Anderselite are currently working with a Gloucestershire based practice who are looking for an Architect with extra care experience.
They have been working in the Extra Care sector since the concept of Residential Care/Sheltered Housing changed to offer an alternative way of living for older people, providing independent living supported by care. Since then, they have completed a number of Extra Care projects across the country for Housing Associations, Local Councils and more recently Third Party Funders. Their experience ranges from small Extra Care homes with limited communal facilities to full retirement villages with over a hundred units.

They have completed many forms of specialist training over the years and therefore can offer expertise in the design for residents with dementia and other care needs.

They have also trained our staff in the use of BIM (Building Information Modelling) which will be required to be used on all Government funded projects from 2016. The 3D model is to promote collaborative working to improve construction efficiency. They have decided to implement this improvement now on our current projects way in advance of the 2016 deadline. Their experience also includes the design of Respite Care, Intermediate Care and Residential Care facilities.

For this role you will also have good client presentation experience, design, job running and leadership skills. You will benefit from progression, training, development and a competitive salary and benefits package.
