Coordinator Mary Hardie Opens in new window

Description In this subject, students demonstrate professional standards in completing a design solution for a specific real-world project. Students expand on the design solution completed for Building Design Project 1 into a fully resolved CAD model suitable for costing, scheduling, and contracting. Students apply technical and critical thinking skills to address the project constraints, and present project documentation (site plans, floor plans, elevations, sections, details and specifications) of a quality suitable to apply for a Construction Certificate. Knowledge gained in this subject will benefit students aspiring to roles in the integrated building design industry and the delivery of building projects.
