Join StructureCraft as a Computational Designer - Vancouver, Canada

StructureCraft is expanding its team of design-fab specialists

StructureCraft is seeking an intermediate to senior level designer with 3-5+ years experience in computational design to join our team in Vancouver, BC.

We design and build some of the most interesting and creative timber structures throughout North America.

We work closely with architects, engineers, owners and general contractors to design, fabricate and construct carefully detailed structures in timber, steel, glass, concrete and other materials.

As we are a team of structural engineers, designers and craftsmen, we enjoy challenges which break new ground in sophistication and quality with new and challenging design concepts, complex geometry, materials and construction methods.  In our workshop we often conduct full-scale structural testing and prototyping of our structures and connection ideas.

Our extensive experience with wood has won numerous international awards for innovation in timber design and construction.  Our 30,000 sq.ft design office and fabrication facility is located in Vancouver, BC.

Your Responsibilities:

  • 3D modeling from conceptual phase through to fabrication, assemblies and installation
  • Design for fabrication – we build everything we design, so prototyping and close interaction with shop floor and CNC machines is critical
  • Creation of computer programs, scripts, and algorithms to automate and enable production of complex 3D models
  • Creation of fabrication drawings and CNC files for complex elements
  • Working with fabrication crews and CNC machines to ensure models are translated accurately into human- and machine-readable information
  • Production of detailed drawings for approval, engineering and production
  • Lead design coordination with external teams, engineers and contractors
  • Standardization of connections, fasteners & fabrication techniques to improve production efficiency
  • Continual improvement of design & drafting process to improve efficiency and reduce design cycle times
  • Manage and prioritize tasks to meet scheduled deadlines
  • Maintaining and grow construction industry technical knowledge

Position Requirements:

  • A bachelors or masters’ degree in architecture
  • Minimum 5 years experience 3D modelling geometrically complex structures in architectural, structural or industrial design, including minimum 5 years 3D Modelling and scripting experience in the Rhino 3D and Grasshopper environments.
  • Minimum 5 years experience computer programming in C#,, Python, or equivalent in a professional working environment.  Demonstrated ability to write object oriented programs and devise algorithms to solve complex geometrical problems on real construction projects.
  • Demonstrated experience in digital fabrication through built projects, showing an understanding of design, modelling, detailing, CNC machining, and assembly techniques required to construct complex forms
  • Proficient in using Rhino and Grasshopper with significant experience using algorithmic modelling and computational design techniques on building structures
  • Great understanding of design and construction sequence concepts
  • Experience organizing design work and managing shifting priorities
  • Experience interfacing with CNC machines would be a bonus
  • English language is required.

Who will you be working with?

You will be working with many of our staff, but reporting to our Engineer/3D Manager, Lucas Epp.

When will you start?

Within the next 1 to 3 months.
