In a first-ever for TB+A, we gave some of our building services design engineering apprentices the opportunity to complete a 4 week placement at BGIS UK, global leaders in technical integrated building facility management services.
Whilst BGIS UK apprentices joined TB+A to acquire first-hand consultancy and design experience, apprentices from TB+A joined BGIS UK to gain an understanding of on-site FM experience within a designated site providing both parties with the opportunity to become more well-rounded engineers.
All six apprentices came together on Friday 29th July to celebrate their achievements at a closing ceremony held at 22 Bishopsgate.
Congratulations to all apprentices involved on successfully completing their secondment:
- Teddy Petken, TB+A
- Thomas Gardner, TB+A
- Charlie Hill, TB+A
- Michael Farrell, BGIS UK
- Alfie Willy, BGIS UK
- Antonio Cafaj, BGIS UK
From “fixing cables to work desks or broken lights,” Teddy Petken, Apprentice Engineer shares how he supported the wellbeing of occupants through the day-to-day maintenance and management of the building’s MEP services.
For Building Services Design Engineer Apprentice, Thomas Gardner it has improved his overall understanding of his everyday job, helping him to consider elements such as, “design constraints and access control,” which he may not have thought about previously.
