Work Experience Program

We have recently updated our work experience program to be more hands on and challenging for our placement students.

We take on students from year 10 upwards from a range of schools, colleges and sixth forms. The one week, tailored program that we offer included both 2D and 3D hand sketching, working to different briefs, 3D modelling on Sketch Up and concludes with a professional presentation of the students work.

If you are interested in undertaking a weeks work experience in a busy architectural practice then feel free to get in contact with us. We get very busy through the summer months so booking well in advance is recommended.

Four Almshouses, Little Gransden

We attended the opening of the Almshouses in Little Gransden.

The Almshouses owned by the Julia Norris Almshouse Trust, were constructed in 1902. BM3 was instructed to repair and refurbish these for elderly persons. With the proposals each flat gained 6 square metres of additional space. This represents a 15% increase in size, something that significantly improved the quality and sustainability of the dwellings.
