During my employment with Burgess and Niple, my main responsibility was to maintain the samples library. This was my first co-op while studying Interior Design and where I began to learn about working in the field. I was in constant communication with the representatives to make sure the samples that we had were up to date. Another task was to update any drafting documents when materials changed.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working on renderings to present to the client and learning about new materials. On occasion I was able to do site visits and be able to view the end product. Most of the projects that were awarded to the company were educational buildings. Overtime this became difficult to get excited about, especially when the materials were pre-selected.
