This position is open until filled and subject to close without notice
In collaboration with the City Architect and Senior Landscape Architect, a Landscape Architect III will oversee the design and construction process for both new and revised City-funded landscape architecture projects. These projects can vary in size from small, maintenance-related improvements to new Park or Public Land projects with millions of dollars in construction. This position requires the ability to effectively communicate with End Users, Managers (typically City-staff) Landscape Architects, Engineers, General Contractors and Subcontractors to achieve desired outcomes. Most projects within the Engineering Division are designed using consultant Landscape Architect teams, though the Landscape Architect III may design smaller projects within the Division. Successful candidates will have a thorough knowledge of the design and construction industry, being able to guide the implementation of industry best practices into each project. The ideal candidate will be comfortable understanding, implementing, and managing contracts for both consultants and contractors. This is a professional position which requires the ability to manage multiple projects at once while managing and tracking each project budget independently. As the Engineering Division’s Project Representative, Landscape Architect III’s are essential in the pre-design, design, bidding, construction and close-out of City-funded landscape architecture projects and have a high degree of influence on a successful project. Within the Engineering Division, the Landscape Architect III position has growth potential to transition to Senior Landscape Architect.
