Project Architect / Manager:
Z-Group Architects is looking for a full time Project Architect / Manager with a minimum of 7 – 10 years of experience. The successful candidate will manage projects and coordinate with clients, consultants, and contractors, as well as plan, coordinate, and engage in production drawings and construction detailing. They will direct the day-to-day oversight of construction projects with big-picture planning, clear effective communication, and management of multiple timelines. They will be involved in new building designs, extensions, alternations, restoration, and conservations from the earliest stages through completion.
This demanding position requires excellent time management, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills to successfully balance a client’s needs and contractor schedules, as well as construction regulations. Ability to produce permitting and understand codes is a must. Project sizes will include large single-family residences, new build and renovations, with potential for more complex buildings including mixed-use commercial and residential.
As lead liaison, assisting in planning and designing may be required but over seeing project coordination with consultants, client, and construction process is this position’s primary responsibility. This position will require at least 2 – 3 days of in-office work, while remaining days may be worked from home. The goal is to match client’s needs and to produce sustainable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing designs.
