We are looking for a highly organised and proactive Part 3 architect to be our eyes and ears on site for a one-off custom build home at a beautiful site near Shipley, West Sussex. Acting as site coordinator, this is a key role for the project, as the successful candidate will be the conduit between the office and site, ensuring that the home is built as designed and to the high standards expected. It is a challenging, varied and rewarding position which presents a rare opportunity to engage with a build from start to finish, using our cutting edge digitally enabled approach.

You will be working as part of the Facit Homes project team alongside our project leader (office based), contracts manager (office based), order manager (office based) and lead carpenter (site based) and will engage with the latest construction technology both in terms of digitally manufactured components and digital communication tools. Collectively the team will deliver yet another fantastic Facit Home, on time, on budget direct to the end user.

  • manage design information on site
  • track and report progress
  • assess subcontractors scope of works, report on omissions
  • inspect works in progress/completed and report
  • support the carpentry team and subcontractors
  • manage and report on deliveries
  • confirm dates with appointed subcontractors/suppliers
  • oversee completion of online timesheets for carpenters on site

Start date is March 2022.
