We are seeking a full-time architectural intern, draftsman, or recently registered architect, to join our team. We are hoping for an applicant with a minimum of 3-5 years of practical experience. Applicants will assist project managers from early schematics through final construction documents. You will gain full exposure to all aspects of project delivery--from marketing and business development, through construction monitoring. We are particularly interested in someone with a strong residential background. You should have experience developing plans, elevations, and details for custom residences—not just copying standard details from a CAD library and assembling them into a permit set.
More seasoned applicants, with some project management experience, are also welcome. Perhaps you are ready for more independence. You should be able to take over projects and run with them on their own, provided you exhibit the appropriate abilities.
We use REVIT and AutoCAD--frequently both on a single project. Applicants should be able to produce detailed drawings working with these programs.
Applicant’s qualifications should include:
3-5 years of experience minimum
Architectural degree from an accredited School of Architecture, or
Drafting Certificate from a technical school plus a few years’ experience
Experience working in a professional setting.
Must be highly proficient in Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD
Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite, (including Photoshop and InDesign)
Excellent graphic and presentation skills as well as communication and organization skills
Must be capable of self-directed work as well as team interaction.
Must be highly motivated with good communication skills (we know everyone says this, but we mean it. If you run out of stuff to do and reflexively pick up your phone, go work for the government.)
The ideal team member should possess common sense with a good sense of humor and bowling skills.
Additional Salary Information: We offer competitive salaries with a full suite of benefits: medical, dental and disability paid by the firm; 401-K with employer match; three weeks of vacation/sick leave.
About Felder & Associates
Felder & Associates is located in Savannah, GA. The firm was created in 2012, as the result of a need that Brian Felder saw with architects needing to get back to the basics with the level and quality of service they provided. Our firm focuses on helping an owner find the right solution for their needs. Some of the parameters affecting your project are known at this point, while others have not yet been discovered. A project like yours requires a journey—and we think we are a good fit to help you through the discovery process.
The key to a successful project is a multi-faceted solution: how to creatively find a solution that is sensitive to the context; one that is sensitive to the needs of the user group; and one that meets the financial resources available to the owner. Our firm is comprised of eight employees. We are made of architects, designers, a preservationist, and young technologically-savvy practitioners. The high level of communication that has been established by our firm is a huge asset to our clients.
We strive in a diversity of projects ranging from rehabilitations to new construction. Our passion for architecture ranges from commerc...ial, industrial, preservation, residential and institutional. The structure of our firm allows us to follow projects we feel passionate about. We have designed churches, colleges, corporate offices, restaurants, manufacturing facilities and residences. Felder & Associates is committed to finding projects we love, establishing the right team to share our enthusiasm and working
hard for our clients. The majority of our business is from repeat clients that we have established long-term relationships with.
The firm is nationally connected in the American Institutes of Architects, the American Society of Interior Designers and the United States Green Building Council. Felder
& Associates is a member of the International Interior Design Association. In 2014, Felder & Associates received a historic preservation award from the Historic Savannah Foundation and the best architecture firm award from Savannah Magazine. Felder & Associates recently completed the Grey restaurant in the former Greyhound bus depot in the Savannah historic district, which won a State AIA award.
