Company: We are a architectural services firm servicing retail and hospitality customers across North America. We are growing our Field Team to keep up with newly introduced customers and a growing project load in 2017.
The Successful Candidate: Our ideal fit is a self motivated, detail oriented, clear communicator who thrives in changing environments. Quality is our company’s main objective, so ensuring every detail of our project documentation and communication is accurate and clearly understood is a key success factor. Travel is required in this position, so you must be willing and able to travel to project locations locally, regionally and even across Canada on short notice. If you value being part of a connected team, want to be hand’s on, and are skilled and interested in architecture & construction, this position is for you.
The Job: A ‘Building Surveyor’, known at DedON as a Field Agent, is responsible for investigating and documenting existing building conditions. A Field Agent utilizes an AutoCAD & Revit loaded laptop and their laser measuring device to document as-built conditions within active retail, restaurant, hotel and commercial properties. They also investigate exterior walls, flat roofs, structure, MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) to produce a comprehensive package of building information. The Field Agent is connected and supported by a team that provides clear instructions, in-field guidance and specific improvement feedback. Regular local, regional or national travel is a requirement of the job, but appeals to those who love architecture but don’t want the routine of sitting at a desk. This position is hands-on architecture in the real world.
