Internship at Construction Sites
The internship spans more than 60 hours over 2 Weeks.
Location: Construction Site
Cost: Two Credit Hours
Nowadays, architects learn to design buildings within the walls of the studio. Rarely does any architecture school encourage actual building experience on the construction site, even if it’s a teeny-tiny structure! This is perhaps one of the major drawbacks of modern-day architectural education.
We reckon that substantial time on the construction site should be mandatory for graduation from architecture school and that is why we are offering this internship. Practical experiences on the site hit you hard with reality-checks over and over again. You realize that what you’ve been drawing for centuries had major gaps in construction knowledge. Hence, it is essential that you find your way onto a construction site, even if that construction site is your own land.
In this internship, you will be able to experience what it is like to be on a construction site, whether it is on a small or medium scale project. You will get to experience planning, purchasing, management, monitoring, constructions, builders interactions tasks in reality. The internship is for 10-12 continuous full days. Allocation to sites will depend on availability, first-come first-served basis. Interns are responsible for all transportation to and from the sites.
