Experience

 

Clifton Emery Design - Architectural Assistant

Summer 2019

  

Clifton Emery Design (Exeter) - During my 4 months at CED I worked on a wide variety of residential projects. Using Autocad, Sketchup and the Adobe suite I produced planning drawings, design access statements, large scale Sketchup models and many other drawings that contributed to award winning residential schemes across the southwest. Spending

a long period of time in the studio meant seeing projects properly progress over time, something I had not previously experienced in my time doing work experience.

Cardiff University - Welsh School of Architecture

Summer 2019


Privately commissioned by Wayne Forster (deputy head of school) to produce site models for housing schemes in South Wales.

Stride Treglown Architects - Work experience

Summer 2016

At Stride Treglown in Truro I spent a week completing a design challenge where I had to design a new lifeguard hut for a beach of my choice. Being from Falmouth, Gyllyngvase was an obvious choice. During this week I became more competent with photoshop and began to appreciate issues regards context and scale in design. It was a very valuable week and one I was lucky to take part in.

Fletcher Priest Architects - Work experience

Summer 2015

Fletcher Priest (London) - here I spent a week shadowing an associate at the firm where I sat in on key design meetings and spent time using Autocad to laser cut models for St Annes College, Oxford. It was a pleasure to spend time in a large firm such as this one and appreciate the professional work environment.
