COYO – Work experience student at BIM.Technologies
Over the past week we have been blown away by how fast our 16 year old work experience student Olawale Labulo who is from Peckham has picked up Revit and learnt about the fundamentals of BIM.
Having no experience whatsoever with Revit, and only using Sketchup for around 6 months, some of the work he produced is highly impressive. Not only getting to grips with modelling in Revit but also the understanding of some of the more advanced tools in Revit, for example modeling parametric array families has really impressed us all.
Below is a sample of some of the work he has been doing and a short snippet of his concluding statement. After giving him a simple house to model (which he completed in a couple of hours) he took matters into his own hands and started to design his own building (apparently inspired from the computer game Minecraft!).
Here at BIM.Technologies I learnt how to use Revit at the basic level; learning how to make families, stairs, floors, ceilings, roofs and rendering. I also learned what they did as a job; help fix problems in building designs that they found in big builds they have been assigned with.
This experience at BIM.Technologies hasn’t motivated me to pursue a career in Architecture because before coming to work at BIM.Technologies I already knew what career I wanted to pursue; to become an Architect. However it did give me a further insight to what was to expect in the line of Architecture. So overall I have always been motivated to pursue a career in Architecture, but this experience has enhanced the motivation I have in becoming an Architect.
The things I find interesting about these professions is that they get to work on wonderful buildings in London and across the UK. The thought of knowing that u help in the construction of an iconic building or just a wonderful looking build brings great joy to me.
Ola is sure to be a future star of Architecture or any other career he decides to pursue. All of us here at BIM.Technologies wish him the best of luck in whatever he decides to do, and hope he remembers us when he’s famous!
Great to see the passion and skills of the future generation. Thanks also to Alison Watson from Class of your own who arranged Olawale’s stay with us, and who does fantastic work to promote and inspire school children into a career in Architecture, Engineering and Construction!
