  • Create presentation 3D renders and drawings
  • Develop the full design alongside the client and the rest of the architectural team
  • Lead and manage the consent process / submissions
  • Play a key role in the ongoing design  / construction process optimisation.

So, this is a role with plenty of engagement with not just the architectural design, but with the whole construction process. We thought you'd like that.

It is this engineering + construction + architecture mix which is guaranteed to keep things interesting and rewarding.
