The buildings that make up the landscape of our daily lives seem like permanent fixtures, fastened to a time and place. But what if that didn’t have to be true? What if our built environment — where we live, learn, play, and conduct business — carried us forward instead?
Our Buildings practice keeps people at its heart, recognizing that our shared journey forward is shaped by the meaningful and responsive places we design. From iconic designs to monumental groundbreakings, join us to bring transformational building solutions to life. Every day we apply our expertise, creativity, and passion to propel communities into the future—join us!
We seek someone who wants to grow their career remarkably. Canada’s North abounds with unique and significant challenges - extreme climate, very fine cultural and environmental sensitivities and the significant logistics challenge of delivering projects to smaller communities spread over a vast geographic area with limited transportation access.
These factors demand the highest levels of commitment and even ownership - of the design theses and of the design solutions. We need someone who sees the value of such a challenge. In return for this exciting opportunity, you will be challenged personally. You will need to open your mind to possibilities, use ‘good sense’ to understand the often unique design problems and then to create effective and implementable solutions to these design problems.
Your Key Responsibilities
We will challenge you to use your initiative but, at the same time, to team with us to arrive at best designs. We are looking for someone who can help Team colleagues when they are in a tight corner but who, in turn, also knows when and how to ask for help. If you have these qualities, we will then discuss living in the remote North. Many have moved here and successfully make it their home. Again, it will be a test of how open you are - to new experiences, to a different style of community – to commit to a new community and neighbors because, in the North, we depend on each other to a different and greater extent than anywhere else.
If this resonates with you, show us you are someone who can embrace such a new way of living and working. We feel we are truly different if not unique. How unique can you be?
Your Capabilities and Credentials
- Confident direct inter-personal communications skills
- Well organized with a track record of successfully managing project schedules
- Design skills focused on creatively addressing a Client’s real project demands.
- AutoCAD proficiency, Revit training/experience and 3D design software
- Interest in and knowledge of "green" technology will be an asset
- Ability to work in a team environment
Education and Experience
A minimum of 6 or more years of professional experience in an Architectural practice. A minimum of 3 years demonstrated advancing experience of project management.
Experience of challenging design environments will be an asset.
