Weekly Overview –
Last week at Novus Architects I helped with interior design work for one of our workplace clients. We are currently in a great place; we have TOO much work and not enough support. I gained valuable experience in project management by taking this on by myself. Our interior designer helped guide me through the process of material selection, but gave me the reins. I also presented the first round of options to our client and updated the drawing sets based on their feedback. This experience has provided me with further knowledge of material selection, budget, client management; as well as detailing. This week I continued to refine the palette based on feedback from the client and populated the CD drawing set with all things interior related, this meant working with schedules, interior elevations, and casework.
Monday 2/11 – Every Monday we have an all staff meeting at the beginning of the day to go over which sectors have deadlines and which staff will be out of office. My hours today fall in the PcM, PjM, and PPD categories.
Tuesday 2/12 – Continued interior work, contact with material reps. My hours today fall in the PjM and PPD categories.
Wednesday 2/13 – On Wednesday mornings, we have a sector meeting to go over project coverage and delegation of work. This meeting is great to see project management first hand. My hours today fall in the PjM and PPD categories.
Thursday 2/14 – Today was the big day, I presented two interior palette options to the workplace client. They LOVED them. I presented a lighter brown tone as well as a more grey palette; they picked the grey palette. My hours today fall in the PjM and PPD categories.
Monday 2/18 – All staff meeting in the morning. During the day I began to take the feedback from the client and populate material schedules in Revit. I also refined the materials with any changes the client wanted. My hours today fall in the PcM, PjM, and PPD categories.
