This unit focuses on building construction, envelope design, and performance and regulatory compliance for mid sized, mixed use, non-residential buildings. This unit studies structural systems for these types of buildings and the performance and regulatory requirements of envelopes, their typical materials and systems, and the required layering of structure and building fabric. Decision-making is supported through a BIM environment via thermal assessment of the structure, envelope and facade components for regulatory compliance and a deeper understanding of energy flows, and carbon based impacts. Service strategies are also explored. The impact of regulations on the design and detailing is investigated, particularly in relation to structure, insulation and energy use. The unit emphasises the integration of design and technology as means of investigation and communication.
