BOR Architecture, Yakima, WA, US, Junior /architect

With five years of experience at BOR Architecture, I assisted the architects with project organization, coordination, and bidding process, as well as, construction documentation, site observation, punch lists, and construction administration. I have had considerable experience using AutoCAD Architectural 2010, Photoshop, SketchUp, and Revit trained, as well as, basic knowledge of Microstation. Part of my duties as a junior architect has been to coordinate with the trades during the design process, as well as, field observations. In addition, I only have a few experience areas remaining to complete the IDP process with NCARB.
