This module further develops and applies advanced knowledge of the technical and practical aspects of workable, beautifully resolved design proposals.
The module integrates research, technological & environmental issues, experimentation and practical knowledge to develop and support the dissertation design project.
Students are encouraged to adopt an analytical and creative approach to resolving relevant, conflicting elements such as client / end-user needs, legislation, inclusivity, environmental implications, structure, materials, construction techniques and processes, efficient servicing, cost and durability of finishes, all whilst maintaining the aesthetic and functional intentions of a live project.
Students produce a comprehensive professional quality working drawing package which acknowledges current legislation and contemporary issues. The package includes general arrangement drawings, services drawings, detailed areas, construction drawings, detailed sections and design details. A research report supports development of the design details.
