With the end of the Memorial Day holiday comes the beginning of design-build program. Both projects are shaping up to be interesting and challenging projects. This Tuesday, May 27th, at 1:00, we will have the first of two kickoff meetings. At this first meeting we will cover the details of the program and introduce you to the Huntersville housing project. The second kickoff meeting, which will cover the Grier Heights project, is tentative scheduled for Thursday, May 29th. The time has yet to be set, but it most likely will occur in the morning. Please plan on attending both meetings, if you can, regardless of which project you prefer to work. Please let me know if you will not be able to attend either meeting.
For those of you wanting to participate in this program as an architectural elective, please see Redeena in the college office.
For those of you wanting to participate in this program as a paid internship, I am still working out the details with the university and the clients; however, it is beginning to look like the paid internships will be structured with a required number of hours and lump sum stipends. The size of the stipends and the number of hours required for the internships has yet to be determined.
For those of you wanting to participate in this the program as an unpaid internship, or for IDP credits, it looks like the only thing that remains to be done is to fill out some forms. Unlike the paid internships there is no minimum number of hours you must work.
Below is a schedule of what will be covered during the first meeting.
