Job Description

The Architectural Drafter/Designer role is a highly technical role requiring extensive familiarity with design principles and computer-aided drafting technologies to ensure that drawings are accurate and present the necessary information for FINFROCK Construction, zoning and other approval bodies, including the client.

Work closely with architects and engineers to prepare detailed architectural drawings. Working from Conceptual/Schematic Designs, drafters use REVIT and BIM 360 software to prepare full-scale and detailed drawings. These drawings provide FINFROCK construction crews with information on materials and constructability.

Update and modify designs based on new information acquired through an internal Bluebeam quality control review or revisions at the request of a client.

Ensure coordination through all the documents while updating drawings.

Check drawings for accuracy and coordination prior to sending the drawings back to the Project Lead and Project Architect for final approval.

Opportunities to accompany architects and engineers to job sites prior to work starting and throughout the construction process.

Gather data and take measurements, verifying elements such as the elevation and surrounding area on initial site visits. On later site visits, ensure that Construction is adhering to the plans and specifications and report any discrepancies back to the Project Lead and Project Architect.

Provide detailed drawings of certain construction elements and assist in the answering of questions (RFI) that arise while Construction and subcontractors review the project documents and throughout the construction phase of the project.

Prepare additional drawings and answer questions under the supervision of the Project Architect.

Communicate with team members to ensure project accuracy.

Perform quality control checks on your own work and the work of your peers.
