This course demonstrates a full knowledge of preparing a complete set of documents for an architectural project with an emphasis on structural construction and technical working details (bearing structure buildings). It also emphasizes the understanding of technical symbols and the expression of architectural work. Focuses on producing advanced technical drawing documents for a chosen architectural project. The course also included site visits for certain types of projects sites. Focus on various building materials and construction techniques would be emphasized based on the performing standards and codes, wherein application of each material would be discussed in detail, both in the context of historical and contemporary methodology. With time, each topic can also focus on the latest trends in practice and usage of new technology/materials. Emphasis is given on the importance of water and damp proofing in building construction. The course will be about teaching students about the bearing wall systems. Every student will bring his designed house. All students have the architectural drawings. Then, through this course, they will learn how to apply this academic project and draw structural drawings and details. It is important for the student to have knowledge on jargon and local terms used
The students will make one complete set of working drawings of a two story residential building.
Educate the student on find solutions to their problems using detail.
Educate other related construction systems (bearing structure buildings) by theoretical and practical studying (exercises and field visits)
Educate the student on designing projects with longevity with regards to the environment.
Educate students on the technical details of their projects.
After the completion of this course, the students will be able to make a complete set of working drawings
