“I am proud to be a member of the Gottlieb Paludan Architects team. The projects and the way we work are characterized by high levels of professionalism and commitment, and there is a good atmosphere too.”
Flemming Wagner, Architect MAA, employed in March 2017
Gottlieb Paludan Architects employs the best and most talented people. In addition, the company offers its employees ongoing training and development, tailored to the individual employee’s role and responsibility within GPA.
Project management: Every GPA project manager who is the lead professional on a specific assignment is a member of the GPA Project Manager Forum. The members come together to participate in structured programmes on the responsibilities, duties and tools of project managers. The programmes are concise and carefully managed; both internal and external speakers contribute and members share their knowledge and experience, ensuring that the company’s knowledge is updated and employees apply uniform methods wherever relevant.
Digital development: Gottlieb Paludan Architects uses BIM, VR and other digital tools on many levels. Employees are invited to participate in ad hoc, internal training courses, adapted to specific projects or current challenges, and in external programmes, such as ICT management courses.
Skills networks: GPA employees develop their skills and professional networks via a formalized internal networking programme which supports the company’s strategic tools and business areas. The internal networks have set coordinators who organize about four annual meetings which revolve around internal or external presentations. GPA has currently the following networks: Cycling Solutions and Bicycle Culture, Materials, Public Procurement Legislation, Accessibility, Health & Safety at Work, Digital Technology, Sustainability, Project Planning and Landscape Architecture.
Professional events: “Friday Briefing” is a set weekly presentation on current projects or themes. Venues are organized together with internal and external speakers, internal workshops and study tours.
GPA Practice: Every six months, GPA runs GPA Practice which is the company’s modular induction course for new employees and interns. The seven modules provide the participants with insight into the company’s general expertise and specialisms, phased services, contractual basis and business understanding.
GPA interns: Gottlieb Paludan Architects regards interns as valuable and significant members of the organization. GPA internships provide students with the opportunity to develop their skills and professionalism while they are still at university. All interns are asked to attend the modular induction course GPA Practice, and they are allocated individual mentors who function as their supervisors throughout their internships. The mentors ensure that the individual interns are academically challenged during their internships and that they are appropriately equipped to embark on their professional careers in the construction industry.
“An internship is an ideal opportunity to collaborate with talented professionals and test your own skills.”
