Here are a few examples of roles that our Architecture Interns have taken on before:
From designing the interior to adapting the exterior of a new build, you will get the opportunity to hone your design skills during the internship. You will learn how to use essential software while actively building your portfolio, working on a range of residential and commercial designs alongside reputable, experienced architects in the industry.
Working with clients to create structured plans for a project’s processes is integral. You will assist the architect during any given project – including developments – conducting the necessary research, communicating with construction workers and clients, and ensuring the consistent delivery of progress reports for the respective projects. All while shadowing your designated architect (mentor) from beginning to end.
Conducting site visits will be crucial, not only to your role as an intern but to your development. Site visits include site inspections, safety and compliance assessments, and so on, timeously delivering your findings to the experienced members of the team.
The placement and structure of landscaped areas, such as gardens and walkways, require a lot of research and planning, especially with regard to environmentally friendly practices. As an assistant, you will be shadowing the landscape architect, conducting research on the required materials, as well as assisting in determining the location, look and feel of different aspects of the design.
