Ardmac School Placement Brochure

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED WITH ARDMAC? I’ve been working with Ardmac since 2016. HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY? Hard work – I qualified towards the end of the recession so it wasn’t very promising on the job front – I got an internship in Carlow IT in the facilities dept when I graduated. I realised it was going to be a while before I found a job as a Technologist. So I decided I would start contacting Architect’s firms and offer my services for free in order to have some experience for when jobs became available. So for 6 months I worked in an architectural practise during the week and continued my part time job I had in college at weekends. I then moved to an Architectural & Planning company where I was for two years before starting in Ardmac. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ARDMAC? I’d out grown planning and housing and wanted a change. WHAT IS THE CULTURE AT ARDMAC LIKE? Stressful, empowering and challenging all at the same time. WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? The people, I work with a great team & seeing projects you worked on being constructed. ADVICE FOR SOMEONE STARTING OUT AS AN ARCHITECTURAL TECHNOLOGIST? Always be willing to learn and if you make a mistake the earlier you admit it the smaller a mistake it is. It’s far easier to correct when it’s still on paper.
