Martin Luther King Pool Cover
Charleston, South Carolina
Project Scope: Our firm is renovating the existing pool in downtown Charleston, the MLK public pool. This renovation includes new landscaping/fencing, an entirely new strucuture covering the pool, a renovation of the existing buildings, and additional parking across the street.
Project Manager: Mike Nixon
Role of Student: Working on Redlines for this project. I spent time organizing files, printing sheet sets, and editing documents for the project architect.
What I have learned:
This week emphasized more of a broad idea – sometimes, you don’t get a lot done. I feel like this entire week was spent working on fixing the same files over and over, and working on getting my Autodesk to cooperate with me. Even though I worked the entire week, I feel like I didn’t get too much accomplished. Even though it’s a little disappointing, I know that sometimes there are ups and downs. I also realize that architects need to also be computer-wizzes.
More on a learning level, I realized that the architect is responsible for putting everyone’s drawings together. Mechanical, plumbing, electrical, civil, etc. I spent a lot of time organizing the work from everyone into our large filing system. I suppose the project architect is more like a hub of communication for any project. This job seems to have more and more layers every week.
