Jeffrey Shaw, Principal, AIA, LEED-AP
In 2009 Jeff was named Principal of Donham & Sweeney. Jeff received his Bachelor of Architect Degree from the Syracuse University School of Architecture.
Jeff’s architectural interests center on a desire to promote the role that every building plays in shaping the public space we share. Whether it’s a religious facility, a housing project or a civic institution he believes each can benefit from careful attention to the essential and desired characteristics that make up neighborhoods, towns and regions.
Jeff’s major projects include: the Brookline Public Safety Building, Russell Place Housing in Arlington, MA, the Westbrook Public Safety Building in Westbrook, ME, the Belmont Fire Headquarters and Substation, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and renovations to the Arlington Street Church. Other projects that he has worked on include First Parish Church in Saco, ME and Public Safety Buildings for Beverly, Yarmouth and Foxborough, MA in addition to several projects at Andover Newton Theological School, including the Wilson Chapel and renovations to Davis Hall. Jeff also has experience in construction.
Jeff is an active member of the Park Street Church in Boston and serves on the Finance and Administration committee and the Facilities subcommittee. Recently he has begun serving pro-bono on the church’s 200th anniversary $10 million dollar renovation and restoration building campaign scheduled to be completed in 2009.
Jeff and his wife live in Somerville and enjoy traveling throughout the world. Outside the office Jeff enjoys running and building furniture and other custom woodworking projects.
