We have developed this new educational space to make our work experience programme available to students who are interested in architecture and design and would like to explore what this exciting industry is all about.
Our work experience programme would normally be undertaken by secondary school pupils within one of our UK based offices over the course of a week but now due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken our work experience programme and evolved this into 2 sets of tasks which can be completed at home with no time restrictions.
We hope at the end of completing these tasks you will have further developed your interest in architecture and will have learnt skills and understanding in spatial modelling and interpreting a client brief.
The two work experiences:
The Design Work Experience – This experience is made up of two tasks, the first to get you familiar with SketchUp and the second to design a house for a celebrity. (Approximate time to complete – 30 hours)
The Technical Work Experience – Our newest work experience task is to design and construct a new-build contemporary extension using Revit. (Approximate time to complete – 30 hours)
This task will give you those initial SketchUp skills which will help you when you come to model your House for a Celebrity in the second task.
This task is a fun way of putting together a brief, choosing a site, interpreting your client’s style and taste while developing and using your 3D modelling skills.
We understand that filling your time (or your children’s time) may have become trickier in recent weeks. Because of this we are running a competition on top of our new work experience programme which is open to children of all ages!
If you stumble across any problems or need some extra help while completing the programme, please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing email@example.com and one of our team will be glad to help.
