  • Prepare specifications and contribute to the production of drawings for construction documents.
  • Be proficient in the use of Revit to model the building elements that you design.
  • Periodically serve projects during construction by visiting construction sites to inspect work, review contractor submittals to ensure they meet design intent, and address construction issues.
  • Participate in assessments of existing structures on occasion.
  • Contribute to writing technical memos and reports on occasion.
  • Actively participate in multi-discipline team meetings, design charettes, client review workshops, and construction meetings.
