About 

Greetings,

My name is Levon Farra and for the past several years I have been a Job Captain on High-End Custom Residential projects and the city processes.  I have experience in overseeing projects from early design phase through construction and have been involved in a variety of international and domestic projects including a LEED “Silver” rated new residence.   

The combination of my academic and professional work has allowed me to develop an understanding of all phases of design and associated technical issues (AutoCAD, collaborating with consultants & clients, dealing with local municipalities, knowledge of building codes and project coordination).  It has also provided me with an eye for detail, the ability to work independently & multi-task, a strong foundation in professional practice, organizational & management skills.

Please feel free to contact me by email levonf@gmail.com

Thank you for your time in review of this material and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Levon Farra
