Requirements
  • Possess a valid license as a registered architect
  • 12+ years of experience in complex, multi-disciplinary design and analysis projects. Experience in residential design and planning
  • Demonstrated experience as an Architect of Record, preferably in other innovative building technologies
  • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and meet tight deadlines without compromising on the quality of work
  • Experience in Revit, Rhino, Google Suite, hand sketching, and verbal communication
  • Experience coordinating all phases of design (schematic design, design development, construction documents, and construction administration) with all disciplines (civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing)
  • Strong experience in Construction Administration, including RFI and submittal review, and other general construction-related correspondence
  • Proactive problem-solving skills, strong organizational skills, and ability to multitask
  • Desire to work with a highly collaborative team, on a quickly evolving product, and in a fast-paced environment
  • Interest in sustainable design, curiosity for novel architectural technologies, and desire to perfect the craft of construction
  • LEED Accredited Professional
  • Professional degree (MArch or MS) in Architecture from an accredited institution
  • Architectural Licensing preferred
  • Intuitive knowledge of the International Residential (IRC) and Building (IBC) codes, ADA guidelines, Fair Housing Act (FHA), principles of concrete design & construction, construction specifications, and test methods and standards associated with the testing of building envelope systems (AAMA/ASTM)
  • Understanding of architectural daylighting, thermal mass, and solar radiation impacts on a building. Proficiency in energy and daylight modeling software is highly desirable (e.g.DIVA, Radiance, IES)
Responsibilities
  • Lead our in-house Architecture team as well as external design partners to provide expert guidance on architectural design concepts and feasibility during design phases
  • Take responsibility for reviewing, stamping, and certifying architectural and engineering drawings for regulatory compliance and accuracy. You will serve as the official AOR for projects
  • Evaluate architectural designs ensuring feasibility, functionality, and adherence to project requirements and specifications
  • Act as the primary point of contact with local building authorities and other relevant regulatory bodies to ensure smooth and efficient approval processes for construction projects
  • Develop construction documents, wall assembly drawings, and building envelope details, with a focus on window and door systems, waterproofing, and weatherization
  • Review consultant drawings and details for design intent and successful interface with 3D-printed wall design and construction
  • Collaborate with architects, engineers, and building & material science departments to determine best practices for achieving effective weatherization, resilient design, and high thermal performance of the printed wall system
  • Develop construction diagrams to effectively communicate construction sequencing for successful integration of building envelope components and building systems (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) in the field
  • Produce drawings for submittal to various testing agencies for code compliance
  • Coordinate with software engineers, print technicians, and construction operations to ensure successful implementation of wall construction in the field
Desired Qualifications
  • Experience with Vray, Enscape, Navisworks, and Tekla/ Dynamo experience is a plus
