About 

Project Architect with seven years of experience in construction administration, technical detailing, code research, coordinating project consultants, developing BIM models and 3D renderings, producing architectural drawings and plans and generating detailed construction documents under strict deadlines. This experience includes work on large-scale academic and healthcare projects as well as residential, mixed-use, civic, and tenant improvement projects in all phases of project delivery. My past responsibilities included response to RFI's, reviews and responses to contractor change orders, site visits and issuance of field observation reports. I reviewed structural construction for architectural coordination, HVAC system layout locations, and installation of lighting fixtures and electrical equipment. I conducted site visits, final inspections and prepared punch lists and record drawings and reviewed and prepared certificates of substantial completion, occupancy, and final completion. I also participated in meetings with clients, consultants, contractors, public agencies and coordinated for client and agency review and approval.
