approval of contracts, specification writing, feasibility studies and space planning. He is a former chair of the Wyckoff, NJ, Architectural Review Board and served on the Construction Board of Appeals in Ridgewood, NJ. Larry’s focus on detail has provided a value-added factor to working with Poskanzer Skott: clients know that careful attention is paid to the critical factors, large and small, that ultimately determine the success of a project.
