This week our Part 2 architectural graduate Cath has been working on developing our exciting community project following recent design meetings with our client. Cath is working as project lead with guidance from our team in the office, in preparation for her Part 3 studies which she will be beginning in September.
In her own words Cath explains more about the project.
As a graduate of architecture, I never thought I’d be working on a scheme like this so early in my architectural career. Opportunities like this don’t come along that often in the commercial architectural world. When my mentor Andrew Southey discussed the possibility of SDA assisting our client on this project I knew it would be an amazing opportunity to put my skills to good use, whilst also allowing me to develop my knowledge of running a project through. During the early stages I have developed the project from it’s initial brief, attending meetings with the client, gaining their approval before submitting drawings for planning. The next stage looks at developing the project forward to procurement all whilst working to secure donations and assistance from people within the building profession in the development of tender information. I’ve been amazed by how generous people have been, and I’ll be writing about the donations we have received in the coming weeks, for which myself and our client are incredibly grateful. The project is absolutely unique, and throws up a number of questions that as architects we wouldn’t normally have to think about, but I’m excited for the challenge.
