We have permanent offices in both New York and San Francisco. This opportunity is based in our NY office.
During this internship, the candidate will gain access to the total process of design, engineering and construction of high-performance building envelopes. The program will be structured to provide hands on experience with design development, detailing and engineering tasks. The candidate will have the opportunity to attend project team meetings involving the Architect, Owner and Façade Contractor on a variety of projects.
