BuildXDesign is led by Victoria Suen who brings over 10 years of experience in architecture, design and branding. Having worked for some of the world’s top architecture and design firms in Toronto, Vancouver and New York, Victoria now brings her expertise to local businesses and homeowners looking for strategic direction in the development of their spaces. The frameworks and processes used at BuildXDesign are grounded in one core principle: Finding your purpose and translating these beliefs into a memorable spatial design and experience.

Young, hungry & just excited to learn, grow and build together, the team at BuildXDesign is eager to continue building a unique company where they help real estate investors, work on their own projects & do larger commercial projects for amazing brands & companies.

BuildXDesign has partnered with a home renovations marketplace platform where its mission is to make home renovations simple, transparent and efficient for everyone. They’re building tools to provide homeowners with transparency throughout the entire renovation process while empowering them to make educated decisions every step of the way. BuildXDesign also helps general contractors be more efficient beyond the construction site by semi-automating their back office with a custom platform solution.

As one of their preferred partners in Architectural Design, BuildXDesign is looking to hire an Architectural Designer to support their partner’s growing design/renovation needs as they expand into the Toronto market!

This is a dynamic and exciting role as you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects! As the Architectural Designer, you’ll be responsible for designing multiple home renovation projects in the Greater Toronto Area, ranging in project scale from simple bathroom renovations to full home extensions and new builds. You will be responsible for generating as-built floor plans, new floor plans and 3D visualizations for the schematic design and detailed drawings for building permits and construction.

In addition, you may be involved with interior design services including the creation of mood boards, material selections, detailed plans and elevations, and the creation of finish schedules. As the business grows, you will be responsible for developing and implementing new operational processes to improve overall team efficiency.

  • Provide architectural design services for residential renovation projects:
    • Collect homeowner requirements and develop a project program

    • Create interior design packages - mood/material boards, detailed finish plans and elevations, finish schedules
  • Participate in developing and implementing strategies to optimize operational processes and increase efficiencies

In your first days at BuildXDesign, you will have an opportunity to review the ongoing projects, after which you will be assigned your own first project and start doing AutoCAD drafting work. Although support & training will be organised for you when you join the team, BuildXDesign counts on your solid skills and knowledge of each of the relevant programmes & familiarity with working on projects in an architectural firm. You should be capable of working on small projects independently & carrying them out successfully.
