Emphasis is placed on an architectural design solution for a multi-story addition to existing buildings and preparation of construction documents for an institutional building. The student will study a multi-story steel or concrete framed and masonry enclosed structure. Floor plans, elevations, sections and details using materials typically used in construction today are sketched to scale and produced by CAD (Computer Aided Drafting & Design) AutoDesk software. Lectures relating to the basics of circulation, egress requirements, structural steel framing, masonry, codes, metal pan stairs, barrier-free design and handicap code requirements, fire protection, acoustics, glazing, curtain-wall systems, roofing and building energy conservation and sustainable strategies, supplement studio work. Students will study sustainable strategies and energy utilization through the use of energy modeling software. (Prerequisites: ARET 103C and ARET 104C; corequisite: CVET 240C) Note: course not required of students in Architectural Engineering Technology Civil Focus.
