About this role

This role will be focused on UK projects between 150,000 and 1 million square feet.

This role will be with the pre-construction team working closely with the development and project manager.  It is essential you have development experience and understand how to maximise square footage of floor plates.  You must have a strong business acumen, diplomacy and a proactive approach.  They work in a lean team with a collaborative vision to build a quality product for the end user, tenant or landlord. 

They have a flat hierarchy and value applicants who are strong decision makers, have a resourceful and solution-ready attitude.  This would suit an architect with a track record of increasing square footage and adding value.  Ideally you will already be in a client-side role with a track record of base builds; interior fit-out experience is a bonus.  

This firm has forged a niche in exceptionally well-designed commercial office space and builds, working with Tier 1 architects.  This will suit design or development managers who want more autonomy and ownership.  The firm will reward you with trust and decision making and a positive work culture.
