Learning and Improving Her Craft

>> Saturday, December 12, 2009

I had a chat with my architect friend few weeks ago and she’s informing me of the latest updates of her works. She decided to leave her regular employment in consultancy firm to concentrate on contracting her own residential and building projects. She didn’t want to be employed for a long time because she really wanted to make it on her own, to have her own construction firm. Now she ventured into international business having her clients in Dubai and nearby cities. She was very happy on her accomplished dream and she told me about her gained knowledge on her present projects. She should know every modern technology on construction business so she can apply them on her projects locally and internationally.

She excitedly told me that all of her knowledge in our previous company has helped her a lot in dealing with engineers and clients. Now that construction have advanced technologically she’s learning all modern techniques in building construction like using insulated concrete forms to construct building and residential grade walls and basement. There are lots of things to be learned and she’s looking forward to know all of those things that will help her improve her knowledge.
