Catalog Description:
Untitled document
The development of preliminary working drawings for a simple residential building from preliminary data provided by instructor. Includes site analysis and site development, programming and adjacency diagrams, building planning, preliminary design, design development, and production of working drawings to meet building code requirements. Students will select appropriate structural system and other building materials, develop construction connections and details, and demonstrate the problem-solving skills needed to assess, analyze and solve common construction problems. Wood light frame, or light gauge steel, construction is featured. Freehand and instrument or CAD drafting will be used.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Course Completion of ARCH 80A and Course Completion of ARCH 56


Recommended Preparation:
Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100

COURSE CONTENT

Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Develop preliminary drawings utilizing freehand drafting skills.
2.  Analyze provided site data and prepare site planning documents.
3.  Analyze provided information on passive solar design requirements and
   apply to building design.
4.  Analyze client needs data and prepare programming documents
   and adjacency diagrams.
5.  Research and analyze simple structural system and finish materials
   options, leading to choice of system and materials to be used in
   preliminary design decisions.
6.  Analyze simple structural system and building configuration and
   develop appropriate details that meet Code requirements.
7.  Solve foundation related problems through the development of
   foundation details.
8.  Solve roof related design problems through the development of roof
   details.
9.  Identify other problems and develop needed details.
10. Create final working drawings that meet Code requirements using
   instrument or CAD drafting skills.
11. Demonstrate understanding of Code by completing Title 24 (California
   Code of Regulations, a.k.a. California Building Standards Code)
   documents and plan checking of drawings.

Assignments:
Untitled document
1.  Research and preparation of initial project data for use in project
design.
2.  Lab (or as homework): Freehand preliminary drawings: site plan, floor
plan, foundation plan, section, foundation details, roof details, and
Title 24 documentation.
3.  Lab (or as homework): Selected final working drawings: site plan,
floor plan, sections and details - others as appropriate for project, and
Title 24 documents. (Instrument or CAD drafting may be used for final
drawings.)
4.  Visits to construction sites to compare drawings with buildings (optio
nal).
5.  Quizzes, midterm and final exam.
