Aspiring structural engineer Samuel Lucas designed his very own steel building on work experience with REIDsteel.
The sixth-former spent three weeks with us as part of his BTEC Level 3 engineering course.
He created his own steel framed building on cutting-edge software in the company’s drawing office before following his project through from beginning to end in every department.
Sam’s project culminated in a visit to a building site to see firsthand how structures are erected.
Samuel, 16, who goes to the Grange School in Christchurch, said: “It was very interesting to see the process from start to finish and how much effort goes into bringing a building to life.
“I want to be a structural engineer and this experience has definitely shown me that this is the right career for me. It has been a very worthwhile experience, with everyone making me welcome.”
