Lauren Returns to PCMS Design

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Lauren Winfield 2017 CroppedThis week, we are delighted that last year’s work placement student, Lauren Winfield, has returned to us on a permanent basis in her new role as an Architectural Technologist.

High-flying student Lauren graduated in July from UWE with a First Class Honours degree in Architectural Technology and Design. And as the icing on the cake, Lauren was also awarded the prestigious ‘Graduate Student of the Year’ prize by CIAT South West. This is awarded to the student who has performed at a consistently excellent standard across all course modules.

Lauren is relishing the prospect of working on a variety of projects at PCMS Design, from residential to public sector schemes, and is already settling back in by working on construction drawings for a home extension and a new school building.

Lauren said “I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in, and putting all that I have learnt into practice!”
