If you are an architect with interest or experience in forensics and construction technology, we should talk.

At Davidson & Associates, we pride ourselves on being licensed architects who come to our forensic discipline with experience as working architects-of-record. In response to heavy demand for our services, we are looking for other seasoned professionals with demonstrated expertise as recognized through relationships with architectural, construction or development entities. If you are an architect with notable construction experience and are interested in expanding into forensics, we offer mentorship including hands-on roles and analysis opportunities not available at large national firms. We invest in the ongoing professional development of our staff in an environment that will promote long-term relationships with our firm and clientele.

You will be highly visible.

We compete with the largest regional and national firms. But you won’t have to compete for visibility on our team. D&A’s size and philosophy assures you will have frontline responsibility and recognition for high-profile projects with the support of other team members always available. You get to focus on the work you trained to do and gain new experience, rather than performing mundane tasks while wading through corporate hierarchy.

Your passion will be appreciated.

We are architecture wonks. We excel because we have frontline experience in the design and construction of wide-ranging new and remedial projects. We believe absolutely in the work we do, we revel in the minutiae, and we appreciate and support colleagues who feel the same way.

You will develop professionally.

We never stop learning. Learning from failures and developing creative technical architectural solutions is a unique opportunity. In new construction, our reputation is built on how we achieve and leverage up-to-the-second knowledge of the latest building trends, materials, regulations and more. Every day is a new chance to be smarter, wiser, and better informed than other professionals in our industry.

You'll want to stay.

We’re proud of the long-term stability of our team. The forensic architects who come to Davidson & Associates stay with us. It’s a fast-paced, demanding environment that will challenge, engage, and satisfy you. Every forensic project has new challenges and never becomes rudimentary or boring. Your efforts will make a clear, quantifiable difference to our clients, and you will be rewarded for your success.
