A Great Career for a Director of Architecture

If you or someone you know is a trained Architect in the Washington DC area with experience in residential design build projects and a passion for delivering heroic customer service and the highest quality results, then we should talk! We have a great opportunity for a residential designer who is highly motivated, an expert in the design build process, skilled at leading a team, and looking to build a rewarding career.

The Director of Architecture is ultimately accountable for the design, drawings, and permitting of all projects designed in house. For projects designed with outside partners, the Residential Remodeling Architect will need to be involved to monitor for and potentially contribute to consistency and assurance that BOWA’s best practices are followed. The Residential Remodeling Architect is responsible for managing and coaching the Design Team while ensuring their performance and work product. The Director of Architecture and Design Team work closely with the Sales Team as they move clients through the design process and into construction.
