James Hubbard, AIA, NCARB

Myrtle Beach Office Leader

Principal

Vice President and Principal Jim Hubbard serves as LS3P’s Myrtle Beach Office Leader.  Jim strives to create a culture of design service as a trusted advisor to the client, to the firm, to the project’s construction team, and most importantly, to the community. Jim properly plans to allow for a seamless progression of a client’s project through varied economies and circumstances. He listens in order to understand his client’s and contractor’s needs; and if he doesn’t understand what those needs are, he asks.

His presence and professional leadership extend beyond the Horry-Georgetown/Grand Strand area. He is the past president of AIA South Carolina; whose mission is to engage with policymakers and the public in shaping the building environment for the public good. His architectural design and planning expertise include long-range master plans, community facilities, high-rise, resort, clubhouse, restaurant, retail, multi-family, and hospitality from initial marketing strategy through construction administration.

Through his design service, Jim has successfully managed over $1.5 billion in development cost for a wide range of project types.  His projects range from a single $150 million tower project to multiple projects with much smaller budgets.  With just shy of three decades in the Horry and Georgetown County area, Jim has earned a reputation for on-time and on-budget design service management.
