Sprunt, London, GB, Senior Architect

I am working at Sprunt. My role is “Senior Architect” which I full fill writing NBS documents, producing construction packages on CAD, overseeing the work of a number of project architects, supporting them when necessary, mostly if situations arise with site or statutory approval matters and I still get involved in design.
Of course my job also implies a number of management roles such as meeting with client and other consultants, dealing with statutory authorities, chairing meetings, checking that office procedures are observed etc.
