Requirements

Conditions of Employment

A one-year probationary period may be required.

Applicants must possess at least a Bachelor's Degree or equivalent.

Occasional travel may be required.

Position subject to pre-employment background investigation.

You must meet qualifications requirements by the closing date of this announcement.

Qualifications

In addition to the Basic Education Requirement, you must have one year of specialized experience equivalent to the next lower grade which has equipped you with the particular competencies needed to successfully perform the duties of the position described above.

To qualify for the GS-09 grade level, applicants must have one year specialized experience at the next lower grade level (GS-07), which is defined as assisting and/or research in areas of architect serving on a design team with responsibility for development and completion of small projects design under the supervision of senior staff members.

To qualify for the GS-11 grade level, applicants must have one year of specialized experience at the next lower grade level (GS-09), which is defined as interpreting architectural concepts, principles, and practices applicable to for the design, layout and construction of large multi-story structures such as office buildings, technical/laboratory and medical and training facilities.

To qualify for the GS-12 grade level, applicants must have one year of specialized experience at the next lower grade level (GS-11), which is defined as providing guidance in architectural services for the design, layout and construction of large multi-story structures such as office buildings, technical/laboratory and medical and training facilities. Experience in architectural project management of major building projects from the preliminary planning stage through the design, construction, and equipment installation stages to the check-out stage or point of occupancy.

Basic Requirements:

1. Degree: architecture; or 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.

OR

2.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 or improvement of buildings. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by at least one of the following:

1. Related Curriculum: 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 l 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 courses, 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.

To receive consideration for education, your resume MUST contain your complete degree information (i.e., type of degree-received, year degree received, and major area of study). If you are selected for this position, you will have to provide an official copy of your transcripts prior to entering on duty.
