Next Architecture is looking for a born leader.

An architect with a clear vision of the future of the industry. A principal to lead and grow our Calgary studio with integrity and purpose.

This position is based in Calgary, AB.

Being a diverse and inclusive workplace, we welcome applications from all qualified candidates regardless of any other defining factor. All candidates are considered based on merit alone. We are a team of highly competent generalists – no specialists or primadonnas, please.

Please apply with evidence you meet the following mandatory pre-qualification criteria:

  • 10-15 years of experience since being registered, with a mix of Commercial, Educational, Healthcare, Heritage, Multi-Family, and Mixed-Use projects.
  • Currently registered with Alberta Association of Architects (AAA), or proof of imminent reciprocity.
  • Demonstrated ability to work hands-on, using collaborative digital workflows (3D deliverables within Revit, and BIM360).

In addition, the ideal candidate will have the ability to:

  • Learn, adopt, and adapt quickly.
  • Use lean principles and critical thinking that challenges established practices to solve problems, drive action and expedite appropriate results.
  • Initiate and foster relationships with private and public sector clients, including business development, fee proposals, and full proposal submissions.
  • Lead a growing team on $50K-$50M projects from commencement to completion, including ownership of scope, timeline, and budget.
  • Fluently speak the technical language required to successfully navigate projects through the various requirements set out by clients, collaborators, applicable codes, and authorities having jurisdiction.
  • Assist clients and colleagues in a transition away from 2D content/deliverables and toward 3D and digital fabrication (dFAB).
  • Plan, organize, prioritize time, and communicate effectively.

We deliberately seek out colleagues that share our purpose and values, and that possess the necessary aptitude, attitude, and capacity for success. Please demonstrate why that’s you, and what you are going to bring to Next.
