Aleck Wilson Architects is a highly regarded small firm seeking a talented and design oriented Project Architect / Manager with residential experience. For the past 19 years, our firm has created beautifully designed and detailed single-family residences throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area. With a devoted and growing client base, we are looking to add a dynamic and well-rounded individual to our team of 6-8 people. We focus on the direct relationship of design, detail and construction; and continuity of design value through all four phases of architecture. See www.aleckwilsonarchitects.com for more details.
Within our small studio, the Project Architect/Manager will have both design and management responsibilities and therefore successful candidates tend to be well-rounded individuals who enjoy variety in their work. The PA/PM will typically assist on a few projects as the main contact for consultants and clients, depending on the project, and lead the in-house team in terms of workload, schedule and budget. We also look for individual strengths and how these might work well to compliment the current staff and offer opportunities for leadership.
Characteristics sought - Exceptional design abilities - Strong management skills of self and a small team - Excellent communication skills with principal, peers, consultants, contractors and especially clients - Ability to multitask on several projects at one time - Willingness to take on various roles typical of a small firm - Proven mentorship capabilities
