Architecture Internship in Dar-es-Salaam

p icon
The city of Dar-es-Salaam, with it 4 million inhabitants, is witness to a considerable construction boom and explosion of the real estate market over the last couple of years.

Project Details

As an emerging economic centre and with population growth rates of 5% per year, wide parts of the city are permanent construction sites with numerous large projects. The situation is similar in other larger Tanzanian cities such as Mwanza, Arusha or Dodoma.
Unfortunately, to save money, many building constructors prefer to build without an architect, even for large projects such as office towers and shopping centres. The quality of these buildings is therefore, often questionable. 
Many architects primarily work for public construction projects, which in Tanzania, have a large share in the total construction volume. 
An architectural office where we arrange internships, designs and manages various projects for public administration buildings, market halls, hospital wings in the whole of Tanzania and in Burundi. They also work with the construction of private office buildings, staff quarters of a large company and sacred buildings.

The design, of course, takes into consideration the preferences and taste of the country, and also its climatic conditions, which is manifested by roof designs that are suitable for the strong rains that occur during rainy season, or cross ventilation against high temperatures.

As an intern you will be able to work on designs and join the architects at the construction site to supervise the constructions that happen in Dar-es-Salaam.
Please note: If projects are being implemented at locations that can only be reached by flight, you would have to cover the travel costs yourself, as the contractors usually don't provide any budget for interns.
