ARE Building Design and Construction Systems

The study of construction materials and methods is useful to architects in several ways.  First, one must be aware of construction industry standards to determine what is safe and practical.  Second, one must be able to communicate design ideas through detailed drawings to those in the field who will actually perform the work.  Finally, one must recognize the limitations of skilled craftsmen while appreciating their abilities to translate mere lines on paper into real buildings.

Learning Objectives:

•Discuss key concepts of Environmental Issues and Materials and Technology.
•Strengthen your knowledge of Codes and Regulations, Project Management and Practice Management.
•Review solutions of the Ramp, Stair Design and Roof Plan Vignettes.
