    Design Director, Landscape Architecture
    Kounkuey Design Initiative
    Full-time
     
    Job Description

    Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) is an international, non-profit, design and community development firm, offering landscape architecture among its many services. KDI uses design as a tool for social justice. Specifically, the firm collaborates with under-resourced communities to advance equity and activate the unrealized potential in neighborhoods and cities. This mission is accomplished through advocacy, research, planning, and built works. Often, KDI works with local residents, to transform unsafe and under-utilized places, into “Productive Public Spaces”. From permanent parks, to temporary vacant lot activations, each space integrates key amenities such as community buildings, water and sanitation facilities, green infrastructure, and open spaces for recreation and exercise. KDI executes all phases of the design process.


    KDI believes community-led planning is key to sustainable and equitable change, so KDI also helps residents design and implement programming that generates income, energizes culture, builds community capacity, and brings the Productive Public Spaces to life for years to come. KDI designs “with” each client, and not “for”. The firm has five departments: design, planning, community, research, and operations. KDI started when 6 students at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, developed a two-week research project in Nairobi, Kenya. That project took on a life of its own, and KDI was formed in 2010.


    With offices in Los Angeles, Nairobi, and Stockholm, KDI continues to grow and further its mission, with domestic and international projects. KDI has been recognized for its innovative approach to poverty alleviation by notable institutions such as The Rockefeller Foundation, UN-Habitat, The California Endowment, Ashoka Changemakers, American Express, Annenberg Alchemy, Smithsonian Institute, IDEO, Echoing Green, The Atlantic Renewal Project, and UN/Dubai and Swiss Re Foundation. KDI is seeking a unique Design Director to lead and build the Landscape Design team in our Los Angeles office, and carry out our mission to advance equity, and activate the unrealized potential in neighborhoods and cities, in partnership with under-resourced communities facing political, social, and physical challenges This is a salaried, full time position with benefits.


    Position Overview: The Design Director will be responsible for strengthening and growing KDI’s landscape design practice; building our staff’s and organization’s capacity to deliver innovative, multi-faceted built projects; and expanding our reach to new communities throughout California and the U.S. We’re looking for someone with a strong interest in social justice and participatory processes; exceptional design ability; extensive experience implementing built projects; a track record as a leader who can work collaboratively, mentor staff, and carry out a vision for what design can achieve in under-resourced communities. This is not a conventional design position; for the chosen candidate, this is an incredible opportunity to lead public park projects, shape KDI’s design department, growing a team, and work extensively with communities.

    Job: To Secure a Building Permit for a new 500 sq. ft Spanish ADU (with High Ceiling in Living Room and Kitchen only) before 3/31/19 - when the Plan Check Fee extension expires.


    The designer who was working on it decided to quit. He had been on the project since last April (contract signed.) He was hired after I got my hand-drawn plans (Site Plan, Floor Plan and Elevations) approved. - He claimed to be a Structural Engineer.


    I do not have the Returned Submittals, but I have copies of his Plans (Architectural, Structural and T-24) and pics on all submittal corrections required.


    1st Submittal: Designer did not show the High Ceiling in the elevations - ceiling heights were shown only in the Floor Plan.

    2nd Submittal: Designer did not have all of the required corrections done. Plan Checker found that the Structural Calculations for Seismic and Wind Load was incorrect.
