Interview with Chris

Chris Idema

Hey Chris, how do you like working at Mei?

The high dynamics in the office are very pleasant. A week varies from Monday a façade design, Tuesday the floor plan and then on Wednesday consultation with the advisors. And not one project, but about 5. You learn to switch easily and how to be flexible.

I really like the Mei team, a multi-national team, everyone has their own history, origin, knowledge and skills. This not only makes you better as a person, but also the product that we present as a team. And that is something we are all proud of. We have a real sharing culture!

What is your favorite Mei project?

I really can’t choose from that. I’ve already worked on more than 20 projects that I have learned a lot from. I get the most satisfaction from projects that go beyond the feasibility study and will actually be implemented.

What would you recommend to people that want to work at Mei?

Make sure that you create a good portfolio that really shows who you are! We look beyond someone’s skills, we want to see if someone fits well in the team. We are looking for people who dare to go a step further and who really want to make the office better with their own opinion and style.

Last question: Mei in three words? Dynamic, raw and informal

project architect - a week at Mei

You start the week on Monday morning with the weekly planning. You will work on multiple projects this week. For a transformation project, you schedule a scrum session with the internal design team on Tuesday to solve an important design issue. For another project, you are in consultation with the implementing parties on the construction site about the aesthetic supervision. To arrange a smooth process for a building permit request for a new project, you have an appointment with the municipality on Wednesday. Sometimes you go out alone, sometimes you accompany a senior architect. You lead a team of junior architects to make several design studies. In the meantime you consult the PR team about the publication of a project that you have contributed to. Dynamic working days, but you also enjoy some rest during the daily fresh, joint lunch. At the end of the week you made significant progress in your projects, and together with the client, you made an important decision. Maybe this is a good time to have a drink with your colleagues or play a game of table football.

Daily lunch

Do you want to have lunch with Mei?
At our XXL lunch table we enjoy a fresh joint lunch with the whole team every day. Do you want to join our lunch? Call Carmen, and explain her why you want to get to know Mei. Maybe we will meet you soon.
