About the Company

Established over 30 years ago, Techlam is a proudly New Zealand owned and operated company. Based in Levin, with offices also in Auckland and Christchurch, the company provides design and engineered timber solutions for a wide range of architectural and commercial construction projects across NZ, Australia and the Pacific, and is focused on operational excellence and outstanding customer service.

About the role

We are looking for CAD Technician who understands building processes and NZS3604. This role will develop into coordination of the shop drawing process and turning clients’ designs into detailed technical drawings. Our head office and production facility are in Levin and this role can be based in the head office or our Auckland or Christchurch offices, or from home with regular visits to head office.

You will be working with clients, engineers and architects to prepare shop drawings and ensure our product team can prefabricate in a timely and accurate manner. This is a collaborative role and you will be a key member of delivery team.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Produce shop drawings and CNC files for timber members, hardware and connections
  • Produce 2D / 3D models for client presentations
  • Review project files for compliance with relevant standards and codes
  • Provide QS support to sales when pricing larger / unusual projects
  • Work closely with production to ensure smooth handover of projects

About you

You will bring a proactive and flexible approach with an appetite to work on a range of projects.

You may come from an architectural or construction background and we are more interested in your ability to deliver to a high standard than number of years experience.

A good working knowledge of Revit is valuable, and any experience with Cadwork (or similar timber construction focused software) will be useful.

We offer an excellent salary, exposure to interesting and challenging projects, plus support for professional development and certification.
