● Conduct/attend site visits and on-site work as necessary.
● Travel as needed to plan and execute Solomon Group’s fabrication projects.
● Help to create and communicate clear, accurate information to the craftsmen on the floor.

REQUIREMENTS
● Proficiency with both 3D and 2D drafting programs of various types (including SketchUp, AutoCAD, VectorWorks and Illustrator).
● Experience with corporate, live performance, brand activation, trade show, theatrical settings, and private event design and fabrication techniques.
● Experience working with a wide range of materials including wood, acrylic, aluminum, steel, composites and laminates.
● Proficiency with Mac computers and operating systems.
