FaulknerBrowns

Role: architectural assistant

At this award-winning practice based in Newcastle, I have worked on a landmark community leisure centre, taking on design development for key aspects of the scheme. As part of a large team, I produced drawings for client consultation, tender and beyond. Alongside this I have worked on a number of fast-paced commercial and workplace projects, independently managing BIM models and drawing packages. I am also involved in an outreach project with local schoolchildren, and recently I have become a work experience mentor.

2016
PBWC Architects

Role: architectural assistant

At this practice in St Ives I worked on a variety of projects across different sectors. I also acquired significant insight into the planning system through developing submissions for pre-application, application and community consultation. Notably, I produced a feasibility and concept study for a school and community hall.

2016
R H Partnership

Role: architectural assistant

At this Cambridge-based practice I was involved with numerous exciting projects including office, laboratory and education schemes. This required analysis of complex urban sites with sensitive contexts. These projects ranged in scale from focussed reorganisation of historic buildings to urban master planning.

2015
Edinburgh University Design Society

Role: founding member and community projects manager

As the society built its presence within the university, I took a leadership position at the head of a committee group tasked with finding and delivering community schemes. I managed a creative team, and planned and led a number of projects and events, including a targeted marketing campaign for the Edinburgh Blood Donor Centre.

2015
Koha Architects

Role: architectural assistant

I performed a number of tasks within this busy and growing practice near Falmouth. I worked on residential community and tourism schemes and gained greater knowledge of how a practice functions, manages projects and brings them to completion.

2013 - 2014
Easylearn Publishing

Role: publication/marketing design assistant

Working with publication designers, I translated notes and manuscripts into finished products and marketing materials. This enabled me to develop a good understanding of cohesive branding and graphic design.
