Architectural Technologist Job Description

*Architectural technologists help ensure that construction projects become fully operational through providing design advice and selecting the best technology, tools and materials.

*They can also manage a construction project.

*Architectural technology is the science and technical aspects of architecture.

*Its practitioners work with architects and other building professionals, providing the link between concept and construction.

*While architects focus on the design and ‘philosophy’ of buildings, architectural technologists are more concerned with the technical application of these principles to produce fully functioning structures.

Duties and Responsibilities

*Selecting the best materials and processes for the project, focusing on the functionality of the building.

*Surveying sites, identifying location benefits and environmental impacts.

*Analysing architectural plans and drawings, highlighting any possible risks or problems and making amendments using computer-aided design applications (CAD).

*Specifying the appropriate technology and tools to be used in the project and advising where this requires deviation from the initial design plans.

*Liaising with the architect, surveyors and other construction professionals to discuss the project brief.

*They may be involved in post-construction appraisal stages; handing the project over to the client or making sure the building is appropriately furnished and prepared to client specification.

*Most work is carried out in the office, although site visits are common.

Qualifications and Training

*Higher national diploma (HND) in architectural technology (or related).

Skills and Specifications

*A strong interest in architecture, mathematics, drawing and design, with excellent an eye for detail.

*Art and design skills to complement technical know-how.

*Strong communication and leadership skills.

*Competence in computer-aided design (CAD).

*An analytical mind with strong problem-solving ability.

*Strong leadership and organisation skills.

*The ability to work on your own initiative and as part of a team.

*Excellent communication skills, both written and oral.

*High levels of creativity, imagination and vision.

*The ability to work well under time and budget pressures.

*Enjoy working with your hands and a willingness to work outdoors.
