Jim Sheffield is a Principal with Nicholson Sheffield Architects Inc. and has successfully led a broad range of our firm’s most recognizable buildings.

This approach involves developing a comprehensive understanding of how a finished project will be used, and how its design may be refined and improved throughout the course of the work.

Jim graduated from the Architectural Technology Program at Fanshawe College in 1991. He worked with our firm before attending the University of Toronto for his Bachelor of Architecture. After graduating and working for a number of award-winning firms in Toronto, Jim returned to the firm in 2000, becoming an associate in 2004, and partner in 2007.

Jim is active in the community, committing time to a variety of not-for-profit organizations and committees. He is a past member of the City of London Urban Design Peer Review Panel and manages local soccer and hockey teams.   He sits on the Board of Directors for the London District Construction Association as First Vice President.
