Meetings are usually convened every Monday, At the office I was given a variety of projects to assist on. These ranged from semi-detached two storey residential buildings to high rise residential buildings. While implementing these projects, I utilized diverse CAD softwares. I initially began by drafting in AutoCAD, then I later commenced Building information modelling. This modelling skills improvement involved the use of Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 . Occasionally, in the office, we hold seminars: presentations by prospective business partners who have the potential to facilitate the firms’ project delivery and design services in diverse ways.<br />7<br />An Overview of my Training Experience<br />

  18. 18. I visited three different sites viz:<br />The Wheatbaker Hotels, Ikoyi<br />Esowofina ltd, Victoria Island<br />A residential building at Magbon close, Victoria Island<br />I was able to learn more about the application of building materials in a real site.<br />I discovered more regarding what site supervision entails. Each site offered a different and unique experience for me. The architect must ensure that the finished building envelope corresponds with his design. I observed the crucial role of the architect in the management of the projects. The architects’ role involved a great degree of responsibility. It ranged from coordinating the members of the construction team to documentation of completion phases. The architect has to ensure that the building construction complies with established standards and regulations while maintaining the allocated time for project completion. <br />18<br />SITE EXPERIENCE<br />
