COAR Design Group

Architecture that enhances quality of life.

COAR is an abbreviation of the term: COmmunity ARchitects. Community is at the heart of everything we do and every project we complete. Communities can be small or large but they’re never singular. They tend to be layered, complex, and diverse. More importantly, they reflect the groups of individuals that are integrated into each and every project: The end users, stakeholders, patrons, partners, designers, builders, and residents. At COAR Design Group, we create spaces that bring people together and serve the community.

To expand our team working out of the Santa Rosa, CA office we are actively seeking a Job Captain. At COAR, Job Captains work closely with the internal and extended project team to create design and construction documents in Revit. Job Captains are intimately involved in the project and primarily responsible for creating and coordinating the architectural set of drawings.

At COAR Design Group, we value each and every one of our team members and their unique skills and experiences that help to create our well rounded and collaborative culture. We are creators, facilitators, and problem-solvers. We focus on delivering solutions that positively impact communities and approach each challenge with enthusiasm, an open mind, and willingness to go above and beyond.
