Class ARCH 427
Class Title Construction II
Description The objective of this course is to expand the student's understanding of construction materials, to demonstrate that modern construction practice requires the assembly of many independent components, and to illustrate the relationship of the act of building to design intentions. The course consists of three sections: steel and concrete; enclosure materials and systems; and building case studies. Specific topics include heavy timber; steel sections and connections; cast in place and precast concrete; cladding and roofing; fire protection and compartmentation; and an introduction to building types including long span and high rise. Exercises based upon concrete and steel-framed buildings concentrate upon structural and enclosure systems at the scale of both building and the detail.
