Gary B. Coursey & Associates, Architects
2002-present: Vice President
The position requires the management of as many as six office staff including five project managers. I typically organize contracts, negotiate engineering contracts, review designs and construction drawings, schedule work load in the office and work with clients to attain goals. Although this position is primarily a management position I typically am involved with the projects in the office and frequently design, draft and manage the construction.
1998-2002: Project ManagerThe scope of the position required the management of the day to day operations of specific projects. Services included the design of the project interaction with the clients and engineers for completion of the phases of the design under the contract. Supervision was by both the architect of record and the office project architect who was also the Vice President of the company.
1994-1998: Associate Project Manager/Project ManagerThe position I held had a formal title of Project Manager for the smaller projects that were in the office and Associate Project Manager when a larger project needed support during the course of the design phases. Gary Coursey & Associates has a work program that allows interns, that are still in college which I was at this time, a position for flexibility with schedules, but also provided the necessary experience upon graduation from college.
Position draftsman: contract basis only. I was hired to convert shop playground modules, which the firm had been producing for over three years, into construction drawings to be used for patenting and production at other plants that they were preparing to open.
