Aviation Design Architect

Posted Monday, September 11






We are seeking Aviation Design Architects who are passionate about airport design and experienced in the planning and design of airport terminals with consideration to airport operations, passenger flow, and phasing. Candidates should be adept at integrating the ticketing, security, baggage handling, and sense of place objectives into an uplifting passenger-centric environment.

Candidates must be graduates of accredited architecture programs, licensed with 10-15 years of experience and a diverse knowledge of architecture principles, practice, and design detailing. Our aviation designers work in conjunction with lead designers, establishing design concepts, planning, laying-out, and creatively solving the functional and spatial requirements of airport projects.

Working in a collaborative team setting we value spirited designers who are – or strive to become – knowledgeable about planning best practices, the importance of integrating systems and infrastructure in design, who are interested in the integration of materials, assemblies, and detailing, and who have an ability to ground design ideas in broader knowledge and experience.

Aviation designer involvement continues throughout all the project phases to develop and detail the design. Excellent communication skills and the effective use of graphic and visualization tools are essential.
