Description An explanation and description of how the built environment works is essential to designers and construction professionals. This unit provides an introduction to physical units of measurement, tolerance, statics, dynamics, acoustics and thermal properties. It also allows students to interpret and apply the concepts of electricity, energy, work and power to the built environment. Students engage with these concepts through a hands-on learning experience including practical projects and live demonstrations.
