Junior Architects contribute to and support architectural projects. They help prepare designs, complete construction documents, write up building plans and assist in the presentation of materials.
A Junior Architect works under the direct supervision of an Architect or Lead Designer with the goal of eventually moving up to that position with experience. The work is very collaborative in nature. They work for architecture and engineering companies and most of their work is done in an office setting, although they occasionally visit construction sites as well. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the field for Architects in general will grow roughly 7 percent over the next ten years, which is about average.
Collaborate on Design Projects
The Junior Architect will help plan and design buildings along with a team of Architects. They brainstorm project ideas, complete design drawings in AutoCAD and assist in reviewing project proposals, remaining a part of the process from conception through development.
Junior Architects complete and file much of the paperwork that is involved in the design process. They create proposals and complete construction paperwork for buildings. In order to ensure that projects follow legal specifications and company procedures, they ensure all required documents and paperwork are submitted before the construction process is started.
Communicate with Involved Parties
It is important that the Junior Architect maintains communication with all parties involved in the project. They communicate with contractors to monitor the progress of a project, and they are sometimes responsible for communicating with clients as well, noting their requests, answering their questions and sending them project updates.
