An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Design Manager with a solid background in commercial/office tower projects based out of our Sydney Head Office. You will work on high profile commercial, residential and mixed use development projects, to name a few: Macquarie Park, Walker Street and Piccadilly Tower.
To be considered for the role, you must be a leader in the fields of architecture or design management, with a proven track record demonstrating thought leadership and excellence in design, both at the front end and through delivery. You must be both commercially astute, whilst drive creative and innovative property solutions. The successful candidate will have significant experience in both creative design and technical delivery, with specific experience in office tower design, and have the ability to challenge design, add value, and ensure projects are positioned for commercial success.
An excellent knowledge of current and future workplace design, along with sustainability and wellness in the workplace, are essential, to ensure that commercial office projects are underpinned by excellence and are positioned well for today and into the future. Given the future of the workplace, and the merging of retail and amenity with the office, experience in mixed use precincts and projects is also required. Experience within other asset classes will also be highly beneficial.
You will be responsible for leading the design of the project, from initial creation of the design brief, through design excellence competitions (where required), through design development, and ultimately through the delivery of the project, to ensure the final product meets the initial vision and proposition.
You must be creative, agile, resilient and an excellent communicator and have experience working with stakeholders at all levels. You must have experience in managing internal and external teams and be able to manage design effectively to ensure projects are planned and delivered to be best in class.
You also will participate in setting the strategic direction for the business contributing to the business unit’s financial objectives for development projects, including project cost plans, design management, buildability, value management and risk management.
