Project manager of a property build extension based in East London. My skill set has been developed from my current project of developing a semi-detached property based in Essex. This residential build, includes a rear, side and first floor extension. My role as a design Coordinator had me dealing with contractors and frequently communicating directly with consultants and sourcing various materials suitable towards the client’s aesthetics as well as adhering towards a budget. As being an integral part of the team I had to organize the planning applications and ensure all regulations weren’t over seen. This included me drawing up drafts of the internal layout i.e. tender drawing packages using AutoCAD and aiding the architect with the client’s favorable external extension. Through this process from planning, surveying and supporting various contractors has helped me build up my knowledge of the current building regulations and communicating across foreseeable design complications towards my client and ensuring they were averted or dealt with at an earlier stage to avoid any deterrents before the construction of the building.
my previous position as a design intern at Atmos had me involved in various stages of assisting with the procedures of different projects. I was involved in illustrating full packaged construction drawings on Hide staircase in Piccadilly restaurant, where I was producing plans, elevations and detailed 2D technical drawings. By being exposed to the fast paced environment of a studio it has allowed me to grow and adapt to the needs of the business. I also was handling administrative tasks entry on data, updating, sourcing fittings and fixtures. In addition I was developing the spatial arrangement of the Thornhill project based in Southwark, where an extra room is to be refurbished into a library for a primary school. By developing an idea in Rhino 3D it had helped me gain the perspective and confidence of finding creative solutions to meet the needs of the given client and produce enjoyable spatial experiences. This was through visualizing concepts through rendering and creating mock up scenes on Photoshop and using InDesign for client pitch presentations.
Very conceptual course where design is pushed beyond the boundaries to create innovative user experiences, this helps find your own voice in design
