During the summer months between my two years in graduate school, I did not take classes. I was awarded a traveling scholarship for my thesis and spent this time organizing my documentation and visiting my case studies across the country. In the off days and between my travels, I worked contract for a design build firm in Denver called Tres Birds Workshop.
The client was Ligit Networks, an online advertising company for web publishers, who recently expanded into a 14,000SF office space in Boulder. Tres Birds Workshop designed and built interior partitions out of reclaimed, 60-year old boxcar flooring from the Santa Fe Railroad Line.
When I was brought onboard to join the team, the design had been ironed out and man power was needed to complete the construction. I worked outside in the beautiful Colorado sunshine with a team of individuals to plane, chop, join, sand, finish and install the tenant finish-out project.
