Senior Architectural Technician - Design-focused




The Client:

Leaders in the Built Environment - A progressive professional Architectural Practice playing an increasingly large role in the rebuild of Christchurch. An extremely talented and diverse team of designers, architects and specialists responsible for creating some of New Zealand's most memorable buildings.
The Role:
As an experienced Architectural Technician, you will be responsible for;

  • working drawings
  • design detailing
  • specifications
  • construction details
  • oversee less senior staff if required

This is, of course, very important, but if you are looking for more, this opportunity would be one of the best available.
Any technician within this practice has the opportunity to play a much more involving part in the creation of great buildings. From client briefs & concepts, right through to site involvement, project group participation, site involvement and final delivery, you will have the chance, not only to gain broader experience, but possible, to find your future niche.

This is practice known not only for the calibre of it's designs, but for the fact that technicians have greater scope of work, responsibility and influence than most practices.
With the Christchurch rebuild kicking off in earnest as you read this, the firm, already a major player, will be expanding. With growth comes opportunity and for you, this means a more stimulating, career-enhancing and rewarding role.
So.. who are they looking for?

  1. A trained and experienced Architectural Technician with the proven ability to ensure designs are well planned, comprehensive, effective and efficient.
  1. Someone who understands from first hand experience the demands of design for a commercial client: - timeliness / buildability / compliance / continuity.
  1. A person with experience in liaising at a commercial level with the many parties involved in determining the design, delivering the right documentation and following through to correct delivery on site.

We would expect most suitable candidates to have:

  • 5 years plus of professional practice experience
  • typically at least 2 good years in commercial architecture within a similar environment to that of New Zealand.
  • advanced CAD skills
  • An in depth knowledge of the NZ Building Code (or very similar)
On offer is a position with one of the best Architectural firms in the emerging city scene.
