Description of module content:

This module introduces the performance characteristics of construction materials, components, systems and technologies typically applied when designing non-domestic buildings.

The module employs a mix of regulatory text, graphical visualisation and technical drawings to demonstrate:
• The building’s performance criterion under non-domestic standards
• The design considerations to achieve internal comfort and external aesthetics
• The energy and construction technologies installed to achieve the design considerations

The module profiles the building’s design to contextualise the material and energy technologies for measurement, assessment and evaluation for the building’s design, operation, retrofit and sale.
The module embeds intermediate level principles for new build and retrofitting energy efficiency, sustainability and ecologically sensitivity throughout.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module, you will be able to
LO1: To identify elements and components within non-domestic construction systems
LO2: Demonstrate an understanding for the construction methods for single storey and multi-storey non-domestic buildings
LO3: Demonstrate an understanding for the retrofit/refurbishment methods for single storey and multi-storey non-domestic buildings
LO4: To identify the energy systems and operational technologies design for non-domestic buildings
