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 for two days per week building up to 3 – 4 days as activity on site increases. The project is expected to be on site for about 15 – 18 months and there is the possibility that we will also require Site Architect services on other projects during and also beyond this time. 


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 client, the various contractors on site, and the consultant team will require you to be a very effective communicator. 


The Site Architect will act as the conduit for information between site and the Project Lead 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. 


To be successful in this role, a minimum of ten years’ general experience along with evidence of a substantial involvement in site observation is essential, this would ideally include residential apartment projects.  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.  CAD experience (preferably ArchiCAD) is also a strong advantage.
