Critical Facilities are becoming more diverse as technology advances, creating a market shift. Hyperscale users and increased demand have turned data into the new utility, making quicker, leaner facilities a must. Gensler’s wide berth of expertise in multiple practice areas gives our
practice a unique edge. For example, a deep bench of experts in both Critical Facilities and Healthcare can deliver the ultimate data center for a healthcare provider.
Beyond data centers, our Critical Facilities team delivers high-performance projects for research, supercomputing, command and control centers, SCIFs, distribution and logistics, high-tech manufacturing, and various other technology-rich project types.
As a Gensler Technical Designer, you will collaborate with our design team to develop innovative design solutions as well as coordinate the design through the construction documentation phase of a project. You will be successful because you already know how to translate an architect's sketches and documents into realized 2D/3D models and images, and can research artistic and/or technical issues when they arise. You will leverage your technical acumen and Revit skills to drive client projects from concept through build in a collaborative team. Your role is critical in the design and delivery of world-class Data Centers and other high-performance technology-rich projects. Your work ethic and dedication to problem solving, combined with our commitment to collaboration and mentoring, makes Gensler the perfect place to further your career.
