Central is a specialty subcontractor with a focus on high end ceiling and wall construction. With a long history of successfully completing challenging projects, we understand the advantage of leveraging technology as a way to preplan and construct a project. Central utilizes Revit and other BIM tools as a way to simplify complex designs and to ensure that a project’s design is translated effectively to the field. Whether that be through creating more detailed documentation, coordinating the schedule & logistics of a project, or pushing the ever advancing technology directly into the field, we are continuously striving to better our existing processes.
The Revit Modeler/Drafter Internship offers a student the unique opportunity to see how an architectural design is interpreted and translated by our construction team. Our projects often include unique architectural details, curved/radius features, complicated layouts, and unresolved coordination issues. The successful candidate will work alongside Central’s BIM Manager to assist our internal project management team as well as our foreman in the field to help streamline the construction process. Specific tasks include simplifying complex designs/layouts, drafting detailed shop drawings, the creation of 3D models/visualizations, as well as extracting quantities and prefabrication opportunities from Revit/BIM models.
The position offers the opportunity for a student to work on a variety of different projects ranging in both scale and typology. The student will also receive experience in the field seeing the projects they work on go from design all the way through to finished product. Our goal is for the student to walk away with a better understanding of how to draw, detail, design, and construct a building through the eyes of a specialty contractor.
