It's a team effort
. . . and we've got a great team.
Buddy Webb & Company has been an established firm for over 20 years and continues to grow and evolve staying in sync with new technology but honoring time-proven values such as trust, reliability and honesty. We are licensed in 49 states allowing us to provide services to our clients nationally. In addition, our small firm status puts our architectural associate team members on a fast track to becoming knowledgeable about the overall design and construction industry. Our experienced team leaders provide assistance and oversight and have quality control guidelines in place…all of which provide an excellent opportunity to expand on the knowledge obtained in the classroom and apply it to real-life projects and situations. Registered Architects have an opportunity to advance within the firm and assume more responsibility.
Our Design Professionals generally fall into two categories:
An Architectural Associate holds a Bachelor's or Master's Degree of Architecture and is on the path to architectural licensure. This individual performs research and analyses and develops designs and technical solutions under the direct supervision of a licensed architect.
An Architect has at least three years of experience and has obtained licensure. This individual exercises independent judgement and problem-solving based on knowledge and experience, while collaborating with the team for additional ideas and perspectives.
General Requirements & Responsibilities
All architectural employees must have a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Architecture from a NAAB accredited program.
Must participate in the AXP (Architectural Experience Program) unless already fully licensed.
Must obtain state architectural registration within two (2) years of eligibility, unless already fully licensed.
Manage assigned projects from conception through completion.
Develop a knowledge of construction materials, means and methods.
Develop a knowledge of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) contract document requirements and responsibilities.
We work in an industry that is ever-changing as new technologies, tools, and resources are developed. In order to provide the best possible service to our clients, we have to continue to learn, adapt, and evolve. As a firm and as individuals, we participate in professional organizations such as AIA, CSI, the Springfield Contractors Association, and the Springfield Chamber of Commerce. These organizations offer a multitude of learning opportunities and provide us with a network of professionals both within and beyond our industry with whom we can share knowledge and ideas and form connections.
At BWCO, we have established committees to focus on different areas of our firm development - Business Development, Marketing, and Design & Technology. Each team member chooses a committee and then participates in regular conversations regarding how that area of the firm can develop and evolve. This helps us maintain focus and forward momentum in all three areas. Our staff is the future of this firm, and it is important that they each have a voice in our operations and direction. It's also an opportunity to utilize some of the other talents and skills of our staff and helps keep things varied and interesting for everyone.
Employees of BWCO are encouraged to be involved in the community through volunteer work and involvement in local organizations. The company allows employees time off work each month to volunteer without having to use vacation time. The firm also supports local charitable organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Ozarks Food Harvest, and the Shriners through sponsorships and donations. Additionally, we provide support to charities and community betterment organizations by providing pro bono design services.
