R. Glen Stephens


In 1976 Glen Stephens proudly established a “client centered” architectural firm dedicated to designing buildings that are functional, striking and innovative. Glen’s designs are the result of carefully listening to his customers’ individual needs and requirements. Glen’s designs focus on identifying the distincitiveness of the clients’ business not his.

Since inception, Glen’s vision of a “client centered” architectural firm continues to attract wise business people ready to embrace his unique approach to innovative design excellence. SAA Architecture LLC. has designed over 20 million square feet of commercial, manufacturing, distribution, bio-lab, office and retail space in the Mid Atlantic area of the United States.

Glen has developed and designed twelve R&D, retail, office and distribution facilities that he has participated in as a partner. He has a superb track record in commercial real estate and property management, making him even more mindful of client needs, scheduling and budget considerations; just ask his satisfied customers!

Glen earned his Bachelor of Architecture Degree from the University of Maryland. Glen was fortunate to be a member of the first graduating class of the school of Architecture. The experience of being a senior architectural student for five years provided him with more years of studio design than Master graduates.

Glen has an unrelenting thirst for knowledge, new materials and technology that he brings to firm to help his customers benefit. He has become an acknowledged leader in Tilt-up Concrete Construction and he continues to develop innovative adaptations of this and other technologies, always staying on the leading edge in architecture. He often visits other states to picture study and review what others are doing with tilt-up construction.

Glen is frequently asked to speak and share his years of wisdom at schools and professional associations. Glen is a Registered Architect in the states of Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina and the District of Columbia. Glen also holds a NCARB certification.

Because of his vast knowledge and experience in designing all types of workspaces, Glen is able to share his knowledge on material handling, advancements in distribution technologies, among other aspects of plant, warehousing, and office and retail design.

Glen Stephens has been asked to serve on the Board of Directors of the Tilt-up Concrete Association (TCA). SAA has been an active supporter of the TCA since its creation and has the distinction of being considered charter members. Glen’s selection marks the first time an Architect has been elected to this Board. Glen’s selection is an acknowledgment of the firm’s leadership in promoting Tilt-up construction on the east coast for well over 18 years.
