Job Captains must have a degree in Architecture plus at least 5 years’ experience and are ideally working towards obtaining your license though not required. You should have a strong understanding of construction documentation and how different systems interact and how changes impact other parts of the project.

We only want to work with people who strive to learn and who support the growth of others. Current Revit experience is a must, proficiency with Microsoft Office products preferred.
