Joshua Kretay - Industry Placement Case Study

I’m working with GDM Architects at the moment because I want to hopefully go into architecture. They’ve helped me out a lot because the industry is changing so much with how drawings are moving to computer programmes like Revit. They’ve shown me how to use Revit, and my tutor is now happy with my drawings. I’ve put the skills I’ve learnt in my work place into practice in my college work. It’s become fun for me – making drawings. I want to go to university to study architecture.

They’ve given me resources too, such as an architect’s handbook. I really like it there. As a student on the Level 3 in Constuction & Built Environment, we generally do about 2 days per week in placement which helps us learn work skills like good communication.
