Are you ready to take ownership of your career?

Intermediate Architectural Technician

Urban Homes is Hamilton’s most awarded ‘Registered Master Builder’. We love building relationships as much as we love building beautiful houses.

Due to an increase in business we wish to appoint another Architectural Technician. You will need to have at least 2-3 years NZ experience in producing residential Building Consent drawings.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Producing high quality Building Consent drawings and full council documentation from Concept Drawings
  • Working with Sales and Estimating teams to ensure Consent Documentation is aligned to client specifications and contract
  • Liaising with framing manufacturing and structural engineers to complete Consent Drawings and work through necessary follow ups until Building Consent is issued
  • Assist with producing Concept Drawings when and if required.

Essential to this role will be strong attention to detail and a high level of accuracy. Strong residential construction knowledge will be a must,  competent skills in ArchiCAD and a good knowledge of NZBC, NZ Standards and Acceptable Solutions.  Being a Licensed Registered Building Practitioner would be an advantage or the desire to become one.

You will be focused, driven, and a high achiever. You’ll have an uncluttered, simple approach to managing projects, and your impeccably high standards will mean you deliver excellence, every time.

You’ll be a naturally positive, warm and friendly person, with an awesome attitude and good banter. You’ll thrive in our hardworking, supportive team, and you’ll be an important contributor to our honest, caring, and fun environment.

For further details, please contact Lynn Power on 07 839 5570 EXT 215 or email, and if you wish to apply for this position attach your CV and cover letter to your email.
