I am a recent graduate having earned my Master's Degree from the University of Kansas. I have specialized in Design-Build projects including my most recent project, an education building built for Johnson County Community College and completed in June 2012. I am looking for employment as an entry-level architect while aiming for eventual certification.
Studio 804, Inc, Lawrence, KS, Architect
Studio 804 involved the completion of a building from the beginning of architectural design to the end of construction as a Design/Build studio. My duties and work include schematic design, design development, construction documentation, construction administration, construction labor, software and hardware troubleshooting, communications, and contracting. I specialized in site and civil design of the building, but the building as a whole was a collaborative process which included everyone.
