ARCH 445: Building Science and Technology V
(2-0) Cr. 2. F.
Prereq: ARCH 348, Arch 348L; concurrent enrollment in ARCH 445L.
Final course in a sequence of architectural building technology courses comprising environmental systems, materials/assembly, and building structures topics. Using both lectures and labs, the three interrelated modules each emphasize a particular building technology subject with an overall focus on synthesizing and integrating building technologies together in sustainable design strategies. Topics include: integration of active environmental control and service systems into the design of larger scale buildings, the development of construction details for building shell and interiors, and the design and analysis of various long-span structural systems.
