The Master Architect Model

Centuries ago, architects were responsible for the entire process of building creation.They involved themselves not only in the design of the building, but also the design of the interior components. In some cases, this included everything from furniture to lighting fixtures and custom flooring design.

The Master Architect model made sense then and it makes sense today, especially with the advent of advanced digital modeling software.Today, Architecttura is able to digitally create virtual buildings in unprecedented detail – so detailed that we are able to precisely estimate material needs, standard labour costs, millwork and much more. Our ability to forecast major cost items allows us to negotiate and manage project costs within much tighter budgets.

By overseeing every aspect of design and construction, we ensure that the finished building faithfully reflects the original design intent, is built in a more streamlined way, and ultimately saves you money.

How managing construction ensures a better build. Read more

As your architects, we understand exactly what you expect from your building. We know why certain design decisions were made. We know what’s important to you. That makes us uniquely qualified to guide the construction process – to make absolutely sure that the final product remains true to your goals and your vision.

It also helps to have a single, intimately informed source of authority for all construction decisions. A one-stop-shop saves time, money and reduces conflicts. It reduces the stress inherent in any building project and gives you peace of mind, knowing that your project is being managed by the people who know it best.

Architecttura’s sister organization, Parattura, specializes in custom fabrication of parametric building components and systems. This close relationship allows our designers to create radically new, paradigm-shifting components that are optimized for efficient implementation.

The Seven Disciplines of
Our Master Architect Model

Life Cycle Management Architectural Design Integrated Engineering Construction Management Parametric Design & Fabrication Urban Planning Interior Design

As Master Architects, Architecttura offers expertise in seven key disciplines that, together, span the entire scope and life cycle of your project. It’s all built upon the unprecedented detail of our DeepDesign 4D modelling. Using advanced technology in game-changing ways is how we build intelligence into everything we do.

Opportunity for a Mechanical Engineer

Architecttura has an immediate opening for a full-time Mechanical (HVAC) Engineer.

We are seeking a professional engineer with 15+ years of experience to manage a wide variety of projects from the initial design phase through to the on-site contract administration as it relates to Mechanical Engineering involving HVAC and plumbing design. Candidates must have experience in the design of mechanical building systems design for clients in educational, commercial, industrial, and healthcare markets and shall be able to prepare mechanical and plumbing working drawings, construction details and specifications within a BIM model, in a collaborative and team environment. The candidate should be self-motivated, sincere, conscientious and detail-oriented with strong communication skills in a professional manner. Candidates, in addition to participating in business development activities, should have sound management skills and enjoy working on technical aspects of building design projects in a fast-paced and supportive environment within a multi-discipline team. Must be highly experienced with Revit, BIM and Autocad software (latest edition), and proficient with MS Office productivity software. A senior level of familiarity with the Ontario Building Code and knowledge of building science and construction detailing as it relates to specifically, HVAC, plumbing, fire safety, and hydronics will be an asset, along with a strong motivation for continual learning. A strong familiarity with green building design and energy modelling will also be an asset.  This position will lead to a senior management role with the capacity to lead and manage multiple projects in addition to eligibility for future partnership opportunity.
