I am originally from Thailand. I have been interested in design, architecture, building and construction that is the reason why I chose to follow my passion to become an architect. Even though, my undergraduate is food engineering which is not really related to the architecture field but engineering school taught me to think more critically and systematically which help me a lot in design thinking process, problem-solving in working, and living.
Now I am currently working with the precast concrete production firm called Dura-Stress as a project coordinator where I help preparing and checking shop drawings, construction documents, foundation plans, coordinate with civil engineers, structural engineers, architects, project managers with in and out of the firm and also production staff during preliminary phase, submittal phase and production phase. As well as preparing preliminary 3d modeling by using Revit, sketch up, and AutoCAD. Here I learn and experience more in structural aspects, precast concrete design, and working with team members and project managers. The projects that they mostly work on here are precast parking garage, retail store, car dealer ship, private housing, boat deck and bridges
For my previous job, I worked with a medium sized architectural firm in St. Petersburg, Tampa. They work on both commercial and residential projects including high-rise condominium complex, the market town, cultural center, mix-used residential, restaurant, affordable housing, etc. I had a chance to work on construction documents, preliminary drawings, 3d modeling, detailing, schematic design, presentation board, materials selections, site visit and measurement, marketing plan, etc. Sketch up and AutoCAD is the main based program here. The architect will assigned us a job and we also coordinate with the design project team.
While I was in school here in Florida, During summer break I had a chance to go back to Thailand and did summer internship with Thai architectural firm. With A49 and DBALP I helped them preparing board presentation, preliminary 3d modeling, ,physical models, skin design and development for residential complex high-rise building and department store, skin design for public pedestrian bridge, construction documents (sections/plans).
As well as I have studied aboard.
