We believe that the way we work can add meaning and value to the world. That ideas inspire positive change. That coloring outside the lines can illuminate fresh perspectives. And that small details yield important realizations. Above all, we believe that collaboration is the best way forward.

Primary Responsibilities for Architectural Model Maker:

This position requires that an individual feel comfortable in a fast-paced environment; HDR's design philosophy seeks to embody our client's vision and in many ways the model shop is the œengine that drives our design process toward this goal.  We are always looking for talented craftsman that can take an idea, a sketch or a drawing and transform it into something provocative and inspiring.
The successful candidate for this position will collaborate with architectural design teams to plan and construct physical architectural models that support marketing pursuits and ongoing projects. These models are primarily made from laser cut acrylic (Plexiglas) and wood, and often include elements made with an in-house 3D printer and CNC machine; experience with 3D modeling software (Rhino, SketchUp) and AutoCAD is highly desirable.
Additional responsibilities range from performing minor maintenance on equipment, organizing and cleaning the shop and the careful packaging of models for shipment. Experience with model photography is also a plus.




Required Qualifications

The position requires a High School diploma and no less than 2 years experience in the field or in a related area. Familiarity with the methods and procedures of an architectural practice as well as those of a small carpentry shop will be required; the successful candidate will be asked to perform a variety of tasks, but will be given a fair degree of latitude in a convivial work environment.


Why HDRAt HDR, we know work isn't only about who you work for; it's also about what you do and how you do it. Led by the strength of our values and a culture shaped by employee ownership, we network with each other, build on each other's contributions, and collaborate together to make great things possible. When you join HDR, we give you license to do the same. We help you take charge of your career, giving you multiple growth opportunities along the way.
