A bit about what you’d be doing

Sell a compelling view of the final look of the project - manage this within the budget of the project. Run design workshops with the team agree the final look and feel for the pitch so you know what you are working towards.

Build the client relationship. Spend enough time to understand their needs but manage change so the bid scope can be defined and priced.

Create strong design concepts that met the client’s brief, workplace strategy and manage aspirations.

Attend progress meetings across and design workshops. Stay on top of both architectural and services elements to ensure the final build fits together.

Is the quality of the build reflective of what we have designed? Walk the site regularly to check on the quality of the build and finish and make sure it matches the design.
