Welcome to Mainspace Office Solutions
Ok. Before I get started, please don't judge my "desk selfie." Jason was out of the office this afternoon, so I didn't have anyone to take a picture of me at my desk. The good news is that I learned how to use my iPhone camera timer! Isn't that what this internship is all about? Learning new and exciting things?
The last couple of days have been very busy for me, but I'm not complaining! I have seriously enjoyed having something productive to do. Yesterday, Jason and I met with the dean and financial officer in charge of the College of Nursing project at USM. I really enjoyed being a part of a hands-on meeting regarding a real project. They even asked for my opinion multiple times, which I was hesitant to give at first. But, you know me, I warmed up to them pretty quickly. Thankfully, the dean wanted to see a few things at the College of Business, so I finally got a tour! For those of you who haven't seen it yet, it is beautiful! I've been giving it some thought, and I am going to propose that we give the business school the Kate and we take Scianna Hall. What do y'all think?
Jason had the chance to stop by the Kate a few days ago, and he saw my boards from the architectural firm project. Now, he is giving me the responsibility to come up with the renderings for the nursing school! I am super nervous to be given such an important role in the project, but I'm ready to show them all I've got. Right now, I am working in AutoCAD. Once I finalize the space plan for the Dean's Suite, I am going to send the file to OED and let them render a couple of preliminary space options. From there, I am going to take the project into Revit and create my own renderings. I am anxious to see the different products the two programs create.
Next week is when we will start installing furniture at Scianna Hall. Make sure to check back then! Who knows? There may be a little sneak peek of USM's newest building!
