ARE – Site Planning and Design

This session will guide candidates through the Site Planning & Design division of the ARE by providing general background necessary to pass the exam and provide an indication of the specific content areas that demand attention.  

The site planning & design exam covers subjects including principles of site development, environmental issues, codes and regulations, site construction materials and technologies,  zoning and the architectural process involved with site planning and design.   The principle goal of this session is not to be a primer on design, but instead to present an effective and methodical technique for approaching a difficult and unique exam.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review of Multiple-choice Topic Areas: Environmental Issues, Site development principles, material and technologies, and project and practice management associated with site planning and design.
  • Strengthen your ability to incorporate Codes and Regulations in the design of the site.
  • Review solutions of the Site Grading and Site Design Vignettes.
  • Discuss tips in using the software and tips for problem-solving the vignette.
