Joel Starkman

Joel joined Montgomery Sisam Architects in 2009, becoming a Principal in 2015. He has more than 30 years’ experience as an architect, construction manager, and in-house architect/owner representative for major development companies. Exceptionally skilled in contract administration and construction management, Joel is responsible for Quality Assurance and Quality Control throughout the office. He plays a pivotal role satisfying client expectations and addressing the rigorous demands during the technical detailing and execution phases of document development and project construction.

In his capacity as QAQC director, Joel contributes to Montgomery Sisam's projects through regular peer reviews of construction and contract documents. He provides mentorship to staff, and is highly regarded for his exceptional understanding of construction techniques and methodologies.

Joel also evaluates and monitors the firm’s existing design, production and documentation workflows. Where warranted, he defines new standards to maintain exceptional levels of consistency and quality in the firm's deliverables. Joel is fluent in several programming languages, and enjoys writing custom software applications to improve efficiencies and quality in the production and coordination of construction documentation.

Dedicated to designing and delivering high quality, cost effective and durable building results, Joel’s work has been instrumental in Montgomery Sisam’s recognition and success on a number of the firm's most notable projects, including the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Don Mount Court/Rivertowne Redevelopment, Ronald McDonald House Toronto, the University of Toronto Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and the Carleton University Health Sciences Building.
