Job ID: 44446Start Date: 01/31/2019End Date: 02/04/2019
To be eligible for this position, you must meet the basic requirements and possess the qualifying specialized experience, and/or education as described in the occupational questionnaire and as outlined below. All qualifications must be met by the closing date of this announcement. BASIC REQUIREMENT FOR GS-0808 ARCHITECT: Possess a bachelors or higher degree from an accredited college or university in architecture or a related field that included 60 semester hours of course work in architecture or related disciplines, of which at least (1) 30 semester hours were in architectural design, and (2) 6 semester hours were in each of the following: structural technology, properties of materials and methods of construction, and environmental control systems.
Possess a combination of education and experience, college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the arts and sciences underlying professional architecture, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the architectural principles, methods, and techniques and their applications to the design and construction of improvement of buildings. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by at least ONE of the following: 1) Related curriculum: A degree in architectural engineering may be accepted as satisfying in full the basic requirements, provided the completed course work in architectural engineering provided knowledge, skills, and abilities substantially equivalent to those provided in the courses specified in paragraph A. The curriculum for a degree in either architecture or architectural engineering covers function, esthetics, site, structure economics, mechanical-electrical, and other engineering problems related to the design and construction of buildings primarily (but not exclusively) intended to house human activities. The courses required for a degree in architecture generally place emphasis upon planning, esthetics, and materials and methods of construction, while the courses for an architectural engineering degree place equal or greater weight on the technical engineering aspects such as structural systems, mechanical systems, and the properties of materials. Because of this difference in emphasis, persons with degrees in architecture may have a preference for work assignments that offer greater opportunities for them to express their artistic and creative abilities. As a result, they may be more concerned with planning and design aspects of architecture, and persons with degrees in architectural engineering may be more engaged in aspects emphasizing technical engineering considerations; 2) Experience: an applicant lacking a degree in architecture must have had 1 year of experience in an architect’s office or in architectural work for each year short of graduation from a program of study in architecture. In the absence of college course, 5 years of such experience is required. This experience must have demonstrated that the applicant has acquired a thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles and theories of professional architecture. – AND – To qualify for this position, you must possess at least one of the following minimum qualifications by close of the announcement: EXPERIENCE: At least one full year of specialized experience comparable in scope and responsibility to the GS-9 grade level in the Federal service (obtained in either the public or private sectors). This experience includes activities such as: serving as architectural project coordinator for planning, design, and construction projects; performing architectural work involving the development or design of conceptual park site plans of a diverse, multi-functional, high profile, and possibly controversial nature (such as rehabilitation of a multi-facility development, visitor centers, wastewater treatment plants, national monuments, seawalls, historical structures, cultural landscapes, etc.); assisting with or establishing historic architectural project requirements and priorities and developing strategies to achieve short or long-term goals; developing scope of work and monitoring architectural project activities and outcomes as Contracting Officer’s Representative.
EDUCATION: possess a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree OR three full years of progressively higher-level graduate education leading to such a degree in a field of study that is directly related to the work of the position, such as architecture, and which demonstrates possession of the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to do the work of this position. You must include transcripts.
Successful completion of a combination of education and experience as described above. -OR-
Possess registration to practice architecture by one of the State registration boards, using standards in compliance with the basic minimum provisions recommended by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. Volunteer Experience: Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. You must include months, years and hours per week worked to receive credit for your work and/or volunteer experience. One year of specialized experience is equivalent to 12 months at 40 hours per week. Part-time hours are prorated.
