A typical day at work consisted of:
-Checking into the office then making my way to mid town, lower or downtown Manhattan depending on the location of the job to be surveyed. Normally, if it is a skyscraper to be surveyed there would be two people assigned and the work load split in half, but if it is a retail space then a single individual is assigned.
The task would be to do an interior existing condition survey of the space, which consists of measuring the interior of the space and drawing a sketch of each level. Once the survey has been completed it is back to the office to draw the sketch in AutoCAd and upload the AutoCad drawing into to the Time Frame software; this software is used to generate the rentable area, and available vacancy information from the uploaded AutoCad drawing.
This job has taught me the proper way to do an interior existing conditions survey.
Co-workers were great team players.
The hardest part of this job was surveying the boiler rooms in the basement of the skyscrapers, most of them were lonely, dark with rats etc.
Most enjoyable part of this job was the co-workers.
