Project Spotlight: The Bridge SchoolMay 6, 2021
With ambitious plans for the future, we’ve been meticulously handpicking staff to join the team because we fully understand that our company and our future projects will only be as good as our people. We’re keen to keep pushing ourselves with new ideas and techniques, so selecting the right people for the Design Team is particularly key.
This week, we caught up with our newest addition: Interior Designer, Will Hall.
Hi Will! Welcome. Let’s start with a little bit of background about yourself. Tell us about your family.
I am Welsh through and through, however I grew up and spent the majority of my life in South West London. My mum has worked for housing associations and my Dad was a teacher and now master DIY’er so I’ve always wanted to get into the construction industry.
Sounds like you ended up just where you belong. So you’ve left the family home and what was next? Did you go to university?
Yes, I headed North to leafy Nottingham where I spent three years reading Architecture. I loved the course, which had fantastic blue sky projects to work on. But I am more than glad to be doing design and projects that are actually being built now here at Apteriors too!
And we enjoy making use of some of that blue sky thinking at the same time. It’s a win-win. What have you enjoyed working on the most, so far?
Ultimately, my main responsibility is to ensure our designs meet the client brief and (at the very least) meet their expectations. This needs to be the case while liaising with all the other contributors to our projects as well.
But what really attracted me to the role, was the space to drive forward BIM skills and knowledge – that goes for myself and for the company too. It’s the driving force of the construction industry currently. You need it to survive and I am learning so much here while, I hope, also helping to propel the company in this space.
Absolutely. We’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store for us all in the coming months. It’s great to have you, Will, thanks for your time.
Thank you. I have been made to feel ridiculously welcome here at Apteriors. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you all. Despite lockdown, the team is as close as 2 meters can get you, I’m glad to have joined that!
A BIT OF FUN
Ok, Will, this is the fun bit. It’s a quick-fire round so tell us the first thing that comes to your mind. No over-thinking! Ready, Steady, Go..
