Our intern, Elizabeth (Lizzy) Johnson, is more than halfway through her stint working in our Commercial studio. It’s been great having her here this summer.
Lizzy is a fifth-year architecture student at Kennesaw State University and an active volunteer for Georgia nonprofits, like Atlanta’s Habitat for Humanity. (If you know us well, you know we also have a heart for nonprofits.)
Working at Jones Pierce Architects, Lizzy is getting a broad amount of experience. Here are some of the things on her “what I learned this summer” list:
Helping out at job sites, including assessing the extent of water damage and learning waterproofing details for remediation work we’re doing.
Gaining invaluable hands-on experience seeing how building systems can fail — then learning how to better detail to prevent those failures.
Producing construction drawings.
Assisting in preparing Special Administrative Permit (SAP) documents that include life safety assessments of projects.
Generating various calculations needed for zoning, planning and building department criteria.
Helping with our marketing efforts to compile projects and relevant information for a new website that’s in the works.
Assisting with materials we will submit for an awards competition.
Thanks for all you’re doing this summer, Lizzy, and the enthusiasm you bring to your work!
