I am currently looking for a senior architect leadership position. With my extensive diverse experience, I believe that your employment ad for an Interior Project Architect position would support this goal.
My extensive experience allows me the ability to easily lead and contribute to the design excellence and success of a project. I can offer design and technical leadership with the building components and interior design solutions, including all engineering aspects of a facility design from Civil, Structural, MEP and Technology. I am well versed in current building codes and can competently resolve code related issues. One of my strengths is envisioning 3-D solutions to complex issues allowing me to foresee conflicts early on in the design, and resolve them before they become an issue later on or during construction; through creative, design conscious solutions; complementing the design intent, maintain moisture integrity and permanence of the facility.
As I have stated, my Architectural background is extensive, including multiple market sectors and project types. I have successfully led projects from renovations through multi-million dollar “green-field” site projects, including Healthcare, Aviation, Correctional, Corporate/Financial, Educational (K-12), University Teaching facilities, Liturgical, Sports venues, Hotel and Hospitality. I have managed project related efforts in marketing, programming, design, forensic building evaluations, and production, quality control, and construction administration efforts. I have a strong creative design sense and building tectonics background and have directed the building envelope architectural side of the practice at my former firm in Tampa for the last five years, developing specifications and exterior building systems to protect facility designs from moisture and high wind pressures. I have also been involved with building commissioning efforts at the University of Florida, on new construction and forensic evaluations on existing facilities.
I presently have homes east of Tampa, Florida and north of Atlanta, Georgia, allowing me opportunities to work from either location easily. I am a Registered Architect in Georgia since 1988, and have been in the Architectural and Construction vocation for 40 years. My attached resume identifies my project experience and I have a related portfolio of project images available that I can share, some of which I have attached. I am a very motivated design focused individual, able to manage large projects and design or production teams. Although it’s been a couple years, I have AutoCAD experience. I am also knowledgeable of Revit and its capabilities, but have not personally drawn with this software. My passion is art and well-designed quality contemporary architecture. I would enjoy the opportunity and know that I can increase your profitability and lessen your liability by contributing to a quality design team.
My salary range and benefit requirements are negotiable.
Please feel free to contact the professional references listed in my resume.
Please let me know if there are any questions or additional information you might need.
I can make myself available to fit your schedule.
Thank you in advance for your time to consider my request.
