Architect Answers: Buckhurst Hill
Our interviewee of the month this December is featuring our hardworking new graduate architect Katie (BD), who has recently just completed her second month working here at GOSS Outdoor. When asked her how she finds it, and she modestly says that she is slowly getting used to the workflow.
“I want to talk about my current project…” Katie starts off, slowly able to bring all her efforts of the past few weeks into words. “We are currently working on a project at Buckhurst Hill, for Client AO - who has requested two custom made pergola systems each with a fixed glass roof system for their private property.”
This project involves each side of the house, where the two pergolas are being installed separately. “The reason I have decided to talk about this project is that the project is still fresh on my mind, and also since it is a custom made glass rooftop pergola system, it is a very unique project for me and the company as well. It makes for a very interesting experience which is also very valuable for us.”
When asked about the challenges our architect Katie faces during this project, she explained that she was very curious to know how the project will unfold. “The main hurdle for me is the roof which is made out of glass and we do not usually provide a glass top solutions for our standard pergola systems, it all feels quite new to me.”
We work as a team together to thrive for positive results and see our projects, as well as our staff, flourish. For this purpose, we push our staff to strive for solutions and outcomes. “To help me overcome the challenges I am facing in this project, I have been working together with my colleagues to accurately measure and plan out the project, which involves the two pergolas on uneven ground. This must be done with great accuracy and attention to detail, to see the project to a seamless succession.”
“I believe the project is going to look amazing when it is completed. It will 100% fulfil the requirements of the client and the home - giving an excellent shelter from the harsh rainy and snowy weathers for the basement area which the pergolas are mounted on top of.”
