18 Mar 2019

An exciting opportunity exists for a skilled and motivated Site Architect within our vibrant Architectural Practice. Studio Pacific Architecture has an established reputation for award winning urban design, architecture, interior projects, landscape and heritage.

We are looking for a Registered Architect who will be based in Auckland for the duration of the project, beginning as soon as possible. The position is initially part-time with the potential to build up close to a full-time role. The Site Architect will be responsible for undertaking site observation and providing hands-on guidance and effective technical design solutions to any issues encountered.  Liaison with the various contractors on site, the consultant team and project manager will require you to be a very effective communicator. The Site Architect will act as the conduit for information between site and the Project Architect who is based in our Wellington studio. We have a strong body of tools developed to assist in successful site observation services and the Site Architect will be required to incorporate these into their role on site. The project is expected to be on site for about 18 months or longer and there is the possibility that we will also require site architect services on other projects beyond this time.


To be successful in this role, a minimum of five to seven years’ general experience along with evidence of a substantial involvement in site observation is essential.  The ideal candidate will be a skilled communicator with excellent verbal and written communication skills and have sound technical knowledge and problem-solving skills. They will also need to be very conscientious with regards to site observation planning, execution and recording information. We have a studio space in Auckland that the Site Architect can base themselves and work from when not visiting the site.  CAD experience (preferably ArchiCAD) is also a strong advantage.

We offer a flexible, inclusive and creative working environment with a variety of exciting projects, and career support and development for our people. Other benefits include health insurance, an endless coffee and fruit supply.
