Description of module content:

The module has two parts:

Design Project 80%
Students are required to develop a design project to meet the client's brief, showing all the required architectural drawings.

Technical Report 20%
The project will require students to critically appraise the design brief, reflect on their findings and develop their technical response to the design programme. It will require students to prepare individual technical design solutions including technical details, calculations and comparisons with building regulation standards. A technical report must justify the design and technical decisions made by students to demonstrate compliance with the client brief and building regulatory requirements.
