Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

Over the course of my internship and shadow program with Pepper Lawson Construction and Ziegler Cooper Architects, I was able to explore the various career paths involved in the design, construction, and civil engineering fields. My work on the construction site of a high-rise apartment building located in the heart of Houston, TX allowed me first-hand experience working and learning alongside project engineers, contractors, building developers, and the construction team.

This project was the perfect confluence of my main areas of interest: structural, mechanical, civil, and environmental engineering, as well as architecture. My daily work consisted of on-site walk throughs, studying of project specific drawings, and meetings held between project executives and project management. Join me as I discuss my time spent on-site of The Catalyst, and showcase the transformation between in-progress project and finished product.

Comments

My internship was unaffiliated with Augustana College, but has become my senior inquiry presentation topic.
