Transcripts - Porfolio A4

  • 1. From a young age I was submerged in building and construction, my uncle was a builder in my home town and I grew up surrounded by the Built Environment and Construction sector. I always showed an interest in buildings, construction and especially Modern buildings. In secondary school I did classes to push me on in this area, Engineering, Art History, construction studies, Technical Graphics and Design Communications Graphics. After school I enlisted in a Computer Aided Design/Interior Design course where I got full Distinctions in all modules, and I also earned the Student of the year award. I then made the transition to The Institute of Technology Carlow where I studied Architectural Technology. I was always involved with other aspects in school and college, wanting to help other people is an ongoing goal of mine. I got involved in my Students Union. I was elected as Class Representative in my first and second year. Working in a group and being part of a team is one of my best attributes, because of this. Learning in on going and gaining experience is vital, this is the reason I applied for work placement EMMET DUGGAN architects ltd I hope to learn and take away as much knowledge, skills, experience as possible, and to also build my library of contacts and networks by making new friends along my journey. 2015 Architectural Technology Portfolio Ryan Forde AutoCAD Revit Architecture Revit MEP EcoTech Analysis Technical Detailing Renewable and Sustainable Services Building Regulations (Irish + English) Current Law and Legislation (Irish) Health and Safety in Construction Building and Site Surveying Hand Drafting (Free Hand + Hardline) Model Making Adobe Photoshop Microsoft Software Areas of Knowledge and Efficiency Education 2011-Fetac Level 5 CAD/Interior Design Bray Institute of Further Education Passed w/ Distinction.

  • 4. Killeshin Building, IT Carlow No.01 2014 - 2015 Existing Building Refurbishment & Upgrade The building we were given to survey and upgrade was a timber framed prefab on campus. My goal was to upgrade the building to current regulations which included the thermal performance. The building had to be surveyed to see what the existing build up was and note any services, deflects, etc. I had to examine various solutions to upgrade the envelope and services and in doing this demonstrate it visually between existing, demolished and proposed. I used external software, EcoTech, and bream to measure the difference in existing and proposed thermal performance
