George J. Perham, AIA, IIDA


PRINCIPAL-IN-CHARGE, VICE PRESIDENT

George Perham has over 40 years of experience in both architecture and interior design and has been a Principal with the firm since 2000.  He obtained an Associate’s Degree from Norwalk State Technical College and is a licensed architect and registered interior designer in the State of Connecticut.

As Principal-in-Charge of the firm’s corporate and interior design projects, a successful building design for George is one in which ‘form’, both inside and out, beautifully (and naturally) follows ‘function’. Besides the diversity of his design talent, George brings to the firm the deep knowledge of someone who knows the field, literally, from the ground up. He has supervised hundreds of projects from initial site evaluation, to programming and each design phase, through construction completion.  George’s unique ability translates exterior to interior seamlessly – his focus is always on the “whole picture” and not just one aspect.

George’s extensive experience with interior design helped establish Antinozzi Associates’ interior design department in the mid-90’s and its diverse capabilities.  This expertise, especially for corporate clients, recently provided the firm the opportunity to expand its design services to a new branch office at the Merritt 7 Corporate Park in Norwalk.  The focus of this branch will not only be on the complex itself, but also on developing the corporate design practice of Antinozzi Associates into lower Fairfield County.

In addition to his role at Antinozzi Associates, George is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), the commercial real estate development association (NAIOP), the Real Estate Finance Association (REFA), the Stratford Redevelopment Agency, and the American Woodwork Institute (AWI). In his community, Perham serves on the Stratford YMCA Board of Managers and chairs its Strong Kids Campaign annual fundraising activities. He was recently involved with the University of Hartford Construction Institute and serves as a Chairman of the Fairfield County Task Force.
