Meet The Team: Bohler Raleigh Associates and Students in the ACE Mentor Program

 

Bohler’s Raleigh office is embracing its role as mentors to a group of high school students interested in a career in architecture, engineering, or construction. Our professionals have volunteered time over the last several months to develop the students’ skills, inspire their interest in the field, and prepare them to be the industry’s future leaders.

Our team partnered up with the students through the local chapter of the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program. The program places students in the field and allows them the opportunity to work with expert professionals like Bohler, gaining valuable hands-on experience. Since the beginning of the school year, Bohler’s team of mentors has met once a week with the group, leading them through the design process of their own land development project.

This year, the students were challenged to design a new Visitor Center and Amenity for the Umstead Park in Raleigh. With the guidance of Bohler’s mentoring team, the students created a site plan, floor plan, building model, cost estimate, and construction schedule for the project. They showed off their hard work with presentations at a Presentation and Awards Night, where the students were awarded Best Budget and Schedule.

Our team looks forward to welcoming the students back in the fall to begin work on a new project and to further their mentoring relationship.
