Grant Sauder (1933-2022)

Grant Sauder retired from his architectural practise well over a decade ago before his passing. During the forty-plus years when providing personalized consulting services in Niagara, the last part of this period was from his office in the City of Thorold, where Grant owned and sensitively repurposed a heritage firehall building. Grant authored numerous commercial, residential and institutional buildings within our region and successfully undertook some challenging renovation projects that have ultimately preserved parts of our local history. The linked obituary captures a few of Grant’s eclectic passions beyond architecture. In all things, he possessed a practical talent for solving problems frugally and seemed well-liked by his clients for this reason.  I came to know and respect  Grant through our mutual participation with the Niagara Society of Architects, where he’d proudly share some of his project conquests. We will miss his friendly aspect.

  • After a meeting with a Quartek representative to discuss the project and Quartek’s reputation and experience with our type of project we were glad to bring Quartek on board to manage the project. We are very pleased with what Quartek has accomplished so far and look forward to working with them in the development of the cottage subdivision.

  • Quartek handled my severance application in Niagara-on-the-Lake very proficiently and dealt with the continuous Town demands in a very professional manner, until all issues were satisfactorily resolved.
