Job Description:

The Freelance Draftsperson role is a critical component of the design development and documentation process, responsible for helping produce architectural drawing sets that accurately represent client-approved, rendered conceptual designs.

The role will work closely with Designers, Design Directors, and the Drafting Production Manager to translate a 3D design concept into 2D plans, sections, elevations, detail drawings, and relevant schedules/inventories.

A qualified candidate should be detail oriented, collaborative, familiar with conventional drafting standards, and efficient.

Primary Job Functions:

  • Under the direction of the Drafting Production Manager, produce accurate 2D Autocad drawings that represent the design intent rendered in 3D by the design staff.
  • Develop and populate material schedules and equipment inventories for furniture and audio/visual equipment.
  • Adhere to Clickspring’s established representational standards guided by the Drafting Production Manager, which include typical line-weights, drawing organization and page layout, layer management, CAD file preparation, and file storage and distribution protocols.
  • Review and revise drawings under the direction of others through a regular process of “redlining.”
  • Manage time spent on projects as needed to successfully meet project budget and schedule requirements

Secondary Job Functions:

  • Use knowledge of materials and methods of construction to create realistic and relevant solutions that adhere to the intent of the project’s design
  • Encourage and participate in a “just ask if you don’t know” approach to problem prevention

Essential Skills:

  • Ability to read and comprehend building plans, shop drawings, and construction documents
  • Basic understanding of materials and methods of construction
  • Proficiency with AutoCAD and Microsoft Word and Excel
  • Proficiency in developing legible 2D drawings that utilize conventional architectural annotation styles.
  • Accuracy and attention to detail
