The Residential Development industry is one of the busiest where the process of transforming an empty piece of land in a new, modern and thriving community is a long and complex one involving a variety of people in different roles. Before the process has even started companies have to work with Architects, Planners and Engineers to design and then work is ongoing with existing communities and local authorities to make sure the new homes sit in harmony with those already there.

As a Technical Coordinator you will be checking drawings; assist in answering queries from the site team; attend design team meetings; assisting with the production of layouts and technical reports and assisting with the appointment and management of external consultants.
As an Architectural Technician either within an Architectural Practice or In-House Design team you will be responsible for the Architectural design from concept to completion producing technical drawings using AutoCAD; coordinating with the design team; attending and chairing design team meetings to ensure the production of technical information is progressing and liaising with subcontractors.
