Cameron joins All Design for the summer, as he embarks on a career in architecture.
17 year old Cameron Moore knows exactly what he wants to do with his career and after securing a place at RGU in Architecture and a job at All Design for the summer, he is well on his way to living his dream of becoming an Architect.
It was through his old secondary school, Oldmachar Academy, that Cameron first found his passion for architecture. He took part in a Design and Manufacturing project, where he designed a barbecue for the home. He was given a brief and tasked with coming up with a solution. This project gave him the opportunity to design something from scratch and build it to make it fit - and he loved it! He realised then, that design was for him and so looked into getting a work placement to ‘test the water’.
In September last year, he started a placement here at All Design. The placement was for two days a week and continued through to March this year. Working for All Design confirmed to Cameron that Architecture was for him.
Cameron, who lives in Bridge of Don, Aberdeen, comments: “Working at All Design as a placement has been amazing. It really helped me make up my mind about what to do with my career. It opened my eyes to architecture and gave me the opportunity to see just how much there is to think about when doing renovations or extending or building a home. Paul, who owns the firm, was great and has helped me with the technical side of things and given me some sound advice. I feel really lucky to have landed a placement there and I think the experience will really help me in the future. It’s also great to have someone in the industry to speak to.”
Following the placement, Cameron was asked by All Design to stay on over the summer months, and earlier this month (1st June) he started a part-time job, which will see him through to September.
Paul Walber, Director of All Design, comments: “Cameron is a lovely chap and is very focussed on what he wants to do. It’s great to see his enthusiasm to learn and we are only too happy to help him along the way. It’s also really helpful for us to have another pair of hands to help out, so it’s a win:win really. I hope to be in a position to offer Cameron a part-time role during his holidays from University and I hope the experience will help him grow and develop and I wish him all the best for the future.”
In September, Cameron will embark on a seven year degree in Architecture at Robert Gordon University, where he will learn about the theory of Architecture as well as the practical side.
