Retrofit Designer | Leading Development Management company | London/Hybrid | Salary DOE
I am currently working with an award-winning Development Management company in London. They acquire sites to design, restore, and develop boutique residential homes and mixed-use buildings. Their approach is to allow both architecture and design visions to work in concert to create timeless buildings with an ever-growing focus on sustainability.

Day-to-day, the Designer will create design presentations, 3D models and visualizations, drafting reports, design detail packages, and specifications, working with the development department to facilitate efficient delivery of construction information, and prepare material sample boards. The Designer’s role requires working across high-end residential projects.
