ARCH 4320 - Building Integration 1: Design


This course provides critical technical knowledge and skills for students to critically address environmental building regulations and the practice of health safety and welfare in the design of the built environment. It prepares students with the necessary foundational knowledge to work collaboratively with adjacent expert professionals to foster an integrative design process and places emphasis on developing critical approaches to both active and passive building systems and building enclosures. The course will deliver material through lectures, software tutorials and skill building workshops and requires the students to have a baseline of established knowledge on the subjects. As such, this class cannot be taken without first passing the pre-requisite courses, Construction Systems (CS) and Environmental and Ecological Systems (EES).
