Reviewing Architectural Documents
As a Designer/Consultant at W.J. Higgins & Associates, Inc. I worked closely with Architects, Owners, and Contractors from the Schematic Design Phase through Project Closeout. I am responsible for preparation of the project specific proposal including scope, costing and scheduling. During design phase activities, I meet with the design teams and contractors to work through project specific details to ensure a weather resistant healthy wall assembly that's both economical and constructible. Following the design activities, I regularly participate in the value engineering process and performance mockup testing and evaluation activities. Prior to construction onsite I will review the project specific shop drawings and submittals. Lessons learned in the mockup testing are applied when I conduct systematic field observation visits to review the installation techniques including workmanship. I continue to assist clientele with forensic investigations and litigation support which are project specific activities varying greatly in terms of involvement and duration.
The entry level position at Architectural Testing, Inc. included building test chambers and performing the onsite air, water and thermal testing on windows, curtain walls, and other fenestration assemblies across the Midwest. I was introduced to the Union Trades and learned how to navigate and negotiate with the trades as well as Owners, Architects and Contractors.
