Self Storage Now has an Industry Dream Team

York-based companies SAAarchitects, Storage Construction, and Storage Asset Management have all worked within the self storage industry along the Eastern Seaboard. The trio continues to team together on some impressive projects, and has thus gotten to know each other’s methods and industry approaches thoroughly. Over the last 15 years their collaborative accomplishments have birthed an industry team that is able to provide greater benefits to clients than ever before, earning them the title of “Self Storage Dream Team,” as dubbed by several current clients.

SAAarchitects is an award-winning architectural firm led by President Mark D. Shermeyer AIA, LEED ® GA and Vice President Danika R. S. Dallam NCARB LEED ® GA. After celebrating a 20-year anniversary milestone this year, the firm continues to provide complete planning and design services to clientele across Pennsylvania, and along the eastern seaboard states, reaching as far south as Florida and north to Massachusetts. The company’s portfolio is diverse, and includes 3.1 million square-feet (SF) of self-storage industry projects and over 75 storage facilities. Some of these projects include development of a prototype and signature look for multi-facility developers, conversions of historic structures to self storage that have received preservation awards, and creative solutions of challenging sites or existing structures to maximize net rentable space. All of these projects are approached with a fresh perspective to focus on exceeding the clients’ expectations and desired end result.

 

Storage Asset Management (SAM) is a self storage focused Third Party Management company, owned by Jay Hoke and Alyssa Quill.  SAM is also located in York, PA. The company boasts over 50 years of industry experience at the executive level and over 160 employees at their store, regional, and corporate levels. SAM manages over 75 properties that encompass more than 3.4 million SF of self storage. They work to serve self storage owners throughout the US who are looking for additional management assistance, and also assist owners with marketing, revenue management, training, financial reporting, and property management.

 

Storage Construction is another neighboring York, PA company led by Scott Forry and Rod Lockard. They provide both general contractor and construction management services primarily for the Mid-Atlantic region exclusively for the self storage industry. Their team has constructed over 50 self storage facilities in excess of 2 million square feet. Having also owned, managed and operated their own 50 plus facilities over the past 17 years, they are industry experts.

 

When their services combine, these companies offer an incredible amount of collaborative knowledge to provide a seamless process from start to finish for even the experienced owner. The team can assist any client from the initial feasibility analysis and design phase through permit approval and construction, followed by ongoing facility marketing and management. There is no doubt that with their combined efforts this “Dream Team” will continue to accomplish great things in the industry, and leave happy clients in their wake.
