Position Summary:

The successful candidate will be placed within the Directorate of Public Works (DPW) at the United States Military Academy (USMA) to augment the staff working there. Given that the USMA is much like a large civilian university, with many residential dormitories (barracks), academic training facilities, laboratories, fitness and recreation facilities, the successful candidate must have experience working on large campuses in facility master planning and/or design roles.

The selected Architect/Campus Planner will be assisting in charrette participation, schematic reviews, design reviews, and campus master planning efforts. He or she will be reviewing A/E designs for compliance with USMA Master plan, DPW's Engineering Planning Standard (EPS), and all other federal and state regulations and codes, including USDOI standards for historic preservation and SHPO consultation.

Services will be obtained by the government via an initial short (~ 4-month) task order followed by another 6-month base task order and 6-month option task order the government may exercise.

This will be the same FTE contract as the existing (4) contractors.

An architect with experience possibly in university facility design.

Would prefer to have a licensed architect with minimum 5-7 years' experience.

If you have resumes for AICP would love to see them.
