“For my Final Major Project my client was the Earl of Shaftesbury. His house is about half an hour away from Bournemouth, he has old riding blocks that he wanted turning into wedding accommodation, as they do weddings on site. I used zero carbon design as my main inspiration, because it was a listed building there were a lot of restrictions, so it was quite a challenge. Combining old and new elements together, it was good fun.

I only met with him once, but I met his wife a couple of times. We got to go to the house, and there were 8 of us using the site as a live project. It was good though, to have an actual client with a proper brief.

I really enjoyed my time at AUB. I’d now love to get a job in this industry, whether that’s here (Bournemouth) or back home, in Guernsey. “
