Founding partner James (Jim) Carlberg Continues to play a significant roll in the company he has led for almost 50 years. A graduate in Architecture from the University of Washington, Jim returned to his native New Westminster to collaborate with the late Don Jackson, establishing the predecessor of CJP Architects, Carlberg Jackson Partners, in 1954. Under Jim's steady leadership and commitment to dependable client service, the practice quickly became established as one of New Westminster's more successful business ventures. He continues to give professional guidance to the company's 2 other directors on a daily basis, taking an active roll on many of CJP Architects major commissions. With his broad perspective and rich experience earned throughout half a century of practice, Jim participates in conceptual design development and the administration of projects, maintaining an interest in their realization throughout all phases of the work. His depth of knowledge is a product of the company's established client base, which historically has included many major civic and government projects, especially education and health care facilities. Jim has also offered his typical Director-in-Charge wisdom and guidance to a variety of recreational facility projects. Jim has always enjoyed camaraderie with the company's spectrum of clients, and he continues to pursue new opportunities. Working to encourage and support his fellow colleagues in an era of evolution and transition, Jim is committed to maintaining vitality and excellence in all aspects of the company's work.
