Are you a motivated and creative Landscape Architect looking for a comfortable and flexible team environment in which to showcase your skills? Do you appreciate small town, rural environments and places of destination? The SKA team is looking for an intermediate-level Landscape Architect to work with, largely as a project manager, dedicated to overseeing general project delivery, and capable of all aspects of production and client liaison.
Rurally located on a farm property close to Belwood (30 minutes north of Guelph), SKA has been providing professional design, landscape architecture and planning services to rural community and amenity landscapes for close to two decades. Much of our work takes place in rural areas including small towns and settlement areas typically situated in terrific locations, having an interesting array of cultural and natural assets, and at times considered ‘high demand’ destinations. We are celebrated as Ontario’s pragmatic, rural design/planning firm with a specific understanding of rural systems and its various communities.
SKA is an intimately sized firm of engaging professionals who are ambitious, out-going, community-minded individuals; we currently support a studio staff of five. The success of the firm is evident in the continued new and repeat engagements with Ontario’s rural communities.
While we perform in all areas of landscape and site design, including preparation of site inventories, design development, presentation materials, construction document preparation and contract administration – we are also sought continually for our community consultation and facilitated workshop services. The SKA team seeks someone who prides themselves in the value of quality work for and the championing of, smaller communities and rural settings – these include their main streets, parks and leisure service facilities, community commemorative, memorial and civic spaces, their community’s wayfinding infrastructure, and natural areas.
The ideal candidate will be a team player, good communicator (verbal, written, graphic), and has demonstrated design/planning versatility – likely having, yet not limited to, 5 years’ experience and OALA Full Membership (with seal). You will be an individual who is rarely idle, works well in both team and independent capacities, at times, with minimal supervision. Preference is to have a self-motivated individual with experience in overseeing team members, managing efficient project delivery, and meeting deadlines. Proficiency with AutoCAD, Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and SketchUp is required. Plant identification capacity will be necessary. A driver’s license is required.
