Sam Andras, AIA Founding Principal | Partner
Sam’s career began through work in his family’s construction company. In his ten years in construction Sam gained valuable experience working a vast majority of trades including; electrical, concrete, masonry, rough and finish carpentry, and roofing. He progressed to a superintendent position before moving into the office where he spent his last two years developing design-build documents and cost estimating.
Sam’s experience provides an understanding of construction means and methods well beyond that of a typical architect. His ability to coordinate, plan, cost and discuss alternative ideas to project development and delivery is exceptional. These characteristics are KEY to the high level of success of the firm’s projects, while providing added value to the project team.
Sam’s experience in the cannabis industry began in 2014 when 2WR was retained to take over a failing project in Colorado. The success of that project lead to others, and the development of MJ12. Spring-boarding off the firm’s national hospitality work, projects in the cannabis industry have expanded nationwide. Sam, along with Geoff McKinney, provide MJ12’s leadership in the cannabis industry.
