236 Arquitectos, Oporto, PT, Project Manager

During my time as Project Manager with ‘236 Arquitectos’, I was able to gain experience in different project phases. From the schematic design to Contract Administration during the construction process, I have experience in construction detailing and dealt with the inherent construction documents.
In this role, I demonstrated close client relationships and an ability to quickly develop a structured project brief suited to their needs. As part of this process I undertake a thorough investigation of the site context. I possess a creative, yet realistic, view to develop the projects’ concept, have all the skills in AutoCAD software to draw the necessary schematics, as well as a very skilled ability to build models for study and communication tools. I have the confidence and knowledge necessary to lead meetings with engineers and clients alike, the ability to coordinate various criteria and intertwining them with architecture. I have experience in handling all the bureaucratic documents required to have the project licensed by the proper authorities. I always seek to find new constructive solutions, promoting meetings with the companies that may provide the vital building materials. I have proficient coordination skills on site, as well as a resourceful background that helps to solve any problems that may arise during construction.
