StructureCraft specializes in the design, fabrication and erection of timber structures incorporating steel, glass, concrete and other materials. We work with clients and architects to erect carefully detailed building and bridge structures that break new ground in sophistication, craftsmanship and quality. We thrive on new and challenging design concepts, materials and construction methods. StructureCraft enjoys pushing the boundaries in complex geometry, digital fabrication and in material testing and research, and our work in this regard has been recognised internationally, including numerous awards for innovation in timber construction.
Our new 50,000sqft office and fabrication facilities in Abbotsford, BC house a state-of-the-art new automated production line for Dowel Laminated Timber, a 100% wood mass timber panel.
StructureCraft is seeking 3D Designers / Drafters to join our design team to work on some of the largest mass timber projects across North America. Merit bonuses are given in profitable years, and are intended as a strong incentive to production, rewarding loyalty and contribution to the firm. The company benefits plan includes MSP, long term disability and extended health and dental benefits.
As we both fabricate and erect our designs, designers and detailers plays a key role in our organization, acting as the hub of design information from the architect and our own engineering team, and translating that information into 3D models, layout and shop drawings, and CNC files used for fabrication on our shop floor and erection on site.
New and challenging design concepts, materials and construction methods are what we thrive on – we enjoy pushing the boundaries in complex geometry, digital fabrication and in material testing and research, and our work in this regard has been recognised internationally.
We are looking for proactive and versatile team member(s) with a genuine interest in the many facets of our business to join our team. Candidates responsibilities will include the production of drawings and 3D models, sketching of design details, and coordination of each project design with both external design teams (Architect, Engineer) and internal project management / engineering teams. Working with our fabrication shop and site erection crews, you will ensure project designs are accurate, buildable, and erectable.
A minimum of 3-5 years detailing and 3D modelling experience (3D detailing experience is an asset), and knowledge in all aspects of building structures and materials is expected, along with the ability to translate architectural and structural drawings and specifications into accurate drawings for fabrication and erection. A working knowledge of industry codes, specifications, and standards is required. Candidates must supply work examples and references.
We use hsbCAD (an AutoCAD plugin) for solids modelling/detailing our mass timber projects, and Rhino/Grasshopper for conceptualising complex geometry. Candidates would be expected to become fluent in the software packages we use (prior experience in AutoCAD structural drafting is a strong asset).
We wish to emphasize this is a unique opportunity with a unique company. Our work involves care and detail, and your work will show similar qualities.
