Rob Younger

Rob Younger
Placement student with NBS as part of the PlanBEE Initiative.

I'm currently studying my HND in construction in the built environment through my apprenticeship. 

 

My apprenticeship is called PlanBEE and was developed by a host of companies within the construction sector who brought the course to Gateshead College to produce a feasible course built around work experience and education.

 

I spend four days a week on work placement and one day a week at college. 

 

NBS is my fourth placement in which I have been to. First of all I was at Arup, working with the electrical engineers on a project in Saudi Arabia. Working with the electrical engineers I was tasked with editing Revit models, creating new objects and removing objects.

 

My second placement was at a company called Sadler Brown Architecture, where I designed one off houses, apartment blocks and housing located within Newcastle City Centre. I used AutoCAD to edit floor plans and elevations, I also used precedence research to create new ideas for designs.

 

My third placement was with Tolent Living, where I worked on a construction site in Darlington, developing homes for Railway Housing Association. At Tolent I worked alongside the project manager and assistant project manager contributing to daily tasks. These daily tasks included; Updating drawings, releasing drawings to sub-contractors, reviewing sub-contractors work, meeting new sub-contractors and making sure that all things being built followed the designs. 

 

NBS is a completely new experience for me. I hope to gain experience and knowledge about what NBS as a company do and how they can benefit companies within the construction industry

 

Once my apprenticeship finishes I hope to have found a job role in which I really enjoy and potentially see as a career path for the future. From my past placements I think up to now, project management could be the best option for me. I'm excited to see how the emainder of my placements are going to turn out.
