Understanding Buildings 2 extends the knowledge gained from Understanding Buildings 1. The environment and constraints impacting on a building construction project are analysed. Construction processes and materials common to many light industrial and commercial building projects are examined, including the identification of interfaces and assessment of coordination requirements. Topics covered include underground services, in-situ concrete construction, structural steelwork, roofs, exterior walls, ceilings and partitions, installation of building services and internal finishes. Upon completion of this subject, students should be able to understand more complex construction processes, terminology and methodologies.
