Timber Frame Designer

Our design department is looking for a timber frame designer with solid AutoCAD skills and an eagerness to be involved in all aspects of timber frame design, fabrication, and erection. The job involves conceptual design of timber frame and glulam structures, preparation of project quotes using proprietary estimating tools, collaborating with professional engineers in the preparation of sealed structural drawings, and execution of shop drawings for architect/client review and internal manufacturing use. After a period of training, the designer will also begin to assume project management duties, including creating material lists and coordinating purchasing of raw materials, site visits and surveys, on-site assistance with erection operations, checking layout of timbers and glulams, and many others.

The successful candidate/employee will possess above all a keen attention to detail and a dedication to craftsmanship. Ideally, he or she will also possess a few years of timber framing experience, and a willingness to work in the shop and in the field as the projects or our work load require. Demonstrated skill with AutoCAD software as well as Microsoft Office products is required.

We offer competitive hourly pay and benefits package based on experience, holiday pay, paid vacation based on length of service, as well as eligibility for the non-contributory company retirement and stock transfer programs after one year. Please send your cover letter and résumé to tdiener@lancotf.com.
