I am highly interested in beginning a new position where I can apply my knowledge and experience in the multiple fields of Design, i.e. Sustainable Architecture, Interior Design, Sustainable Urban Planning & Design, Experienced Consultations, Project & Construction Management, etc.

As a Project Designer & Manager with David Forbes Hibbert, AIA, I have managed design and construction of over 25,000sqft built Office Interiors & Retail; 9,000sqft of built Hospitality; and 3,000sqft of built Single Family Residential programs. Additionally, I have leadership and management experience in complex building designs, including a 9,000sqft (Hospitality) Historic Renovation within Santa Monica. I have managed the production of Construction Documents and Details, including Detail Revisions. I have managed coordination with project consultants, project coordination and project schedules.

This Project Designer position has presented to me a wide array of responsibility. Responsibilities include LEED project administration, project management, construction administration, as well as supervision of the development of project drawings at various phases. My daily duties include LEED feasibility studies, construction site visits, detail revisions, construction documents, design development, product specifications, etc. Simultaneously, I co-represent the “green” voice of our firm in all of our current developing projects. Our small group focus, (2-person team maximum), has allowed my experience to become multi-faceted as well as my strong work ethic to thrive.

Feel free to consider me for any openings that you may have at this time. Additionally, you may contact me at the number and email address listed above. I look forward to meeting with you soon.

Sincerely,

Christopher C. Coates, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+C
