An opportunity to join a fast growing team as this small studio evolves. Douglas Strachan Architect is a thriving Architectural studio based in Dalkeith, just outside Edinburgh. Our outlook is based on providing high quality design to help people improve their environments; on domestic projects, small developments, and through our work with communities. Our approach is based on a collaborative studio atmosphere and a friendly and straightforward service. We are involved in an increasingly diverse range of projects and our team continues to evolve to deliver these.
As a small design-led studio, members of our team are involved throughout the project lifecycle. Their skills are complementary, enabling collaboration and individual professional development. Whilst the practice has established itself through high quality domestic projects, our workload continues to diversify. In order for the practice to continue evolving, we are therefore keen to add people with experience of delivering non-domestic projects. This is likely to be either a qualified Architect or an Architectural Technologist.
Essential to any new team member will of course be the appropriate qualification, as well as proficiency in AutoCad, SketchUp and Photoshop. It is important to share our passion for design and its communication, both graphically and in terms of helping clients through the design decision-making process. This would be substantiated with technical and contractual knowledge, in order to take projects through statutory consents and construction. Prior experience of doing so in-practice will be highly relevant to our consideration of applicants.
If you have the appropriate experience and skills and outlook, then we would love to hear from you with some examples of your work. An indication of availability to start, part-time or full-time availability and salary expectations would also be appreciated.
