Project Architect


LBA are on the look-out for a Project Architect with at least 3 years post part-3 experience to join our growing team.

We’re searching for a talented, forward-thinking Project Architect with a proven history of exceptional design and technical experience to join our fantastic team. The role would primarily involve delivery of varying scales of residential and commercial projects, leading a small team from inception through to handover, with the ability to produce technical packages to a very high level independently.

We’ve put our heads together to dream up our ideal new team member:
Friendly, motivated, creative, out-of-the-box problem-solver
Creativity and design led skills with a commercial reality
Exceptional technical knowledge and ability to produce technical packages
Front end project running & delivery experience
Knowledge and experience delivering a wide range of construction methods
BIM whizz (or on your way to being one!) – ideally in ArchiCAD
Someone who shares our team values...we will test you!

Please note that this role will involve some travel so a driving licence is essential.

What’s in it for you:

Lovely office in the West End of Edinburgh
Relaxed and friendly team who love to socialise
Lots of input in design and the running of the office
Support in professional and personal development
Competitive salary
Performance-based bonus
Up to 7% employer pension contribution
Group life cover

What’s it like to work at LBA?

We hold high standards and work in a way that means our clients love dealing with us and colleagues love working here. Our practice is thoughtfully balanced with a low turnover of staff.

We foster a unique company culture championing work-life balance, self-empowerment, personal development and mutual support. Not only do we want you to grow into this role, but we want this role to grow with you. Although we have a fair idea of the talents we’re looking for, we love to utilise our team’s unique skills that may not necessarily fall under their formal job title.

We don’t believe in classical management hierarchies and, instead, distribute authority among all colleagues. Regardless of experience, our team are supported in their creative ideas and we actively encourage input from all.

Our office has been growing since its inception 8 years ago, and as we prepare for the opening of our second studio in Kinross, we hope to find someone as excited as we are to join us on our journey. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing and progressive design studio with a huge focus on job satisfaction, and in return for your hard work we will invest in and develop you.
