Job Published: 17 days ago
  • Commercial design/project planning knowledge
  • High rise apartment projects
  • Role spans design, documentation, tender preparation

Opportunity to try something different and expand your skillset

This role is responsible for organising and preparing tenders for design and build jobs and therefore applicants need to be familiar with at least what is required, eg what consultant input is required etc. on successful tenders.

The role will then go on to manage all documentation for building consent and construction via external consultants and / or in house designers.

We are looking for someone with some commercial design / project planning knowledge or experience as most of the design and build jobs are high rise apartments of 3-5 levels.  This could get higher therefore the construction systems and processes are different to single level housing.

This role could suit a senior technician with LBP2 or an Architect who is keen to step out from the generic industry role and lead a busy team, plan project documentation through to construction starts and be able to answer high level design queries.

Ideally you will be Revit savvy, however AutoCAD will suffice. You feel confident working on a high volume of work at varying stages, eg: design stage, with Council or under construction; and you can make a call to answer design queries from Council and site. The time frames are often tight so you must be time and budget savvy.

This will suit a person who is based in North Auckland (or happy to travel) and has been holding out for an opportunity close to home. Work life balance is encouraged here and excessive overtime is discouraged.

Generous salary on offer | Fabulous team | Freedom to perform (no micro management) | Opportunities to explore career development throughout the Company
