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.
Course Completion of ARCH 80A and Course Completion of ARCH 56
Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100

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.
