Working at STG Design this summer was such a rewarding experience. I have learned more about this profession and what being an architect is all about in the past three months than in four years of college. I have worked on a variety of things here, including plan and detail drawing and 3-D modeling. The latter helped me have a better understanding of building structure and design proficiency and how to work in Revit more efficiently. I was also able to go on a punch walk site visit for one of our projects in College Station to help me in learning on-site and training my eyes to see mistakes.
Since this was my first time interning, I learned a great deal about being a professional, as well as building better professional relationships. It is so different being in school for architecture than working in the real world – attention to detail is everything! One little mess up can cost someone thousands of dollars, which is one thing I never thought about nearly enough when I was in school. I loved the office environment and everyone who works here. The staff has been so helpful answering all my questions and helping me learn more about this field.
I thoroughly enjoyed working here and can say that STG Design is definitely one of the best places to work!
