Photo Progress of First NYC Jobsite

Hello everyone! I have been taking progress photos of my first New York City job site. I worked with the tools in the suburbs of New York City for the past 20 years. I am coming up on my one year anniversary of my job learning to become a CAD operator and engineer. It has been filled with lots of learning and new experiences. I have been asked to track the job through photographs. It requires me to also create drawings that reflect how the floor is truly piped out. My job feels somewhat stressful making sure I am just about perfect. This is almost impossible to do under extreme time constraints. I am learning and picking up my speed and more processes will come to me in time. I may get an opportunity to become a project manager in the future. It may seem like a better fit than an engineer. As for now, I work on my project and will do what is required. Here are some photos of the job site. It is a tech school in Brooklyn, New York. As of now, we are pouring the decks on the job. My job has been to: get the blueprints ready for submission, track them, fix and send back to engineering or to the guys in the field, take pictures of the progress, and build drawings to accurately show the drawings on the deck how they look in the photos. I work in a methodical manner and work to get each job done then move to the next one. Enjoy the photos from the job. I will speak to you all soon! Have a great Sunday! Cheers!

My First NYC Jobsite Visit!

Hello everyone! I got to go to my first job site where I've got to work on blueprints for the past year. I went to our school job that is located in Brooklyn, New York City yesterday. I learned how to do autoCAD on this job at the office. I took photos of the C1 basement level. It was good to see a job site but glad to go back to the office. I enjoyed the different job on the site. I was tickled to put work boots on. I will write more about it this weekend. I am thinking about doing a movie trailer for Book Expo 2015 in New York City. I am talking with a company about it. I will give an update this weekend as well. Have a good night! Cheers! Leslie M Jasper
