Website Govan Associates
Architectural/Construction Consultant (7-15 years of experience)
Govan Associates is an architectural firm specializing in construction consulting and building forensics. For experienced candidates who enjoy the technical aspects of design and construction, we have a position available in our Walnut Creek or San Jose office.
Candidates should have a good working knowledge of construction, building assemblies, and building codes. They should have experience in construction document review and contract administration, and they must be able to communicate with clients, vendors, contractors, and sub-consultants. Attention to detail and “thinking outside the box” is critical. Candidates should be computer literate and have experience with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, and AutoCAD. Photoshop, InDesign, and similar program proficiencies are pluses.
You will be working directly for a Principal but will be expected to be well organized and self-motivated. Job duties will include document, contract, and construction drawing review; building investigation and intrusive testing; and data reduction, organization, and presentation. Site visits and local travel are part of the work. Occasional longer distance travel may also be required.
An architectural degree is desired; however, construction and engineering backgrounds will also be highly considered. We provide a competitive salary, a 401K program, profit sharing, and medical.
