about

Oscar Ramirez

I am a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Architecture degree as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. With my architecture and hands on experience in this field, I am confident that I have the specific qualities that you are looking for in a candidate.

I have been employeed at Arquitectonica for the past 2 years and 6 months. Throughtout my time here, I have I managed multiple hospitality, commercial, residential and restaurant design projects. I led and oversaw teams from initial design phase to project construction and completion. As project manager my duties also involed making sure we stayed within the project budget, presenting solid concept designs to the clients, organizing meetings with the client, contractor and our design team and making sure with fulfilled our task according and hit our deadlines.

Previous to Arquitectonica, I have 4 years of experience working in New York at G. Switzer Architecture P.C., a small full service architecture firm, where I currently manage multiple commercial, residential and restaurant design projects. Most of my responsibilities are that of a project manager or job captain. Being the most senior person at my firm under the Principal, I lead and collaborate with my team from initial design phase to project construction and completion. Working in a small firm has given me exposure to all aspects of the practice. When I am not in the office, I am surveying, actively participating in meetings with our clients to presenting our solutions and designs, and on site, overseeing construction and advising contractors when necessary. When in the office I am developing full construction documents, maintaining constant contact with clients via email or phone and developing solutions for all projects I am currently involved in.

I am currently in the process of becoming licensed, having taken and passed 4 of the A.R.E. exams.
