Thaler Reilly Wilson Architecture & Preservation, LLP is a growing small-sized architectural firm specializing in the renovation, restoration, and adaptive reuse of existing and historic buildings. We are passionate about bringing new life to our architectural heritage and our historic communities.

Based in Albany, New York, TRW provides a friendly and fun work environment that is dedicated to ensuring all employees have a healthy work-life balance. Our team of professionals share similar interest in historic preservation and adaptive reuse. Our informal work environment fosters team-work, creativity, ambition and professional development. We strive to create a better workplace that is dynamic and rewarding. Join our team of talented professionals as we grow and take on new and exciting projects.   

We are looking to fill the following open positions:

Job Title:                 Project Manager

As our next Project Manager, you’ll be helping us plan and interpret various projects through all phases of development. This includes technical elements such as scheduling, budgets, as well as maintaining and updating the team and stakeholders on all the major changes that may occur.  The impact you’ll have is that we’ll be able to fulfill our clients' wishes and dreams with each project, in the timelines we forecast. We realize no project goes perfectly but the manner in which you prepare for contingencies will help ensure that we’re operating as smoothly as possible.

 

Every day, you’re going to be working in or around any or all of these elements:

  • You’ll LEAD the overall team working on assigned projects ensuring deadlines are kept, status updates are accurate, and related activities are on schedule.

  • Work with stakeholders to triage and create secondary action plans to get projects back on task

  • You’ll oversee the team’s design & development (concepts to final drawings), yours and your colleagues. This includes new designs, concepts as well as edits and changes requested by our clients or building code requirements

  • Monitor and manage the administrative aspects of construction projects (i.e. working with municipalities on permitting requests, completing forms, sitting in front of Planning boards, responding to questions from clients, town residents, and more.

  • Develop and maintain strong relationships with our clients and others in our industry (municipal, commercial development, construction, etc.)

  • Last but not least, ensuring all the I’s are dotted, and T’s are crossed on everything that you do

 

To THRIVE in this role, here’s what you’re going to need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Architecture or related field to apply well-founded concepts to our projects

  • 8-10 years of experience in the Architectural industry with medium to large projects

  • 5 years of direct project management experience (overseeing everything from soup to nuts) related to Architectural projects

  • A Leadership (not management) mindset (helping your colleagues and organization grow)

  • Proficiency using Revit, AutoCAD, as well as office and project management software (ie Word, Excel, Outlook, and MS Project)

 

Here’s the type of person who fits in with our team:

  • Someone who wants to work collaboratively with teammates. You might have something to teach or learn. We like to share.

  • Passion for Architecture

  • Looking for flexible work-life – i.e. hybrid work style or in office.

  • You need competitive benefits including paid time off, health insurance, and more

 

What are we like to work with? We’re collaborative and team-oriented. Yes, REALLY. Like the tide, we rise and fall together, so communication is key.  That’s why we establish clear objectives and expectations with each other and with our clients.  Does this sound like the type of environment you’re looking for?

 

We realize it’s hard to know everything about a person from just a resume, just as much as you realize it’s hard to know everything about what a company’s like off of a job post. Apply today. Let’s talk and see if we’re a good match for one another.
