San Francisco Bay Area - Looking for a contract job captain

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am an architect in Oakland using Chief Architect x8. I am looking for someone with about 3 years of architectural experience to act as a job captain/drafter on a contract basis. My office specializes in ADU's (granny flats), additions, and remodeling projects. Currently I have projects in Vallejo, Sunnyvale, Danville, San Francisco and points in between.

 

You need to have your own x8 license and experience not just drafting in CA, but pulling together Construction Documents for projects in the Bay Area. You will need to be able to:

 

1) create models in CA of existing buildings (houses) and sites based on my field measurements and photos.

2) correct and revise my models of the proposed new work. I am particularly inept at creating roofs and terrain.

3) revise models of existing and new based on my sketches.

4) layout and create CDs for projects in California, particularly the Bay Area, with knowledge of Title 24 and Green Code requirements.

5) draft details based on your experience in Type V construction and my sketches.

 

This position is on a contract basis. You must have your own x8 license, and your own computer equipment. You will be working remotely. Project work will not be in a continual flow, but episodic in nature. You will be able to meet reasonable deadlines. Communication between us is key. 

 

Ideal candidate will have a professional architectural degree, at least 3 years experience working for architects, and be pursuing a license in architecture. 

 

If you are interested, please email me at dslocicero@gmail.com 

Please provide your resume in PDF format. DO NOT send any examples of your work at this time. No phone calls at this time.

 

Thanks for reading this far!

 

Cheers,

I am remodeling a home in Monterey and have it designed in Chief X8 but need someone to take the concept and moving it to framing detail for building permits.  

The home is a Post and Beam Adobe with 8 x 8 post and 12x8 beam.  It has Adobe that has failed between the Posts.  We need framing detail to replace the Adobe with 2x8 studs.  The home is built on slab so new PT plate under the  posts and new studs.

Chiefcarmeljohn, I'm not sure how I can help you. Your project is well outside of my geographic area for working.

Hi there, I'm new to Chief Architect using X9. Looking to collaborate with others from the Bay Area. I'm from Vallejo and interested in companies in the area that use Chief Architect. Here's a link to my website  http://tedvisaya.com/index.html

Would like to hook up with a company that needs a CAD Design specialist. I'm highly proficient with Solidworks and have been converting models from there to Chief. Let me know if anyone is interested. I can build models from spec sheets and insert them into Chief.

      Hello, 
       
      We are an exterior porcelain tile manufacturer looking for additional drafting services. We manufacturer exterior deck flooring and pedestal systems for residential & commercial rooftop decks, restaurants, pools, etc (mbricotiledecks.com). Our in house drafting staff is struggling to keep up with drafting requirements for our projects as our business continues to grow. We're interested in looking into freelance remote drafting services. The majority of drawings are fairly basic tile patterns in various exterior settings. Attached are a couple of examples. Please respond with hourly rate, example of work and any questions if interested. Thanks!

      Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
       

      I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
      I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files. 
      A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.
      Take a look at some of my recent design work in the Gallery
      Also, take a look at the extensive Free Content Thread and continued free content YouTube Series:

      Hi, 
      I have attached a couple of screenshots to best describe my problem
      Whenever I move the camera view, I get this sort of distort colouring on my walls?
      Any ideas what's causing this?
       
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I am using Chief Architect X8 on a Mac.
      I am having trouble with roof planes - I want to be able to change the baseline height but it keeps defaulting back and won't alter.
      Yet when I open the same file on another computer I can change it
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks

      Award winning kitchen design studio seeking a junior designer on a part time consulting basis to take on site measurements and initial drafting of kitchens.  Candidate will need to have on the ground presence in Lower Westchester New York at jobsite at least for measuring; will need to do site visits, measure spaces, and draft initial cut at kitchen designs and prepare 3D architect layout documents for client review using our studio templates.  Additional responsibilities are a possibility if candidate is interested, including client follow up work, interior design material selection and ordering, layout, etc.  I am flexible on job scope and happy to work with the right person to tailor the responsibilities.
