A growing Buckinghamshire firm specialising in project management and architectural design is seeking an Architectural Technician to join their busy team.
Our portfolio encompasses a diverse range of projects, particularly from the residential, educational and community sectors. The role of architectural technician is to develop designs and specifications, often to tight deadlines.
