Endorsement

This project has been part of transforming an area which had been a challenge in the community for decades. DMA not only provided pro-bono technical support but have been a constant source of re-assurance, morale boosts when the going got hard and incredible professionalism. It is not too far of a stretch to say that we could not have done this without them.

Endorsement

DMA really get the importance of diversity! They open their doors to kids from all backgrounds and come up with creative ways to bring out the best in even the hardest to reach pupils who have been excluded. It’s definitely “opportunities for all” at DMA - made even more impressive by the fact that this small company is having greater impact than many of the big businesses.

Endorsement

On behalf of Heathcote School I would like to thank you for this fantastic work placement that you have afforded to Charlie. During our mentoring session today, Charlie has been able to draw upon this fabulous experience to really pin down why he loves architecture and his genuine interest in exploring this avenue as a career.

Stephen  McClurg - 04 November 2015

Endorsement

Whilst working at DMA, I was lucky enough to work on a small residential project, which mirrored a realistic architectural project. This enabled me to expeience the every day life of an architect at DMA, which was my main aim for this work placement. I was welcomed by many friendly faces in the office, and was made to feel involved in every aspect (a big thanks to Max and Akin for taking me under their wing!). I learnt new skills, including how to use Revit to produce a 3D model, and how to produce a professional document by focusing and improving on various presentation aspects. I definitely feel that I have a stronger insight into the architecture profession, and I am even more convinced that I want to pursue this career, thanks to DMA.

Endorsement

This work experience was able to give me a better insight and understanding in the field of Architecture. This was acquired through the professional Architects who were more than willing to assist and answer any questions I had. Overall, I feel very privileged to have acquired this work experience. The staff were all very friendly and always willing to help. It has helped me gain crucial skills which I will have to use in my future work including; communication and problem-solving skills. Thank you very much for having me!

Eghosa  Osa-Iduma - 08 September 2016

Endorsement

One of the things that I particularly enjoyed was the opportunity to complete my own individual project from start to finish, similar to how architects complete projects in the real world. This was not only very enjoyable and gave me a great sense of achievement but it was also very worthwhile because it meant I could witness all the different stages necessary to plan and develop a building, from initial research, to designing and evaluating the project.

Max Straube - 08 September 2016

Endorsement

Thank you so much for this week and all the effort you have put into helping me, I really appreciate it and have REALLY enjoyed my time here. Everyone has been so kind and helped inspire me and give me the confidence I need to succeed.
